ALEX FOILLARD

Red Wine

Alex Foillard, Brouilly 2020

Place: Beaujolais, France

Grape: Gamay

Vibe: Natural, richer

Grapes from the La Folie lieu-dit, which is north facing, ideal for freshness. Yet we're still in Brouilly so expect plenty of fruit. The topsoil is stupidly shallow here, with the vines sitting on pretty much pure granite. Up for debate whether you can taste rock but it definitely floods the structure. Tensile as all hell. Great drinking but we already knew that, didn't we. ABV: 12.5%

Regular price £33.15

Taxes included

Only 2 left

Alex Foillard is the son of legendary member of the Morgon ‘Gang of Four’, Jean Foillard. He’s been involved in the family winemaking business since he was a youngster, helping his dad out with the grape picking during harvest. After studying agriculture in Montpellier, then viticulture and oenology in Beaune, he interned in Japan and Australia before returning to the Beaujolais in 2015 and getting straight to work. He purchased his own vineyards in Brouilly and Côte de Brouilly aged just twenty-four, bringing variety to the family cellars which were previously chocka with Morgon and a barrel or two of Fleurie. He worked his vineyards organically and produced his first cuvée in 2016. Though he diversified the terroirs represented in the Foillard cellars, he has continued working to his father’s principles – minimum intervention, to ensure the final product speaks to the nuances of the land it came from.
