Alex Foillard, Beaujolais Villages 2020
Foillard and Beaujolais are two words in complete symphony. Alex, the youngest son of Jean, has sourced fruit from an awesome old vine plot just below Régnié. Wonderfully lifted and fragrant, it tastes almost infused rather than extracted. A wine that really does flow. Stunning.
