One of the iconic wines of the natural world. Ethereal qualities, so much presence and pleasure.


One of the premier producers in Beaujolais, whose wines have reached cult status in the natural wine world. The Morgon Cru typically produces some of the fullest and most structured wines of Beaujolais. ‘Cote du Py’ is the most famous climat in Morgon, if not all of the Beaujolais region. The wines produced from here have an intensity not often achievable with Gamay alongside persistence and ageability. Powdery tannins and succulent acidity shape a palate with deep blue and red fruit character and definite minerality. This is an outstanding iteration.

Producer: Jean Foillard

Region/Country: Morgon, Beaujolais, France

Grape/s: Gamay

Production Method: Organic farming, natural winemaking. Maturation in old foudre, bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Profile: Gamay has been best known for producing fresh and fruity wines for early consumption. This is now changing, with the natural wine movement in Beaujolais, and more producers placing more emphasis on high quality production meaning Gamay has enjoyed a renaissance of sorts. Wines now show racy acidity alongside richness of fruit and clear minerality. Plantings are increasing outside of France, with producers in Australia, New Zealand and USA producing wines in a range of styles.

Classic Regions: Beaujolais, Loire Valley (France), Yarra Valley (Australia), Central Otago (New Zealand), USA

Domaine Jean Foillard

Most of their vineyards are planted on the Côte du Py, the famed slope outside the town of Villié-Morgon and the pride of Morgon. Early on, Jean began to follow the teachings of Jules Chauvet, a traditionalist who defied everything that the more commercial brands were touting in the region. This estate comprises nearly fourteen hectares. Foillard’s Morgons are deep, structured, and complex, with a velvety lushness that makes them irresistible when young despite their ageing potential.
