Domain: Jean Foillard

A real favourite of iDealwine, domain Jean Foillard is now an emblematic figure of the natural wine movement. This winemaker took no time in exalting the terroirs of Morgon and the Côte-du-Py, with wines that are as silky and suave as they are concentrated and made for cellaring. An unmissable signature, one of the most sought-after in the region.

Domaine Jean Foillard is, undeniably, one of the most famous producers in Beaujolais. The domain has about 15 hectares of vines, mainly in the Morgon and Fleurie appellations. Jean Foillard, who took over the property in 1981, was inspired by Marcel Lapierre to manage his vines in a style that is as close to organic as possible. Foillard's techniques aim to preserve as much fruit as possible without the use of sulphur. His meticulous and delicate vinifications result in wines with a silky mouth feel. His wines stand out for their intensity of fruit, their freshness as well as for their good balance of structure and delicacy. These are wines that can be enjoyed now or in a few years and are a gold standard for Beaujolais.

What the guides say...

  • La Revue du vin de France
Jean Foillard is one of those mythical winemakers of the Beaujolais. Through the years, he has stayed true to his style, producing stripped down, precise, natural wines. […] The wines transcribe the digestibility and freshness of Beaujolais Grands Crus.
RVF
  • Bettane & Desseauve
Jean and Agnès Foillard offer a very fruity and fresh expression of Morgon, sometimes with a wild touch.
