2013 Domaine Jean Foillard - Morgon Cuvee 3.14 (87 pts) #winereview @vins _beaujolais · ❓What was the last wine that let you down❓· ℹ️ This wine was tasted double blind aka zero context. Jean Foillard is regarded as the 'Master of Morgon'. This is one of the top cuvées of Beaujolais. This wine is 💯 Gamay. The vines are average 100 years old on granite schist soils. Traditional whole cluster semi-carbonic maceration. Aged in used oak barrels for 6-9 months· 👁 Medium+ ruby color· 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of overripe raspberry, strawberry, plum, dark cherry, stemmy, and some spices· 👄 The wine is dry, medium acidity, medium spicy tannins, medium alcohol, and medium+ body. Similar to nose with a touch of rocky minerality on the medium length finish· 🔔 Blind I called this wine a Moulin-à-Vent Cru Beaujolais with a few years of age. This was deep and brooding. The fruit was overripe and really missing alot of elegance. ⚠️ I am a huge fan of Domaine Jean Foillard and I absolutely love his Morgon Cote du Py and think it's way more elegant in the 2013 vintage. I was really let down when the wine was revealed to be Cuvee 3.14 😰 In Blind We Trust 😎· #blindtasting #france #frenchwine #beaujolais #morgon #foillard #gamay #redwine
