2017 Alex Foillard Brouilly
Son of the infamous Gang of Four member Jean Foillard, Alex Foillard released his first vintage in 2016 after years of working at his father's estate. After study and travel abroad from Beaujolais, he returned and aquired his own vineyards in Brouilly and Côte-de-Brouilly at the age of 24 and immediately began working with organic principles.
His winemaking is typical of Beaujolais, whole-cluster fermentation with natural yeasts, no fining or filtration, and no additives of any kind bar a minute sulfur dose at bottling. Distinctly Foillard.
