If the name Jean Foillard rings a bell or the label looks familiar, that's because it is! Jean Foillard is without question, the best producer in Beaujolais. These are some of the most sought-after wines in the world and with good reason. Jean Foillard is one of the greats – not just for Beaujolais but for the French wine industry as a whole – starting his career as one of the disciples of French winemaking legend Jules Chauvet (together with Yvon Métras, Marcel Lapierre, Guy Breton and Jean-Paul Thévenet), he and his wife Agnès have been working their vineyard in Morgon together since 1980, and for the past decade have been joined by their son Alex, who has been producing wines under his own name (and under Jean's tutelage) for five years now too.

As always, these wines are deep, structured and complex, or as pioneering French wine importer Kermit Lynch puts it, "always with a velvety lushness that makes them irresistible when young, despite their aging potential."

Cote du Py is perhaps Jean's most famous cuvée - it's certainly the one that sells out the fastest! It's 100% Gamay Noir from the Côte du Py hillside site, 10-90 year old vines, grown on schist, granite and manganese soils. 100% whole bunch fermentation, some carbonic maceration influence, then aged 9 months in aged French oak barriques. Plush, velvety, intense.

3L Jeroboam. NB: Must be collected from store, we cannot ship it safely due to its size.
