Domaine Agnes et Jean Foillard

MORGON / FLEURIE
*Starting with old vines, never using synthetic herbicides or pesticides, harvesting late, rigorously sorting to remove all but the healthiest grapes, adding minimal doses of sulfur dioxide or none at all, and refusing both chaptalization and filtration. A deep structured Morgon that express itself naturally.
To put it as simple as possible; Nothing Added, Nothing Removed. A return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification.

A return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification that allows Morgon to express itself naturally, Its rustic structure, spicy notes, and mineral-laden backbone are what real Morgon is all about.

Jean and Agnès Foillard took over his father’s domaine in 1980 with 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. These granite and schist soils sit on an alluvial fan at the highest point above the town and impart great complexity. However, great real estate is not the only key to Foillard’s success. 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.
