2020 Jean Foillard Beaujolais 'Fleurie'
Super allocated- we only get one case of this legendary natural wine per year!
Sourced from a tiny, one hectare plot of old vines (up to 70 years) planted on pink sandstone. 100% organic Gamay picked with highly selective hand harvesting, fermented whole cluster with native yeasts, barreled in only old wood, and bottled unfiltered with zero added sulphur.
93 points, James Suckling. "A good, punchy nose with crushed mulberries, white pepper, wild herbs, boysenberries and a fine twist of sauerkraut, extending to a linear, medium-bodied palate with silky tannins. Flavorful, ripe and long, but still refined. Drink now."
