Crushed violets and attractive dark strawberries and raspberries on the nose with a slightly flinty, stony edge of graphite. The palate has depth and density, which set it apart from the Corcelette. More depth and richness here. A long, powerful and deep-set palate. Acidity holds the finish fresh. Needs a year or two. Drink from 2020.
Lurid ruby. An expansive, mineral-accented bouquet displays powerful red and dark berry, incense and potpourri qualities, and a Moroccan spice nuance adds urgency and lift. Bright, seamless and alluringly sweet, offering palate-staining black raspberry, blueberry, violet pastille and spicecake flavors that slowly firm up with aeration. Shows superb depth and clarity, with nary a rough edge to be found. Closes supple, sweet and insanely long, leaving a sexy floral note behind. (JR)
The 2016 Morgon Côte du Py is more convincing on the nose than the Morgon Corcelette at the moment, with vivacious dark cherry, raspberry and orange blossom aromas soaring from the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, quite linear and very focused with a saline touch on the finish. There is great potential here, and it constitutes one of Jean Foillard's most promising offerings in 2016. Jean Foillard was away from the domaine when I visited. Readers should refer to my introduction with respect to his son, Alexandre. Needless to say, these are extremely well crafted, low-intervention wines using minimal SO2, used barrels and no fining or filtration. All that is irrelevant if the wine does not taste good, and Foillard's wines have tasted brilliantly for many years, as attested by a stunning 2004 Morgon Côte du Py that would surpass many a hi-falutin Côte de Nuits!
