The Morgon Cuvee Classique is ruby red with a robust nose of complex red and black fruit aroma, as well as earthy notes. On the palate, it is similarly layered: sour cherry, black plum, dried flower and leather, with great depth and a lengthy finish. This is a lighter style of wine that nevertheless offers wonderful complexity and depth.

Domaine Jean Foillard Morgon Cuvée Classique is a wine with a deep, vibrant color and a complex bouquet of red fruits, spices and floral notes. The palate is lively with a refreshing acidity, balanced tannins and a long, silky finish. This wine is made from Gamay grapes grown in the Morgon appellation in Beaujolais, France and is aged in oak barrels for 6-9 months.

Jean and Agnès Foillard took over the Domaine from Jean`s father in 1980. It wasn`t long before their wines reached the cult-like status they enjoy today. 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. Jean and three other local vignerons, Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet, and Guy Breton, soon joined in on the movement. This Gang of Four, as christened by famous American importer Kermit Lynch, called for a return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification - 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 sulphur dioxide or none at all, and refusing both chaptalization and filtration.

The wines are a true and natural expression of Morgon. With access to the very best vineyards in one of the most renowned areas of the appellation, the Côtes du Py', and 60-year-old vines, Jean`s wines are full of life and character and show incredible depth and purity.

 It is an excellent choice to pair with red meat, game or cheese.
