Grapelive Wine of the Day
By Kerry Winslow
2010 Jean Foillard, Morgon “Cote du Py” Cru Beaujolais, French Red.
This a classic Foillard vintage with sublime balance and texture, much like a wonderful Cru Burgundy in class and style, there is no question Faillard is a great artist and his wines masterpieces all. The 2010 shows strawberry, black currants, walnut and bing cherry with hints of briny truffle, fig paste and mineral tones all in a lively mid weight palate. The finish is sublime and long lasting with a refreshing crispness and focus. While not as heady as the 2009, this a prettier and more complex wine that should age extremely well.
