Zoom 2018 Alex Foillard Brouilly

2018 Alex Foillard Brouilly

$75
off

Now in his third vintage, it's clear that Alex Foillard has an extraordinary ability to coax aromatic complexity and silky texture from the Gamay grape.

To say that Gamay runs in the blood would not be such a terrible exaggeration for Alex Foillard. The son of 'Gang of Four' Morgon producer Jean Foillard, Alex had early exposure to the world of wine, and more specifically, to the principles of low-intervention winemaking that brought his father to stardom in natural wine circles.

While Alex’s involvement in the family business began at a young age, it was 2015 that Alex truly began dedicating himself to the family domaine. The following year, and only twenty-four years old, he purchased his very own vineyards. With roughly a hectare each in the crus of Brouilly and Côte-de-Brouilly, he immediately began working them according to organic principles.

FAQ

What is natural wine?

The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.

Are your wines vegan friendly?

In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.

Are your wines chemical free?

In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
