2019 Alex Foillard Brouilly
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.
Alex’s involvement in the family business began at a young agent 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.
Jean’s influence is evident in this Brouilly. It has more weight and power than some of the other wines made by the family but it still has the same trademark deliciousness that is unmistakably Foillard!
