Athanor - 2015 - Jean Foillard

A rich and sunny wine, as you’d expect from this vintage... A special 2015 cuvée, as we’ll perhaps never see again! A nose with notes of cherry, plum, cocoa, and stewed fruit... A style far removed from your classic Beaujolais! Rich, full and powerful on the palate, with ethereal tannins, and very long finish.

100% Gamay, of course! Natural, of course! Athanor, which means “furnace” in Latin, was produced in 2015 instead of the famous “3.14” cuvée. A selection of the oldest vines from the “Côte de Py” plots, more than 100 years old, farmed organically and planted on decaying granite and manganese soils.
