100% Gamay, of course! This cuvée comes from a climat known as "Les Charmes", a zone facing south-south-east, with poor, quick-draining granite soils, crisscrossed by veins of shale and manganese, and an altitude of between 300 and 450 meters. Vines farmed organically since the beginning but Jean has never sought certification. The rest is a matter of tradition: harvesting by hand, whole bunch vinification, carbonic maceration, 8 months of maturation in barrels that have seen several wines. Unfined, unfiltered, just a little pinch of sulphur.

Jean Foillard

Jean Foillard, P'tit Jean to his friends, joined his family’s estate of 8 hectares in 1981. Son and grandson of vignerons, one could say it was simply in the order of things that he’d return to the fold. Today, the renown of his wines has made him a revered giant of Beaujolais. At the celebrated Côte de Py vineyard site, Jean creates natural wines while following the precepts of Jules Chauvet....
