TASTING NOTES

"Lurid violet. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes red berry and cherry liqueur, smoky minerals and incense. Energetic, sharply focused blueberry and raspberry flavors show very good depth and pick up a hint of musky rhubarb with air. Silky, harmonious tannins provide framework to an impressively long, mineral-tinged finish that leaves behind a suggestion of Chambord." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"Some very sappy and fresh red fruits with a strawberry edge to the nose. There’s a very lively character on offer with a succulent and juicy palate. Slightly stringy tannins, nutty edge, tangy acidity and a very long, fresh finish. No oak here. Aged in concrete. Stunning debut vintage for Alex Foillard! Drink or hold to 2024." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2016 Côte de Brouilly from Alex Foillard is very pretty, wafting from the glass with a floral bouquet of rose hip and Griotte cherry. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, pure and juicy, with melting tannins, tangy acids and a fragrant, saline finish. Derived from a north-facing site with granitic and sand soils, it was matured in cement tank." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue
