About

93

"The 2011 Côte du Py from Jean Foillard is a bit more reserved than the Cuvée Corcelette, but this will clearly be a stunning example of the vintage with a few years’ worth of bottle age. The very deep and youthful bouquet wafts from the glass in a blend of black cherries, pomegranate, herb tones, a superb base of stony soil, a touch of balsam boughs, a bit of coffee grounds and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nascently complex, with lovely structure, a rock solid core, ripe tannins and outstanding grip and focus on the very long and pure finish. This is going to be a terrific bottle of Morgon, but I would give it at least a couple of years in the cellar to let the tannins soften up and the secondary layers here to start to emerge. 2015-2025+."
