Review
Importer Review (Kermit Lynch): Jean and Agnès Foillard took over his father’s domaine in 1980. Most of their vineyards are planted on the Côte du Py, the famed slope outside the town of Villié-Morgon and the pride of Morgon. Following the example of traditionalist Jules Chauvet, Jean and three other local vignerons Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet, and Guy Breton, soon hoisted the flag of Chauvet’s back-to-nature movement. Kermit dubbed this clan the Gang of Four, and the name has stuck ever since. The Gang called for a return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification. The end result is a rustic structure, spicy notes, and mineral-laden backbone.

94 points, James Suckling: A generous red with lots of ripe-berry, chocolate, walnut and dry-earth character. Some white truffle, too. It’s full-bodied with a round, chewy texture and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.
