From one of the highest altitude vineyards in Morgon, ‘Les Charmes’, Jean Foillard’s Eponym is a transcending example of gamay’s ethereal side.

A ‘Gang Of Four’ member, the term widely known in the world of Kermit Lynch Imports, Jean Foillard followed the traditional mindset and practices of Jules Chauvet. Alongside Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet, and Guy Breton these four vignerons focus on older vines, abstain from herbicides and pesticides, harvest late, sort rigorously to remove damaged grapes from the bunches, add minimal sulfur (or none at all) and refrain from both chaptalization and filtration.  These are natural wines made with knowledge and experienced decision-making.
