    November 16, 2019 - Light ruby color and wonderful nose of red fruit, herbs, smoke. Balanced with good acidity and soft tannins. Cherry, strawberry, floral not4s, smoke, forest, leather on the palate. Long finish. Could it improve further with age? Beautiful now.

    September 14, 2019 - Dernière bouteille bue ce jour, malheureusement !!!
    Finesse, digestibilité, longueur en bouche sont les vocables qui caractérisent le mieux cette bouteille.
    Mon fils ajoute en complément minéralité
    C'est toujours aussi bon
    Excellent !

    June 29, 2019 - My last magnum, and I wish I had many more. This is drinking so well, elegant and balanced, with beautiful aroma, fruit, and spice. Beaujolais doesn't get any better than this.

    June 22, 2019 - Robe rubis trouble;
    Nez sur les petits fruits rouges des champs & les épices. Aspect d'herbes vertes fraîches... note que je n'ai pas perçu souvent avec ce produit. Aspect terreux & roche concassées, belle ensemble, plus subtil qu'à l'habitude. Belle harmonie.
    Bouche vive, digeste, sur la fraise, les framboises & les épices. Bouche cylindrique, en longueur. Finale sur les épices brunes, salivante, harmonieux & élégant. Pointe terreuse perceptible. Frais & agréable.

    May 1, 2019 - A characteristically fine Foillard Py: pure, texturally substantive, with a slightly rich, lush feel at the back of the palate; touch of Kirsch on the tongue and in the nose; very cherry. Super balance, acidity to match most any food. Excellent with a steak sandwich on home-made sourdough.

    I haven't been buying this wine in recent vintages and need to get it back on the annual shopping list. Nine years young. Wish I could find my 2009s.

    April 16, 2019 - Very nice indeed
    Medium aromas of cherry with strong floral aspect
    Nice long finish of cherry and raspberry and wonderful herbaceousness and minerality
    Most of the "crunch" has subsided but this is really quite complex with some age on it

    March 23, 2019 - Beautiful. The first aged cru Beaujolais I've had the pleasure of experiencing and this did not disappoint. Fresh flavors of strawberry and funk of the good kind. Very firm structure with good acid. An all around pleasurable wine. Tremendous value as far as collectibility and pop and pour pleasure.

    March 13, 2019 - Bright and jewel like ruby color.

    High toned nose of and a touch of raspberries, dried herbs, blue flowers, a touch of smoke and a hint of acetone.

    Delicious and resolved palate of crunchy and sweet red fruit, lots of mid palate acid, and a weightless but strong finish. Also ends with a ferrous and ever so bitter note.

    a very fine beaujolais.
