2010 Morgon Côte du Py Jean Foillard, Beaujolais region, France. I enjoyed this wine last month at Texture, London. The color was beautiful, as shown here, as was the resemblance to a Burgundy, but at a fraction of the price. The sommelier was correct…it had a nice minerality and fruit more reminiscent of a Pinot Noir than a Gamay, especially for a young wine. I paired this Morgon with lamb. The entire meal was one of the most memorable restaurant experiences during my recent trip.
