PRODUCT REVIEWS

At 27 years old, Alexandre Foillard started to produce exceptional wines that will soon be a regular feature in the world’s best collections, as he is establishing himself as THE rising star of the Beaujolais region, following in his father’s footsteps, Beaujolais royalty Jean Foillard. Here is a winemaker whose biodynamically-produced wines proved that Beaujolais wines could, and should, compete on the global stage by regularly outperforming far "grander" wines of the Côte d’Or.

With 26 years of wine trade experience behind me, I would not hesitate in saying that Jean Foillard is my favorite grower. Though this may be about to change...

Son Alex has inherited his father’s skill and has learnt from the very best. His wines, produced in the communes of Brouilly and Côte de Brouilly follow the same, irrepressible style so vividly captured in his father’s wines. The 2017 vintage (only Alex’s second commercial release) available at under £20 per bottle in bond, has already drawn in very positive critical acclaim and even at this early juncture it is clear to see that here a star is born… With an allocation of just 10 cases of bottles and a mere 3 cases of magnums, Mr.Wheeler is delighted to be the first UK merchant to offer Alex’s 2017 Brouilly. I will be buying, and I wholeheartedly recommend that you join me.
Martin Wheatley, Mr.Wheeler Wine

Critics scores:
"Alexandre Foillard continues to establish himself as one of the most talented members of the Beaujolais's young generation… (his) wines are already very much an open secret, but they are worth seeking out"
The Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Brouilly wafts from the glass with aromas of sweet red cherries, citrus rind and flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, succulent and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit, ripe acids and fine concentration. One-third of the cuvée was matured in used barrels, the balance in cement tank. This cuvée is typically firmer and more structured than Alex's Côte de Brouilly, turning appellation stereotypes on their heads, but this vintage is the exception. Drink 2018-2028" 
92pts, William Kelley
