Corcelette’s soils are of sandy pink granite. Facing south-east with a high elevation of 470 metres, the wines of Corcellete are some of the prettiest in Beaujolais. Beautiful aromatics, without the overtness of the first two wines. Raspberry, strawberry, cranberry and plum. The palate is ever so bright. Once again red fruits, with a medium weighted palate that’s so vibrant it’s refreshing. I find the tannins powdery and ever present, caressing the fruit from the get go. Not dominating mind, just there. Persistent. The Corcelette is the lightest wine in this release and the slenderest. But the structure is apparent at the front of the palate and runs the length of the wine. The balance is perfect. Wouldn’t be surprised if this is the longest lived wine of Jean Foillard’s 2018s.
Beautiful garnet colour with magenta hues and and irresistible nose of crushed strawberries, stones and minerals. The soils here are sandy over decomposed pink granite. Often the most gentle and most immediately attractive release from Jean, this again is very svelte. Superb mouthfeel, silky bright and attractive. A big, silky dimension – finishes fresh and clear. A great Corcelette. Andrew Guard – Importer
