2010 Beaujolais (& Cheese) Masterclass

2017-05-23 07.31.31
Dear Friends,
With the growing interest in the delightful wines of Beaujolais, WEA are pleased to conduct a specialized Masterclass featuring some top names in the region. As many have the misconception that Beaujolais can’t age and evolve, we have specially curated some prized bottles from the GREAT 2010 vintage to share with you. Aside from 3 different magnums, we will also surprise you with another even older vintage. This is a once in a lifetime chance to taste these wines which are very very hard to find in the market now. Our resident Mr. Wine will explain and host this masterclass.

This is a sit-down tasting, limited to 18 pax and comes with FOUR different artisanal cheese from who else, The Cheese Artisans.

We will taste aged 2010 Bojos from:
  • JEAN FOILLARD Morgon Cote du Py (magnum)
  • Chateau des Jacques Morgon Cote du Py (magnum)
  • Daniel Bouland Morgon Corcelette (magnum)
  • A blind even more AGED Beaujolais.
RSVP to weawines@gmail.com. Only 18 seats available.
Price: $75 nett per pax (payable upon invoice)
Date: 3 June 2017 (Saturday)
Time: 3-5pm
Location: The Cheese Artisans, 18 Greenwood Avenue, Hillcrest Park, S289212.

2015 Jean Foillard (Beaujolais)

“… 2015 is likely to be the one that delivers the greatest impact and pleasure for most wine lovers. Two thousand fifteen has plenty of candidates for wine of the year; wines that deliver concentration and energy, with opulent fruit character and the classic core of acidity that gives Beaujolais its trademark vivacity. These wines are also built to age but at the same time display an exuberance that makes many of them pretty irresistible now.”

– Vinous on the 2015 Bojos.

Ok guys, the wait is over. The Beaujolais which I know many of you have been waiting for is here. The legendary Morgons from Jean FOILLARD of course!!!

For those who haven’t been Foillard-ed, they are one of the benchmark producers of Beaujolais and one of the members of the Gang of Four. From Kermit Lynch: The Gang of Four called for a return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification: starting with old vines, never using synthetic herbicides or pesticides, harvesting late, rigorously sorting to remove all but the healthiest grapes, adding minimal doses of sulfur dioxide or none at all, and refusing both chaptalization and filtration. The end result allows Morgon to express itself naturally, as it should be without the bubblegum and banana aromas of so many other Beaujolais available today. Its rustic structure, spicy notes, and mineral-laden backbone are what real Morgon is all about.

“If you are still under the misguided belief that Beaujolais cannot make world class wine, then you have not tasted the wines from Jean Foillard.”

– Neal Martin, Wine Advocate.

World class wines. What else can we add? WEA tried a 2010 Foillard recently and wow, it’s still so young and primary! Superb aging potential, don’t look down on Bojo! Judging from previous Bojo offers, these will move fast. I mean really fast. #bojorocks #drinkmorebojo

I AM PLEASED TO OFFER:

2015 Foillard Morgon “Corcelette” *old vines*

Subtle and earthy with perfumed plum and cherry aromas that follow through to a full body, juicy fruit and a lovely finish. Subtle center palate of fruit here. Beautiful balance. From one of the the light climats in Morgon. Made from organic grapes. Rated JS93.
