A WINE TO TRY

2011 Jean Foillard Morgon ‘Côte du Py’

Beaujolais, France

$32 to $39

Rich and layered

Goes with: Grilled sausages, stews, a simple roast chicken or duck

I could drink a bottle of this Morgon “Côte du Py” from Jean Foillard every week with the greatest of pleasure. How beautiful is the bottle, with its red wax seal? The wine itself is soft and unctuous, tasting of prunes and dried cherries, a voluptuous cru Beaujolais made with painstaking care. The organically farmed vines from the famed Côte du Py range from 10 all the way up to 90 years of age. This is a very serious Gamay.
