KUDOS TO FOXEN FROM ANTONIO GALLONI!!

 

 

“Year in, year out Foxen presents some of the most compelling wines I taste anywhere in the world. It’s hard to know where to start with these new releases, as they are exceptional from top to bottom. The Pinots are probably the most impressive wines, as they emerge from a year that had a fair amount of challenges. I was struck by the expression of site in the Pinots, wines that tend to offer notable purity of fruit. Whole clusters are used as accents rather than a central part of the winemaking philosophy. The 2019 Rhônes, which were in barrel when I tasted them, are perhaps even more promising. And then, there are the whites, which are savory, nuanced and full of character. Kudos to founders Dick Doré and Bill Wathen, along with winemaker David Whitehair for this truly stellar set of wines.”Antonio Galloni, Vinous
