Domaine Jean Fournier is located in the village of Marsannay-la-Côte, in Burgundy. It is one of the oldest in the region, in fact it was mentioned in writings during the time of Louis XIII.  Jean Fournier took over the family estate in 1962, his son Laurent took over operations in 2003 and runs the estate today. 

The estate is comprised of 16 hectares of vines located on the terroirs of Marsannay and Gevrey-Chambertin. In 2008 it was converted to organic farming and certain biodynamic practices are also used such as respect for lunar rhythms. The vines are quite old (about sixty years old).  The domaine is characterised by its long élevage (up to three years, in barrels and vats). This contributes to the quality of the wines, which are powerful.  The appellation and this producer is highly reliable; don’t let this one fly under the radar!

Tasting Notes

Upfront aromas of red fruit, game, smoke and forest floor.  Taut tannins but lush ripe red fruit create wonderful balance.

Method

Made from organically grown Pinot Noir grapes that undergo an extended vat and bottle ageing before release.
