Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: The attack is lively and delicate, and the wine unfolds slowly on a very straight frame. This wine is full-bodied but extends in length and does not disperse in an indeterminate explosion of flavours. Clean and elegant, it ends with notes of discreet spices.
About the winery: Domaine Jean Fournier is seen as one of the best producers of Marsannay, and winemaker Laurent Fournier is certainly at the forefront of elevating Marsannay as a wine and as a community. The Fournier name is one of the oldest in the historical records in the village of Marsannay-la-Cote, first appearing in the 17th century. Fournier's current holdings cover 17 hectares of vines, with many ranging between 20 and 70 years old and covering the most lauded sites of the AOP.
