Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Tasting notes: "From vines planted at elevated densities, the 2020 Marsannay Clos du Roy Blanc exhibits notes of white flowers, citrus zest, crisp orchard fruit and nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and racy, with bright acids and a saline, mineral finish, it shows plenty of promise." - Willam Kelley, The Wine Advocate
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.
