- ABV 13%
- Closure: Cork
In 1994, having previously done six month internships with Henry Jayer and Domaine Drouhin, Oregon, Jean-Marie Fourrier took over the domaine from his father Jean-Claude who had been working the vines since the early age of just fourteen. Upon inheriting these vineyards he was keen to move away from his fathers methods of blending all grapes from their many vineyards together, to showcasing each on their own. The results of all this meticulous work are very appealing wines, each of which shows the character of its provenance clearly.
All the wines, whether village or grand cru, are matured in 20% new oak, the idea being to keep renewing the barrel cellar rather than to influence the fruit with any barrel flavours. The wines are not racked at all until transferred to tank about two months before bottling in the spring, eighteen months after harvest.
Aromas of ripe cherries, citrus rind and rose petal preface the 2017 Bourgogne Rouge, a medium-bodied, supple and succulent wine that's charming and fruit-driven. It will offer considerable early appeal.
