Domaine Jean Fournier

Domaine Fournier is an old estate going back many centuries.  Located in the village of Marsannay, at the very northern tip of the Cótes de Nuits, the family has vineyard holdings in both Marsannay and Gevrey-Chambertin.  The latest generation of Fourniers to lead the estate is the dynamic (and frequently hilarious) Laurent Fournier who took over in 2003.  Laurent is enthusiastic about the potential of his wines.  The most significant changes he has made have been in the vineyard where he has instituted organic and sustainable practices.  As for the work in the cellar, he defers a bit more to his ancestors.  Many of the wines are fermented in the huge, ancient old foudre that remain in the old winery.  A select few wines make their way into small (but not new) barrique. The results are thrilling!  Both his reds and his white wines show depth and complexity.
