Domaine Jean Fournier Marsannay Rouge Es Chezots 2013
SKU DMS 1645
Domaine Jean Fournier dates back to the reign of Louis 13th in the early 17th century, making it one of the oldest properties in Marsannay. Today the Domaine's 16 hectares are helmed by the dynamic young Laurent Fournier, son of Jean, who crafts wines with integrity in a non-interventionist style. He has converted the vineyards to organic agriculture and has been Ecocert certified since 2008. Old vines can be found throughout the Domaine, contributing to the immense purity and finesse Fournier's wines are known for.
Harvest is completed manually and grapes are hand sorted to guarantee that the wine is made from only the highest quality fruit. Grapes ferment in barrel for up to three weeks and the wines are then aged for three years in both 25 and 50 hl barrels allowing them plenty of time to esh out. The result is precise wines of great ageability, weight, and texture.
"Real density on the note. Serious Stuff made with the lightest of hands on the tiller. Bone dry but with lots of character - orange peel note. Beautifully constructed." - Jancis Robinson
