Domaine Jean Fournier

Background

Domaine Jean Fournier is run by Laurent Fournier, one of the top growers in the Côte de Nuits’ most northern outpost. The domaine extends over 16 hectares in the appellations of Marsannay, Fixin, Cotes de Nuits Villages and Gevrey-Chambertin, although we have chosen to focus solely on the wines from Marsannay itself, where they hold vines in three of the best sites; Les Es Chezots, Le Clos du Roy and Les Longeroies. They have been certified organic since the 2008 vintage, having farmed organically since Laurent took over the running of the domaine from his father in 2004.

Laurent is interested in Biodynamics and expects to reach certified status ‘little by little’. Stylistically, the wines are fresh, fruit-driven and fine with well-integrated oak and high-quality tannins. Definitely one to watch for the future.
