Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Tasting notes: "The 2020 Bourgogne Aligoté En Auvonne exhibits aromas of pear, peach, white flowers and toasted nuts. Medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with bright acids and a saline finish, it's fermented and matured in demi-muids." - William 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.
