Domaine JEAN FOURNIER Bourgogne "Le Chapitre" Vieilles Vignes 2018
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: It is a wine built over the length, which can be a bit austere in the first few months after setting. But its long and mineral profile, rather saline, its fine bouquet of red fruits gives it great elegance and a distinction that does not deceive the value of its original terroir.
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.
