Beskrivelse:

"The 2014 Bourgogne Chapitre Vieilles Vignes comes from two parcels in the vineyard (although not on the same soils or altitude as Sylvain Pataille's Chaptire). It is aged in 1one-third new oak albeit in 600-liter barrels. Despite a touch of reduction, there are some lovely ripe raspberry and wild strawberry fruit here interlaced with mineral tones. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, crisp acidity, very focused and supple with a fresh, pure finish that is an absolute delight. Anyone buying this bottle should slip it into a flight of bigger names and change a few opinions. This wine makes a mockery of the Burgundy hierarchy." 90-92 point

Driving through the thick fog to Marsannay, Kendrick Lamar on the radio, I wondered whether Laurent Fournier's wines would be as captivating as his 2013s earlier this year. The answer? Oui. Along with Sylvain Pataille, Laurent's wines are putting Marsannay on the map with or without premier cru elevation (decision scheduled for this century...maybe). I just think Laurent has a knack for producing wines that deliver way above their village cru level, with finesse, precision and complexity. When we broached the touchy subject of the suzukii fruit fly, Laurent had the same contradictory viewpoint as his fellow Marsannay winemaker, Sylvain Pataille...

"I cannot recommend these wines highly enough. I think they are undervalued by cognoscenti and they continue to represent fantastic value. The 2014 Bourgogne le Chapître, from vines that gaze straight onto Dijon’s suburbs way up in the lost appellation of Chenôve, would pose stiff competition to many a premier cru -- and that is not exaggerating once you examine its history, once the prime vineyards belonging to the “Chapitre des Chanoines de la Collégiale d’Autun.” Terroir is terroir and it shines despite urban encroachment and thanks to winemakers such as Laurent and Sylvain Pataille, these less acclaimed vineyards will survive and give wine lovers a great deal of pleasure"


Domaine Jean Fournier:

Domaine Jean Fournier er under ledelse af Laurent Fournier. Til trods for sin unge alder har han allerede meget erfaring som vinmager. Han er uddannet i Beaune og har fået en del af sin praktiske erfaring i Pomerol, hvor han var tilknyttet Château La Fleur-Pétrus.

I 2011 fik Laurent Fournier tildelt den prestigefyldte ”Trophée des Jeunes Talents”, en anerkendelse, som går til den bedste unge vinbonde i henholdsvis Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune og Côte Chalonnaise.

Domænet består af 18 ha vinmarker, hvoraf størstedelen ligger i Marsannay og giver primært rødvine, men også hvidvine og rosé. Derudover ejer Domaine Fournier marker i Gevrey-Chambertin, Fixin og Côtes de Nuits Villages. Markerne er dyrket økologisk siden starten af 2000’erne, og domænet blev certificeret i 2011.

Den høje kvalitet i Domaine Jean Fourniers vine skyldes nogle rigtig gode terroirs, vinstokke med en høj alder og ikke mindst et meget dedikeret arbejde fra vinbondens side.
