Marsannay Clos du Roy 2015
“Domaine Jean Fournier is one of my favourite growers up in Marsannay, a source of well-made, lively and characterful wines that always please… This is one of Fournier's best offerings this vintage and comes highly recommended.” – Wine Advocate
Biodynamic and certified organic, Domaine Jean Fournier is one of the very best producers in Marsannay. And according to Decanter Magazine, now that Laurent has taken over from his father Jean, he “is bringing new dynamism to the wines.” Marsannay doesn’t have crus, but Clos du Roy would certainly become one if that changes. Fournier’s old vines were planted between 1945 and 1970, so the fruit they produce is concentrated and layered with complexity. Dense dark cherry, wild strawberry, blackcurrant and a pinch of sea salt and spice; this would be an exceptional choice for Christmas dinner, but also for slow cooked French classics, seared duck breast and Mushrooms à la Grecque.
Fournier has been one of the top names in Marsannay for many generations. As well as growing grapes, they also farm cherries, asparagus, grains and livestock.£5.6 per 100.00ml
