An up-and-coming domaine in the hands of Laurent Fournier, who has farmed it organically since 2004 and is currently undergoing certification. He is moving towards 350-litre barrels to avoid the overt taste of new wood while still letting the wine breathe through the staves. Marsannay bottlings include Cuvée St-Urbain, Les Longeroies (red and white), Clos du Roy and les Trios Terres old-vines cuvee, made with most of the stems included. Other vineyards include Gevrey-Chambertin and Fixin Les Petits Crais.
Wines sold "In Bond" (including BBX) or “En Primeur” are not available for immediate delivery and storage charges may apply.
Duty and VAT must be paid separately before delivery can take place.
Laurent reports a difficult start to the season, with mildew pressure, while the flowering went better in the late sectors than the earlier ones. A good, healthy crop though, so Laurent was able to use some whole bunch fermentation. Rich fruit but high acidity is the hallmark of the year, he thinks. The harvest began with Clos du Chapitre on 4th October and finished by the 12th.

One of the brightest talents in the northern Côte de Nuits is Laurent Fournier who runs the estate which carries his father’s name, as well as being the man in charge of the dossier for defining some Premier Cru vineyards in Marsannay. We have been hugely impressed with his wines for several years and are now offering them En Primeur for the first time. There is a quality of fruit here which fully reflects the joys of the Côte de Nuits, yet at rather more affordable prices.
