Domaine Jean Fournier Corton Grand Cru Le Rognet
Regular price $169.99
Taking over winemaking from his father Jean in 2001, Laurent Fournier is one of the better known winemakers in Marsannay, and an initiator of Les Aligoteurs; a group of young and talented winemakers who have revived the Aligote grape. He treats the vineyards biodynamically and uses gravity in winemaking to avoid any mechanical pressing. The Fournier name is one of the oldest in the historical records in the village of Marsannay-la-Côte first appearing in the 17th century. The family (of Swiss origin) has been growing grapes for generations now as part of a polyculture farm with animals, grains, cherries and asparagus. But it wasn’t until the 1960’s that Jean Fournier created his domaine and started to bottle wine for commercial purposes. When Laurent joined Jean and assumed full responsibility for operations in 2003, he began the conversion of the vineyards to organic farming.
