Burgundy is not a high production region at the best of times. And while 2021 was certainly a struggle by way of quantity (some parts even down 90%!), the cooler vintage offers welcome relief from the slightly rounder vintages that preceded it. We are very excited to see a return to Burgundy as we know and love it; silky, tense and with that signature delicate nuance so unique to the best of Burgundy.

Vintage Report

It is no secret that the Burgundy 2021 vintage will be one of the smallest in recent history, largely due to a series of frosts that hit the region from the 6th to 9th of April. But despite the reduction in quantity, from a qualitative perspective, this is a wonderful return to the elegance of classical Burgundy after several warmer vintages.

Focus Domaine | Jean Fournier

Domaine Jean Fournier is perhaps best known for producing precise and complex wines from Marsannay. The domaine’s 22.5 hectares that spread across the Cote de Nuits and the Cote de Beaune allow Laurent Fournier to create an outstanding range of 25 different wines. Eight years ago Neal Martin wrote that Fournier “makes a mockery of the Burgundy hierarchy” , a sentiment which echoes true today as Laurent continues to produces wines that make the case for Premier Cru sites in Marsannay.
