Marsannay blanc, Clos du Roy, Jean Fournier - 2020

This cuvée is, for us, one of the most beautiful expressions of the white terroirs of Marsannay. The climate of the Clos du Roy gives the wines a very particular fruitiness, testimony to a very early and fairly warm climate (apricot, passion fruit), but counterbalanced by the cold character of the hard limestone which gives the wine a saline minerality. This is a very racy wine, with a very strong personality, which will not be afraid to stay a good ten years in the cellar to express its full potential.

Viticulture

Surface cultivated by the Domaine: 0.50 hectare in 4 parcels, planted at 10,000 vines/hectare. Facing east, at the foot of the slopes. The soil is red clay-limestone with pebbles, shallow, mainly composed of bedded sandstone, a very rare type of terroir in Burgundy. In the subsoil, we find colluvial sands from the Pliocene. Organic farming since 2005. Guyot Poussard pruning, severe disbudding, manual leaf removal. The soil is worked by ploughing and scratching.

Oenology

Manual harvesting in small 15 kg boxes. Sorting of the harvest in the vat room on 2 tables. Long and progressive pressing of whole grapes, partially crushed. Slight settling of the must, direct entonnage. Vinification and beginning of ageing without sulphur. Fermentation and ageing in 600-litre Austrian barrels and pieces of oak, with 10% new wood, for 1 year, with some stirring, then 6 months in vats. The wine is bottled after a light filtration and fining if necessary, following the lunar influences.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Andouillette with mustard sauce - Crispy sea bass with foie gras - Beaufort cheese soufflé - Almond trout.
