Marsannay, Cuvée St-Urbain, Jean Fournier (magnum) - 2020

The name of this wine comes from the old monastery which bordered the estate and was destroyed 400 years ago. The only remnant is the dovecote, which can be found on the estate's labels. Laurent Fournier's interpretation emphasises the finesse and fruit, as well as the sapid character of the stony soils. The notes of burlat cherry are irresistible and the Q/P ratio is first-rate!

Surface cultivated by the estate: 3.5 ha in 5 plots planted at 10,000 vines/hectare. Age of the plots: about 0.5 ha of 35 years old in Ouzeloy, 1 ha of 35 to 55 years old in Etalles, 0.5 ha of 15 to 50 years old in Echezots, folding of the vines of less than 40 years old in Longeroies and Clos du Roy. Eastern exposure, bottom of the slopes. Soil composed of rolled pebbles from alluvial fans and an old river bed. Organic farming trials have been carried out since 2003. Certified organic cultivation since 2008. Ouzeloy and Echezots are pruned in cordon de Royat. Severe disbudding. Soil maintenance by ploughing (clawing and weeding) during the spring; then spontaneous grassing, manuring with organic compost. Manual leaf removal.
