Marsannay Le Chapitre, Jean Fournier - 2022

The terroir of Le Chapître (in the commune of Chenôve) has a long-standing reputation, since Dr Lavalle, Danguy and Aubertin classified it as the 1st Tête de cuvée in 1855 (the equal of some current GCs). Today it is classified as an 'identified Burgundy', meaning that, like 'Montre-cul' in Dijon and 'La Chapelle Notre-Dame' in Ladoix, it is the only Burgundy to be able to claim its place of origin! In the vein of Clos du Roy a little further south, this is a wine built on length, which can be a little austere in the first few months after bottling. But its long, mineral, rather saline profile and fine bouquet of red fruit give it great elegance and a distinction that makes no mistake about the value of its terroir of origin.
