Marsannay, Les Longeroies, Jean Fournier - 2017

  • Provenance: Burgundy
  • Appellation: Marsannay
  • Domain: Jean Fournier
  • Grape variety(ies): Pinot noir à 98%, pinot beurot à 2%.
  • On-call time: 15 years
  • Alcohol degree: 13.15%
The name of the climat comes from "longe-raies" which means "long ploughing lines", referring to the vast and wide slope perfectly exposed. Its wines, among the most recognised in the village, deserve to be classified as 1er Cru. This 2017 is a perfect example: the wine is dense and full-bodied, with fine tannins, classic liquorice black fruit notes from the cool wind exposure, and an earthy character that evokes the best Gevrey-Chambertin!

Viticulture

Surface cultivated by the Domaine: 4.5 ha in 6 plots, planted with 10,000 to 13,000 vines/ha. Age of the plots: +/- 1 hectare of 10 years old, 1.5 hectares of about 30 years old, 1.5 hectares of about 50 years old and 0.5 hectares of 70 years old. Exposure east/south-east to south-east. Clay-limestone soil, composed of white oolites, Prémeaux limestone, and in the subsoil salmon marl, and pebbles from the old Ouche river bed. Organic farming since 2005, certified since 2008. Pruning in cordon de Royat, severe disbudding, manual leaf removal. The soil is worked by ploughing, followed by spontaneous grassing during the summer. No chemical fertilizers, only organic composts since 2000.

Oenology

Hand-picked in small 15 kg crates, sorting of the harvest in the vat room on 2 tables, 60% destemming, and therefore 40% whole bunches, cold pre-fermentation maceration for 6 days, temperature control throughout the vatting period (approximately 24 days), punching down of the cap during fermentation, then pumping over, gentle pressing and separation of free-run juice from press juice. Maturation 80% in 1/2 Muids (600 litres), and 20% in 228 litre rooms, about 40% new wood, for 18 months. The wine is matured without fining, after light filtration, following the lunar rhythms and natural conditions.
