Un marsannay très apprécié des dégustateurs pour ses arômes fruités et légèrement boisés, sa texture soyeuse, sa générosité et sa profondeur. Une merveille ! More info

The Longeroies is a very beautiful Marsannay, and is particularly beloved of professional tasters, who often award it "favourite" status. The élevage in 600-litre demi-muid barrels is perfectly controlled, lending an extra length to the wine, while retaining its fruitiness. The nose delivers beautiful aromas of red and black berries mingling with subtle woody notes. On the palate, it reveals a silky, delicate texture with fullness and depth, a slightly tart side and a long, fruity finish. This wine makes a perfect pairing for white meat (poultry, veal).

Marsannay Les Longeroies Jean Fournier (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Coq au vin, Jarret de veau aux petits légumes.

    Information about domain Jean Fournier

    Domaine Jean Fournier is one of the oldest in Marsannay, and the family has been present since the 17th century. The vineyard is spread over 16 hectares, spread over the best terroirs of the appellation. The vineyard is dominated by Pinot Noir, supplemented by a little Aligoté, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc. Since 2003, Laurent Fournier has been the head of the family farm. The domaine has long been involved in sustainable and responsible farming, before being certified as organic in 2008. Certain biodynamic practices are also used such as respect for lunar rhythms. The vines are quite old (about sixty years old), the extractions are very sweet and exact and élevage is long (up to three years, in barrels and vats). This contributes to the quality of the wines, which are powerful and typical of their terroir and their vintage. This area has demonstrated the high quality of its wines, which means that the appellation is highly reliable and should gain fame over the years to come. Keep your eye on this domaine!
