Description

A cool essence of various red berries, cassis, floral and spice elements are trimmed in hints of wood toast. There is both good energy and detail to the sleekly muscular and lightly stony medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a mocha-inflected and slightly firmer finish. This is definitely on the riper side but not so much that it becomes heavy or plodding and it does offer excellent complexity. - BH92

The Winery

Domaine Forey Père et Fils is a Burgundian wine producer based in Vosne-Romanée in the Côte de Nuits region. The domaine devotes the almost the entirety of its wine portfolio to red wines made from Pinot Noir, producing two grand crus from Vougeot and Flagey-Echezeaux, along with five premier crus.

The Forey family has an established presence in Vosne-Romanée and oversaw the viticulture and vinification of the La Romanée Grand Cru vineyard, the smallest of appellation in France, until 2001. Today, the estate is managed by Régis Forey who, since the 1980s, has extended its total vineyard holdings to 9 hectares (22 acres), with the purchase of an additional Echezeaux Grand Cru vineyard parcel and Les Gaudichots Premier Cru vineyard plots. Biodiversity is promoted throughout these vineyards, with the use of manmade chemicals kept to a minimum.

The entire grape harvest is destemmed and, following fermentation, aged in oak barrels. Domaine Forey Père et Fils ages its grand and premier cru wines in 80-100 percent new oak barrels, while its village level offerings see 10-30 percent new oak. Racking only takes place once the wines are ready to be bottled without fining or filtration.

The Domaine Forey Père et Fils wine range also features three village-level wines, as well as four Bourgogne wines. - Information from Wine Searcher.
