Tasting Notes

Forey farms 14 separate parcels that cover together a bit more than one hectare to create the village Vosne Romanée. Most of the vineyards are on the northern side of Vosne bordering Vougeot. The oldest parcel was planted in 1942 and the major portion of this wine is from vines in excess of 40 years of age.

Staff Pick Notes

"There are no common wines in Vosne." So wrote an abbée back before the French Revolution. Even then the wines of this small village were highly prized (not surprising given that winemaking here dates back to 890 AD.) Today it's home to some of the most expensive wines in the world: Romanée -Conti, La Tache, Richebourg. Domaine Forey was founded in 1840, and is now run by Régis Forey the founder’s great great grandson. Since 1995 Regis has diminished the use of sulphur, partially destems, and has his wines undergo a short, cold maceration, making them more concentrated and muscular than those of his father, Jean. The 2015 is still young (decant if you open now), but there’s plenty of pleasure to be found: lots of cherry, raspberry with hints of forest floor and spice. A wine uncommonly good.

Burgundy

The range of wine styles offered in Burgundy rivals that of any other region. In Chablis, Chardonnay is left unoaked to produce lean, crisp, steely wines with incredible acidity - a far cry from the vanilla-oak bombs that so many consumers associate with this grape. Fans of rich, unctuous, and well-oaked Chardonnay will enjoy Chassagne-Montrachet, whose age-worthy offerings offer all the fatness...
