Bourgogne Rouge Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair 2014
Patrice Olivier, the master winemaker behind this wine, has this gift for transforming a simple generic appellation into a wine well-worth a mention. A perfectly elegant wine that is pale in colour. Spiced cherries and vegetative decay aromas are enhanced by tart red fruit and flowery flavors. The texture is smooth as silk and the balance is impeccable. A discreet wine of great charm.

Most famous for their Bonnes-Mares and their ‘Clos Marion’, the family business of Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair was founded about 1979 when Jean-Louis Fougeray, the father of the current owners, a man who by day worked in administration and by night tending his vines, made his very first cuvée. It was from a quarter hectare of Marsannay vines – in the family since 1972 – this was the start for Domaine Fougeray.The approach is lutte raisonée, the domaine avoids chemical sprays, vineyard pests being controlled with sexual confusion methods (pheromones) and they use only certified organic compost
