Cotes de Nuits Village, Didier Fornerol 2020 (375ml)
Didier Fornerol used to make wines at the great Nuits-St-Georges property of Domaine de l’Arlot. He has taken all the knowledge and expertise he gained there and put it into his family’s own property. The results punch well above their appellation.
Didier’s three plots could not be better placed, with 0.8 hectares in the village of Corgoloin. In the 1930s Corgoloin was invited to join the Nuits-St-Georges appellation but they turned it down due to worries over extra taxes. Their loss is our gain, as these wines are as good as Nuits-St-Georges, especially in Didier’s hands, but without the price tag.
"A smooth, accessible wine with cool fresh red fruit, lively acidity and ripe melting tannins. It is balanced and fine and has a juicy long finish. Drink 2023 - 2029 (for half bottles)"
