An Essential:
2022 Fornerol Côte de Nuits-Villages Rouge

Posted by Ian McFadden

Didier Fornerol's Côte de Nuits-Village has become a pillar of our red Burgundy program.

Fornerol's time-capsule Burgundies excel at gracefulness and terroir-soaked lightness.  They are clearly wines of the old school.

I have a soft spot for Côte de Nuits, mostly due to Bachelet's wines, but also a new generation of producers, like Camille Thiriet and Jérôme Galeyrand. Didier Fornerol takes Côte de Nuits to a level of class that I thought was impossible.

In 2022, Fornerol's Côte de Nuits is gorgeous. I like the poise and detail.  As always, there's a lovely texture to the wine with buoyant earthy minerality. The 2022 has a radiant clarity that makes it stand out.

Didier Fornerol was the vineyard manager and cellar master at Domaine de L’Arlot from 1982 until 1998. In 1999, he returned to his family's domaine. Today, he has fine-tuned the winemaking at the domaine with crucial help from L'Arlot's legendary Jean-Pierre de Smet. Given how much we've loved many of the older L'Arlot wines, it's no surprise that Fornerol is so important to us.

I'll close with a warning. This is a small parcel. Given the demand for this wine, we're expecting a quick sell-out. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.
