Domaine Didier Fornerol 2020 Côte de Nuits Village Rouge, Burgundy, France

Didier Fornerol was the vineyard manager and cellar master at Domaine de L’Arlot from 1982 until 1998, working under Jean-Pierre de Smet for most of those years. In 1999, Didier left L'Arlot to take over his family's domaine. Today, he works 6 hectares in the village of Corgoloin around his family's historic estate.

Farming: Lutte raisonnée

Name of Winemaker/Chef du Cave: Didier Fornerol

Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir

Terroir / Soil: shallow, brown limestone soils notorious for deeply reaching vines, which draw character soils formed by the weathering of the bedrock and brown limestone soils. 3.70 hectares across three different parcels west of the village of Corgoloin, one near the town cemetery and two more at a higher elevation along the Route de Villiers. The average vine age is 40 years.

Vinification/Oak Usage: An avid believer of whole cluster fermentation, Didier employs this technique religiously. Reds are manually punched down with the occasional pump over, then fermented at a slightly higher temperature.

Aging: aged 14-16 months entirely in barrel (10% new).
