Domaine Didier Fornerol, Côte de Nuits-Villages 2018

In Burgundy, the quality of a wine and the prestige of the vineyard it comes from tend to be closely linked. Those 13th century monks knew what they were doing. There are outliers, however, and chief among them are the wines of Didier Fornerol. 

Fornerol feels like insider’s Burgundy. None of his bottlings carry glitzy classifications, but all of them provide a pristine window into savory, old-school Burgundy. That very much goes for today’s red. It’s spicy and deeply textured, a collectible wine that you can and should enjoy as often as possible.

Here's what you should know about it:
  • After more than 15 years as vineyard manager and cellar master at Domaine de L’Arlot, Didier took over his family’s domaine in 1999.
  • Like Dujac and DRC, Fornerol is a firm proponent of whole-cluster fermentation, yielding peppery, textured pinot noir.
  • This 2018 is in a perfect place today.
Things we actually said...

“Fornerol’s wines come from humble appellations, and the prices reflect that. But make no mistake about it, this is serious Red Burgundy.”
