Domaine Forey Pere et Fils Vosne-Romanee 2014 750ml
Vosne-Romanee, Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Domaine Forey Pere et Fils, an estate established since 1840 in Burgundy was renown for exploiting the famous Grand Cru La Romanee, property of the Liger-Belair family, after 2001, the lease was not renewed. Foreseeing the loss of vineyards, Regis Forey in charge since 1987, got the audacity of acquiring some Echezeaux Grand Cru and a parcel of Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Les Gaudichots, a mythic 1er Cru that used to be integrated into la Tâche Grand Cru until the classification of 1936.
With 10 hectares of holdings stretching from Vosne Romanée, Flagey Echezeaux, Vougeot to Nuits St Georges, including Morey St Denis recently, Regis Forey has excellent material to work with. He also makes a 1er Cru quality Vosne Romanee Village out of several lieux-dits parcels (Chalandins, Quartiers de Nuits and Hautes Maizieres) adjoining the Grands Crus of Clos de Vougeot and Echezeaux.
