2017 Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair Fixin Village en Côte de Nuits Blanc
Fougeray de Beauclair is located in the most northern village of the Côte d'Or from the famous Appelation Fixin. This appellation Fixin covers about 100 hectares of vineyard and is located just north of Gevrey-Chambertin with only top wines. The wine production on this 18 ha domain is led by Patrice Ollivier from Provence and his wife Laurence Fougeray. Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair is one of the famous domains from the small Fixin appellation. The Village and Côte de Nuits, Blanc is a very balanced top white burgundy with beautiful aromas of citrus, white flowers and the typical minerality of Fougeray. This delicious white Burgundy has a nice acidity that is perfectly balanced with the fruit.
It was his grandfather Louis, one of the predecessors of Marsannay Rosé, who passed on his love of wine to Jean Louis FOUGERAY in 1952. In 1978, the estate was created through the purchase and rental of vineyards in prestigious Burgundian appellations of the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune: Bonnes Mares Grand Cru, Clos Marion, Les "Saint Jacques", Vosne Romanée, Gevrey Chambertin, Puligny Montrachet. Today Patrice and Laurence Ollivier manage the estate and 15 hectares of vineyard. They make it a point of honor to make quality wines, allowing the various appellations to quickly position themselves at the level of the largest Burgundian estates. This family business has turned its organization into a major asset, surrounded by a close-knit and competent team, contributing to a family dimension.
The wines are now represented on 4 continents. Of these twenty-three different crus in Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, Patrice has decided to stop using fertilizers to guarantee the freshness and authenticity of these products. The harvest is done manually and the grapes are carefully selected and sorted to ensure quality wines.
