Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair
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. That which is not good enough is sold to cooperatives.
