Didier Fornerol Côte de Nuits-Village Blanc is a barrel-aged white wine made by Didier Fornerol with the Chardonnay variety in the AOC Côte de Nuits-Village/Côte-d'Or, in Burgundy (France).
Didier Fornerol retired from running the Domaine de l'Arlot winery in 1999 to manage the 6 hectares of family vineyards that he owns in the town of Corgoloin, in the Burgundy region. He makes wines with a touch of magic and soul. Working alongside the prestigious Jean-Pierre de Smet, he prioritises cluster fermentation and precision work in the winery.
Didier Fornerol Côte de Nuits-Village Blanc comes from a 0.80 hectare plot. These are strains with an average age of fifteen years old and cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture. Only minimal amounts of synthetic treatment products are used when necessary and the harvest is carried out manually.
In the winery, the grapes are not destemmed and the must ferments at a low temperature for three months. Didier Fornerol Côte de Nuits-Village Blanc then ages for 12-months in barrels, only around 20% of which are new.
Didier Fornerol Côte de Nuits-Village Blanc is an excellent example of old school of Burgundy at its best. Delicious Burgundy creaminess.
