January 14, 2014- today, we had a very interesting experience. We tasted with 2 tremendous producers making wines in the opposite sides of Burgundy. Damien Colin from Domaine Marc Colin greeted at his winery in the town of Gamay. Damien is one of 4 children of Marc Colin, 3 of which are involved in the winery. They specialize in wines of the Côtes de Beaune. We tasted through a range of St Aubin and Chassagne Montrachets. Each wine displayed nervy minerality and a gorgeous weight.

Next, we made the trek up to Marsannay to meet with Domaine Jean Fournier. Laurent, the current generation and winemaker, led us through a range of Côted de Nuits wines, focusing on Marsannay for the reds, and a unique selection of more historic whites, including Aligote, Pinot Blanc, and of course, Chardonnay. Fournier’s whites showed fresh. Delicious fruit, while the reds had power, life, and longevity.
