In recent vintages Régis Forey has begun ageing a portion of his Vosne village wine in tronconic wood foudres, shaped similarly to the Menhir standing stones that stretch across Celtic areas of Europe. In today’s warming climate, Burgundy’s average cellar
temperatures are higher than in eras past, and vessels such as these counteract the accelerated development these warmer cellars foster. Tasting the Jarre, and Menhir cuvées alongside the village Vosne leads to fascinating contrasts.
Fermentation: After partial destemming (c. 60%) and a 3-4
day cold soak, wine ferments spontaneously in stainless-steel
tanks. Cuvaison lasts 22-26 days.
Élevage: 16-20 months in tronconic oak foudre
Fining and Filtration: Unfined and unfiltered
Sulfur: Applied only at bottling
