5th - 10th March
Eric Forest – Domaine Forest
Eric is a star vigneron, based in the village of Vergisson, and currently has 4.8 hectares of vines planted between 1930 and 1979. He has inherited a great knowledge of nature and biodynamics from his grandfather and this has been a major influence in his approach to viticulture and winemaking. Five exclusive vintages of Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran, and Macon-Vergisson are produced on plots of vines planted between 1930 and 1979. These small quantity wines are characterised by great precision of flavour and truly capture the area they are produced.
Monday & Tuesday 6.00 – 7.30 pm
Regis Forey – Domaine Forey
This small but outstanding Domaine was created in 1840 by the great-grandfather of Régis Forey, the current propriétaire. The 1987 vintage marked the entry of Régis into the Domaine on a full-time basis and he became fully responsible for all aspects of production and winemaking with the 1989 vintage. In contrast to the wines of his father, who produced seductive wines of finesse and delicacy, Régis expresses a more masculine personality as his wines show exceptional concentration and depth.
The Forey Domaine now holds about 10 hectares of vineyards; 5 as propriétaire and 5 through the systems of fermage and metayage. The primary family holdings are in Nuits Saint Georges, Vosne-Romanée and Flagey-Echezeaux in Burgundy. With the recent additions, the Domaine extends its reach into the villages of Vougeot and Morey Saint Denis, as well.
Wednesday & Thursday 6.00 – 7.30 pm
