Carefully selected from vineyards spread over the 3 terroirs of the appellation, Les Belles Vignes delights with its precision and its regularity. Domaine Fournier Père et Fils attaches the utmost importance to perfection in the vineyard and at the winery. Made with great care and attention to detail, Les Belles Vignes represents the best alliance of the three terroirs.
The nose is sustained and asserted on lemony aromas accompanied by blackcurrant bud notes. The first sensations in the palate reveal a subtle and rich aromatic array, with a refined and silky lemon-sorbet texture.
Focused and intense gooseberry, lemon rind, flint and chalk on the nose, showing both ripeness and zing. I love the chalky texture and the intensity here, which augments through the the long, mineral finish.
