You don't want to miss this!

 

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair winemaker Laurence Ollivier (nee Fougeray) back to Australia. Laurence works with her husband Patrice Ollivier to produce a range of wines from some very interesting vineyards in the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits.

 

“Most famous for their Bonnes-Mares and their ‘Clos Marion’, the family business of Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair was founded about 1979 when Jean-Louis Fougeray, the father of the current owners, a man who by day worked in administration and by night tending his vines, made his very first cuvée. It was from a quarter hectare of Marsannay vines – in the family since 1972 – this was the start for Domaine Fougeray.” The Burgundy Report

 

Today, the domaine is somewhat larger and continues to expand its holdings with new acquisitions.

 

The Domaine has very kindly supplied a wonderful selection of wines for a dinner. In fact we have so many we had to come up with a novel idea for this event.

 

So what we are going to do is a little tasting before the main dinner. That will provide the opportunity to meet Laurence and taste some of the new 2017's which were bottled just in time to ship to us.

 

The format for the evening will be...

 

7pm sharp meet Laurence and 2017 Reds tasting. The wines...

 

Marsanny Les Favieres 2017

Fixin Clos Marion 2017

Savigny Les Beaune Les Gollardes 2017

Gevrey Chambertin Les Seuvrees 2017 

 

7.45pm Dinner featuring 13 wines, mostly back vintages from Magnum

 

We start with 2 new whites from the 2017 vintage.

 

Then we proceed onto a delightful array of back vintages, all in magnum, very generously supplied by the domaine.

 

We're going to complete the dinner with a selection from the latest 2016 vintage from the domaine including their very special Bonnes-Mares 2016. And as a monumental treat Laurence and Patrice have supplied a Magnum of the Bonnes-Mares 2013 for everyone to enjoy. So generous!

 

For any Burgundy lover this is a great opportunity to not only explore the domaine but to see wines from a number of vintages not usually available. 

 

Whilst there are many interesting wines I do anticipate that the highlight will be the mighty Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru. This Bonnes-Mares is particularly interesting as it is the only wine bottled from the small parcel of this Grand Cru within Morey-St-Denis.

 

As the domaine has graciously provided many of the the wines free of charge the cost of this dinner is extraordinarily reasonable. The dinner will be at Ocha in Hawthorn.
