Vosne-Romanée ‘les Gaudichots’

Domaine Forey has a long history in the Côte-de-Nuits. It was founded in 1840 by the great-grandfather of the current winemaker Régis Forey.

The domain is right next to Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and has some exceptional parcels of Pinot Noir in the grand cru vineyard Echezeaux, but also in the premier crus 'les Petits Monts' and 'les Gaudichots' - both located in Vosne-Romanée.

The latter is also called the 'little brother' of the famous 'la Tâche' grand cru, because of the intertwined history of these vineyards: after 1936, part of the yield of 'les Gaudichots' was absorbed by 'la Tâche '. Régis owns about 0.30 hectares of 'les Gaudichots' and produces a masculine style of wines, focused on concentration and depth.

The wines therefore need some time in the cellar to get ready to drink.

“[…] the mouthfeel of the larger-scaled flavors is positively gorgeous thanks to the abundant dry extract that buffers the moderately firm tannins shaping the sophisticated finish. This saliva-inducing effort already possesses excellent depth and persistent and more should develop in due course.” —(92-94)/100, Allen Meadows, Burghound
