DOMAINE JEAN FÉRY & FILS is a family-run winery located in the beautiful village of Échevronne between Beaune and Nuits-Saint- Georges. The vineyards span over 14 hectares (34 acres) from the north to the south of Burgundy in famous appellations.
Jean-Louis took over his parents'estate in 1988 and made his childhood dream come true: providing the family estate with the means to develop further by performing the necessary construction work and investments while purchasing new vineyards. He now dedicates all his time to the vineyards. The vineyards are farmed according the principles of organic farming (they have been certified by ECOCERT since 2011), which requires a great deal of dedication and physical labor. Jean-Louis organizes the work of the laborers in every plot of the estate all year long. His unwavering love for Burgundy’s terroirs leads him to constantly acquire new vineyards in order to enrich the estate’s range of growing areas... and to give everyone pleasure...
The estate is now in the hands of Jean-Louis’s sons, Frédéric and Laurent Féry.
DOMAINE JEAN FÉRY & FILS manages vineyards in many different villages in Burgundy, representing a genuine mosaic of climats over a surface of 14 hectares (34 acres).
Origin Of The Name
Etymologically, “Corton” signifies “curtis d’Otton” (the domaine of Otto).
Classification and situation
Corton is the only red Grand Cru of the Côte de Beaune. The parcel of Domaine Féry is found in the commune of Aloxe-Corton, at the lieu-dit “Les Chaumes” which owes its name to poor lands often left as pasture; not heavy enough to produce rich agriculture, they are on the other hand particularly favourable to the vine which must plunge its roots deeply to find nourishment and thus express all the characteristics of its terroir.
Character and personality
Cortons are reputed since the XVIIIth Century and known to travel easily and to keep for a long time. In 1855, in his famous Histoire et Statistique de la Vigne et des Grands vins de la Côte d’Or (History and Statistics of the Vines and Great Wines of the Côte d’Or), Doctor Lavalle specified that they need to be kept a few years before tasting; they then are revealed as «frank and mellow » with « a bouquet of remarkable finesse, while conserving body and warmth... Perfect wines, worthy of being offered to the most refined gourmets and served at the most solemn of occasions”. And he distinguishes Corton les Chaumes amongst the “outstanding” climates of Corton.
Tasting between 5 and 25 years depending on specific vintage and personal taste.
This exceptional red wine from Burgundy is a very fine vintage which will be at its peak in 5 to 8 years from 2014. As it ages, it will rounded off even more while keeping its beautiful structure and explosive aromas on the palate.
The aroma remains dominated by aromas of blackcurrant and cherry, but aromas of leather and truffle will begin to emerge as it ages.
This Corton Grand cru from Jean Fery remains a very great wine to keep that you can age in your cellar, but it is already ready to drink.
Culinary Recommendation: To serve 15 C - 16 C. Good match with a Tournedos Rossini, a filet of pork with mustard and mushrooms, Rib of beef with herb butter, a sauté of veal Marengo but also a loin of braised pork, a roast duck with cabbage.
