The Fournier family has lived in the village of Marsannay since the 17th century. In 1962, Jean Fournier joined the ranks of Burgundy wine producers. In 2003, his son Laurent took over the reins of the domaine. He obtained organic farming certification in 2008. This passionate winemaker ensures that each wine expresses all the finesse of the terroir. Domaine Jean Fournier was awarded its first star in the Guide Vert in 2022. In the same year, it was listed as one of the "Coup de Coeur" wines in the Guide Hachette des Vins.
