Despite being established in 1840, Domaine Forey did not start bottling their own wines until the joining of Regis Forey in the early 1980s. The Domaine owns vineyards in Vosne-Romanee as well as holdings in neighbouring villages, from Morey-St-Denis to Nuits-St-Georges. Among their 1.8 hectares of holdings in Vosne-Romanee, there is a 0.30ha parcel of Les Gaudichots 1er Cru which borders the world-famous La Tache Grand Cru. Due to its exceptional terroir being in close proximity to La Tache and its much lower price point, Les Gaudichots has gained a lot of attention in recent years. The vineyard's history is rather complicated having many owners over the years which each have fought to get ownership of the neighbouring La Tache, and in 1932, a compromise was found and some of the original Gaudichots vineyards was annexed to La Tache. Therefore, there are only three small sections of Les Gaudichots that remain, and are divided among six owners such as Domaine Forey and Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, but none possess more than a quarter of a hectare. Domaine Forey is the only one of the few owners that farms and bottles wines from this parcel. Some other producers that bottles wines from here are Marchand de Gramont, DRC (that uses the grapes for their Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru) and Dujac (that uses the grapes for their Malconsorts), hence Domaine Forey is the very few places where you can taste this particular Premier Cru that situates so closely to La Tache at a huge fraction of the price (less than 10% of a La Tache!). However, due to their size of ownership, production of this wine is extremely limited.
That being said, we are extremely pleased to be able to secure 6 bottles each of the Vosne-Romanee Les Gaudichots 1er Cru from the 2018 vintage in standard and magnum size bottles for your consideration today. The 2018 Forey Gaudichots was scored with 92pts by Allen Meadows who commented that this is "the most floral-infused wine in the range" and has a "complex finale". Expected to arrive in just 1 week, this is an opportunity not to be missed! -

This is the most floral-infused wine in the range with hints of violet, lavender, rose petal and acacia adding real breadth to the overtly spicy dark berry fruit aromas. There is a bit more volume to the equally stony and muscular flavors that evidence a bit more power on the lingering, palate coating and complex finale where hints of both mocha and warmth emerge. I would again make the observation that this is very good though it's not typical.
Subject to final confirmation.
