Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, January 2011

    Spicy with a noticeably richer palate that is further fleshed out with zingy fruit and subtle meaty and earthy tones. Though its dense fruit centre is a bit compounded at the moment, its layers are given a bit of lift with its innate minerality and salty tang finish.

    Score: 92-94

    Sample prepared by Jean-Marie at the Domaine. This has a very fragrant, pure bouquet with a sense of weightlessness one does no often find in the 2009 vintage. Pure fresh strawberry, a touch of apricot and even a hint of quince. Great lift and definition. The palate is very fresh and vibrant on the entry with a very firm structure. The fruit is a little closed down at the moment, a little severe towards the finish but there is great persistency and “breadth” to this Cherbaudes.

  • BURG

    Score: 90-92

    Moderate reduction dominates the nose at present but the cool, reserved and understated medium-bodied flavors possess excellent detail as well as fine richness on the lightly mineral-driven finish. This exudes a fine balance and while the flavor profile is very Gevrey, there is nounderlying rusticity.

    Sourced from rocky soils where “nothing grows” according to Jean-Marie Fourrier,this is silky and violet-scented with delicate fruit flavours, a touch of aniseed and finetannins.

Producer

Domaine Fourrier

Jean-Marie Fourrier took over his family domaine in 1994 and has attacked every vintage with dynamic determination and ambition, building the reputation of the estate with astute viticulture and fanatical winemaking. He had learned from the best, most notably the late Henri Jayer of Vosne Romanée and Domaine Drouhin in the Willamette Valley in Oregon with whom he did his formative training. He is a keen participant in the growing trend towards minimal intervention in the vineyard and winery. The domaine has a remarkable array of very old vines, many having been planted between the wars. The Fourrier wines are pure and balanced.

Region

Gevrey-Chambertin

The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.
