Goedhuis, November 2009
Perfumed with sweet brown sugar, red currant and cherries, this medium-bodied Chambolle plays ona sweet/sour element that makes it particularly attractive and moreish. Lipsmackingly good.
Burghound, January 2010,
A classic Chambolle nose of equally pure, airy and high-toned red berry fruit complements the lacy, silky and even delicate flavors that firm up on the attractively lingering finish. Lovely and understated. Drink: 2012+.
Anthony Rose, January 2010,
Fine fresh sweet cherryish pinot nose, lovely juicy supple pinot fruit in mulberry spectrum of juiciness with a plum sweetness in the middle and very fresh acidity, nicely complemented by touch of rounding oak.
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.
The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
