Goedhuis, December 2012
An absolute beauty, this has all the finesse and succulence that all Chambolle should have. Brimming with pure raspberry fruit flavours, this is a beautifully clean style with gentle sweet fruit flavours and silky tannins. A glorious Chambolle.
Burghound, January 2013,
An ultra-elegant and pure nose of cool red pinot fruit laced with discreet hints of wet stone that are also reflected by the lacey, detailed and focused middle weight flavors. There is a natural sweetness on the balanced and persistent finish and overall, this is very Chambolle in basic texture and character. Drink 2016+
Jancis Robinson, January 2013,
From a lieu-dit (Les Monts Bies?) near the RN74. 80- to 90-year-old vines on quite clayey soil. Bright cherry colour. Very sweet fruit. Very expressive and pretty. Masses of fruit. Very explosive, but definitely dry on the finish. Still chewy. Drink 2015-2025
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.
