Neal Martin, December 2014,
The 2013 Chambolle-Musigny Village, which is being matured in 20% new oak, has a slightly purer bouquet than the Clos Sorbe '13 at this nascent point, but there does appear to be more volume and florality. The palate is a little gassy at the moment but there is clearly good acidity here and plenty of tart cherry fruit toward the tensile finish. Very fine. Drink: 2017 - 2026

(from les Mombies). A slightly more elegant nose features notes of assorted red berry fruit aromas along with hints of spice, plum and earth. There is really lovely detail to the lightly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess good volume on the dusty, firm, balanced and mouth coating finish. Recommended. Drink 2019+
Sarah Marsh, November 2014,
Very pretty indeed. Delicate rose petal fruit with fine acidity. This is a lively energy. Bright on the finish. The vines are 90 years old and has a certain intensity and delicacy, which defies its origins. This is from Mombies, which is not the best place, but it is lovely. Score 16.25 From 2017
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.
