Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2017

    Cherbaudes is situated beside two fine grands crus, Chapelle and Mazis Chambertin. This has a lovely, bright, fruit character, full of loganberries and summer fruits. A generous wine which shows great promise.

    Score: 90-92

    Moderate wood influence can be found on the overtly sauvage-inflected red currant, plum and earth-scented nose. The supple and round medium-bodied flavors possess a velvet-textured mid-palate that is really quite seductive though the natural muscle of a Gevrey 1er shows up on the saline and ever-so-mildly rustic finale. This quality effort is firm enough to require at least 5+ years of cellaring and it will need at least a decade to arrive at its apogee. Drink: 2026+

    Score: 90-92

    Good bright red. Distinctly dark aromas of black cherry, licorice and menthol convey a medicinal cast. Then fine-grained, suave and sweet, with flavors of black cherry, blackberry and licorice pastille. Considering the wine's medicinal coolness, this midweight is also quite ripe. Finishes with harmonious tannins that saturate the tongue and build. Lovely subtle length; spreads out subtly to saturate the palate.

    Fourrier’s old vines in Cherbaudes, just below the Clos de Bèze, were planted in 1928, and they have produced one of the highlights of the range in 2016. Aromas of plum, cherry, forest floor and grilled meat are framed by a creamy application of new oak, introducing a full-bodied, concentrated wine with an excellent chassis of rich tannins and good depth at the core. Drink 2024-2045

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.
