    The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Gruenchers 1er Cru has an intriguing bouquet with black cherries, sous-bois and light curry leaf aromas drifting from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe tannin, fine grip, clearly one of the more saline 2017 from Fourrier this year with a brisk and focused finish. Excellent. 2022 - 2038

    Score: 87-89

    The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Gruenchers may have been out of sorts when I tasted it, but it appeared to be the one wine in the portfolio that lacked a bit of concentration and depth. While its bouquet of rose petal, citrus rind and Griotte cherry is very attractive, the wine is somewhat fluid, with tangy acids and a detailed, stony finish, but missing some flesh and intensity. Having been frosted in 2016, my suspicion is that the vines yielded a bit too generously this year.

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

Chambolle-Musigny

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.
