  • Neal Martin, January 2019, Score: 93-95

    The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has a finely chiseled, precise bouquet with perfumed red cherry and crushed strawberry scents loaded with minerals. This is one of the most transparent Clos Saint-Jacques that I have tasted from Fourrier. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe tannins on the entry. This is very focused, maybe a little leaner than the 2015 (recently tasted) but with a scintillating finish of white pepper-tinged red fruit that lingers in the mouth for 45 seconds. Superb. [Readers should note that this may include part of the cuvée currently being matured in amphora. Trials will begin in early 2019 to assess whether that will be done - Jean-Marie Fourrier seemed 50/50 at the time of my visit.] 2023 - 2045

  • Burghound, January 2019, Score: 91-94

    A more elegant and spicier nose consists of red and dark currant aromas laced with a plenitude of spice and floral whiffs. The super-sleek, intense and gorgeously textured medium weight flavors that are penetratingly mineral-driven display excellent depth and persistence. With all of those attributes duly noted, at this stage at least this is not necessarily more interesting than the Combe aux Moines though that of course could well change by the time these both arrive at their full maturities.

  • Wine Advocate, January 2019, Score: 93-95

    The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques is irresistible, offering up a deep and complex bouquet in which notes of red berries, cassis and forest floor mingle with nuances of cedar wood, grilled meat and smoke. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, beautifully complete and multidimensional, with extraordinarily satiny, supple tannins, juicy acids and a long, lingering finish. This may not prove to be the longest-lived Clos Saint-Jacques Jean-Marie has produced in his career, but in terms of sheer charm and sensory appeal it will be impossible to fault. Fifteen barrels were produced.

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.Read less

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.
