Tasting Notes

    The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Goulots 1er Cru has a perfumed bouquet with scents of kirsch, Morello cherries, orange blossom and light cassis aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe black cherry and boysenberry fruit, quite firm in terms of grip with a little rigidity on the finish that should mellow by the time this is bottled. I like the energy here, but it will probably require four or five years in bottle. 2023 - 2039

    An exceptionally pretty and fresh nose blends notes of red currant, earth, floral and a shading of the sauvage. Consistent with the nose, there is fine freshness and verve to the intense and relatively finely detailed flavors that are also on the lighter side though there is fine authority to the tightly wound, saline and focused finale. This too will need at least a few years to flesh out and add a bit more depth. Drink 2027+

    Wine Advocate, January 2019,
    Score: 91-93

    Aromas of sweet cherries, currant leaf, candied peel, rose petal and strawberries—subtly framed by a delicate touch of wood—introduce the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Goulots, a medium to full-bodied, tangy wine with fine, chalky tannins and a more tensile, distinctively mineral profile. Fourrier notes that this premier cru was dynamited in the 1950s to prepare it for planting.

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.
