    The 2017 Vougeot Les Petits Vougeot 1er Cru has an odd fish oil tincture on the nose, a trait I actually quite like but it comes across a little strong at the moment in barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity, fleshy and generous with quite a smooth finish where that "fishy" trait ebbs into the background. I suspect that will disappear by the time this is bottled. 2022 - 2030

    A high-toned nose is also airy and pure with its mostly red berry fruit nose that reflects plenty of floral influence. The lilting, energetic and refined barely middle weight flavors exude a subtle minerality on the lingering and balanced finish. I like the sense of finesse but this is noticeably lighter.

    This cuvée is generally an elegant, red-fruited wine that nods to Chambolle, but—at least on this particular day—the 2017 Vougeot 1er Cru Les Petits Vougeot displays a surprisingly brooding bouquet of plums, cassis and smoked duck. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and tangy, with a good core of fruit and an attractively stony finish.

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

Vougeot

Unlike the other predominant Côte de Nuits appellations, Vougeot's main appellation is its onlygrand cru vineyard, Clos de Vougeot. It is by far the largest grand cru of the area totalling over 50 hectares with over 40 owners rumoured to own vines. As a result, its vineyards run from the flat, clay-dominated valley floor to the well-drained, venerated sloped hillsides suggesting that its quality ending on where it is grown. As a result, it is often the least valued of the grand crus and can offer excellent value, particularly in good vintages where ripeness has been attained.
