Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2021,
    Score: 91-93

    An exuberantly fresh nose offers relatively high-toned notes of wild red cherry, pomegranate and currant that are liberally laced with earth, spice and discreet oak hints. There is once again good vibrancy to the generously proportioned and fleshy medium-bodied flavors that display fine power and plenty of minerality on the youthfully austere finale that is also very clearly built-to-age. Swee spot Outstanding

  • JAM

    Jasper Morris MW, Janaury 2020,
    Score: 96-99

    Rich dense purple. The nose is fabulous and intriguing because on the one hand is skilled winemaking and the feel of a sunny, ripe vintage. On the other, the natural pure classy character of the vineyard is clearly there to see. Certainly the fruit is ripe and there are some black notes at the finish, with a balanced little tingle of acidity, even a saline note. Very long fine 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

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.
