    ($95) Deep red-ruby. Highly nuanced nose hints at cherry, minerals and smoke. Suave on entry, then silky and wonderfully sweet, but less showy today than the Clos Saint-Jacques. Seems rather youthfully unevolved on the back half, and dominated by its firm structure. But the wine density and subtle, building length suggests that it will eventually surpass the Clos Saint-Jacques.

    Very sweet, very sappy fruit laced with sweet cherry notes. The flavors deliver intensely sappy pinot essence and superb elegance and a slightly warm though long finish. This wine delivers grand cru finesse and complexity but not the density. This is a gorgeous wine whose only shortcoming is a bit of missing concentration.

  • The domaine owns nine hectares of vineyards in the communes of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis and Chambolle-Musigny, ranging from village to grand cru level. Chemical fertilizers are not used and treatments to combat fungus and insects are applied only when absolutely necessary on the vines, which average between 50 to 70 years old. Achieving natural balance between yield and vine growth as a function of each season's growing conditions is Fourrier's key objective.

    Of note, Fourrier's labels often use the anachronistic and somewhat unusual labeling of "Vieille Vigne" (in the singular form) as opposed to the more common plural.
