International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92($104) Deep red. A bit reduced on the nose, hinting at blackberry, violet and minerals. Then big, broad and seamless in the mouth, with highly concentrated black fruit and spice flavors. Shows more texture than sweetness today, but the bound-up CO2 is currently making this very dense wine difficult to taste. This will require considerable aging and should be outstanding.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2006
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Rich and exotic and winning. Lots of alcohol and sweetness. A little brutal on the finish but there's no shortage of hedonistic appeal. Slight hint of coffee - something a little bit dry. (JR)Author: Jancis Robinson
Burghound | Rating: 90This is almost as complex and aromatically pure as the '04 with notes of game, crushed herb and minerals that introduce much more structured and intense medium full flavors of obvious class and grace. This is quite an elegant wine with lovely harmony and strikingly good balance. This should age well yet the richness of the material will permit it to drink well young too. A terrific '03.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2006

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.
