International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92($114) Good medium red. Red raspberry, smoky minerality and a whiff of crushed rocks on the inviting nose. Dense, ripe and impressively rich, with the rocky quality carrying through in the mouth and leavening the wine's impression of glyceral sweetness. Wonderfully round, broad wine with a very long, ripely tannic, building finish.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2010
Burghound | Rating: 92Here the nose is also very Gevrey in character with an intensely earthy nose of wild red berry fruit aromas liberally sprinkled with jerky, underbrush and a pungent iron-like element that can also be found on the sleekly muscled flavors, all wrapped in a long, sappy and delicious finish. This should benefit from 6 to 8 years of cellar time.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2009
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Sweet and a little toasty on the nose. Again fragrant, so appetising. Firmer and darker on the palate. Good grip but tannins are fine and rounded. (JH)Author: Julia Harding MW
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.
