    ($72) Good full medium red. Much wilder on the nose than the Echezeaux, offering plum, raspberry, truffle, game and underbrush. Fat, silky and sweet, with a distinctly plump and seamless texture. Reminded me of a late-harvest wine with freshness, thanks to its underlying spine. Finishes long and sweet.

    A trace of reduction does not block the relatively high-toned red berry fruit aromas that are also very Gevrey in basic character with ample animale, warm earth and underbrush nuances, all of which continue onto the supple, delicious and only moderately rustic flavors that coat the palate with extract. This is very well balanced and offers just a bit more length. This too is definitely worth a look.

    The Fourrier 2007 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is strawberry- and meat stock-scented; bright and juicy, as well as subtly silken in a very welcoming way, and finishes with enough intimation of carnal, forest floor and chalk to qualify as complex. It has the sort of vintage charm that I see as fragile and simply unlikely to last for many years, so I would opt for enjoying this over the next 3-4.

  • 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.

    Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
