International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88($63) Medium red. Aromas of smoke, mocha, brown spices, wild herbs and earth. Fat, broad and sweet, showing more soil tones, minerals and wild herbs than primary fruit. Finishes with fairly serious dusty tannins.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2010
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Lifted red fruit, juicy and intense pure bright fruit but more than that. A firm savoury spiced foundation and real intensity and depth. (JH)Author: Julia Harding MW
Burghound | Rating: 89This is also moderately reduced that renders the nose difficult to evaluate though the fresh and energetic medium-bodied flavors that are supple, round and delicious with a serious, intense and detailed finish that offer excellent persistence for a wine of this level. A quality villages.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2009
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.
