Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

Medium red. Perfumed aromas of raspberry, dried rose, smoke and pepper. Deep, dry and intense on the palate, with compelling inner-mouth perfume to the raspberry and orange zest flavors. The wine's exhilarating sugar/acid balance and peppery lift give the very long, savory finish outstanding verve. Tannins are utterly suave.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91-94

The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St. Jacques comes across as quite feminine in this vintage. Graphite, dark red berries, plums and licorice are all woven together gracefully in this expressive, impeccable wine. The tannins show a satin-like finesse that is striking.

Burghound | Rating: 93

This is also unusually expressive at this early stage with wonderfully layered aromas of floral nuances, raspberry, cherry, plum, stone and earth. There is excellent volume and richness to the strikingly well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that ooze a fine minerality on the refined, mouth coating and explosively long finish. This faultlessly well-balanced wine should age for years if desired though be approachable after a decade. Be sure to decant this as the gas is apparent.

About This Producer

Domaine Fourrier (previously known as Pernot-Fourrier) has a history in Gevrey Chambertin extending back over four generations. One of the first domaines to directly export its wine to the USA, it is also one of the most wealthy estates in the village, with holdings throughout the area's most famous appellations.

The Domaine owns 9 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 50-70 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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
