Domaine Fourrier Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2014

195.00

Pinot Noir

“The Domaine Fourrier owns 9 hectares of vineyards spread amongst the communes of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny and Vougeot. The holdings are scattered up and down the slopes and range from village to Grand Cru level. Included among the holdings are important parts of “Clos St. Jacques” and “Combes Aux Moines” as well as a small but valuable slice of Griottes Chambertin. The impeccably tended vineyards are composed of vines of an average age between 50 and 70 years old. Intervening as little as possible in order to allow the vines, the terroir and the vintage to express themselves, is the basis of  their winemaking philosophy. No more than 20% new oak is used in order to preserve the purity of the fruit and the personality of each wine. They like to leave the wines on the fine lees until bottling which usually occurs 18 to 20 months after harvest. They bottle, in some cases straight from the cask, without fining or filtering the wines,

What ends up in the glass is a pure expression of terroir with as little interference as possible by the winemaker. Domaine Fourrier’s wines possess superb balance, enchanting elegance, finesse and complexity.” (madrose.com).

About This Wine...

“North of village, bottom of Combe du Bas, planted 1928. 10,000 vines/ha. This came from his father. Coincidence that it was planted same year as the Aux Échezeaux from his mother. Mid to light blueish crimson. Quite sweet and grainy. Lots of substance and pzazz with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Drink 2018 – 2028.”

Jancis Robinson 2015

 

“There is good freshness and verve to the more intense, mineral-driven and muscular flavors that possess a sleek mouth feel thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins. I very much like the overall depth as well as the fine persistence on the well-balanced finish. Recommended. Drink: 2022+.”
