Fourrier BottlesDomaine Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2009 750ML ($179.95) $149 special, 1 bottle in stock now
Antonio Galloni 89+ points “The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny is delicate and a touch ethereal. Crushed flowers and red berries are among the aromas and flavors that emerge from this feminine, delicate wine. The Chambolle is open and totally expressive, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2024.”
Burghound 88-91 points “An ultra elegant, airy and cool red berry fruit nose that is very Chambolle in character leads to pure, detailed and mineral-inflected flavors that possess plenty of verve on the racy and delicious finish. I like the focus and underlying sense of tension.”

Domaine Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2010 750ML ($179.95) $149 special, 1 bottle in stock now
Antonio Galloni 88-91 points “The 2010 Chambolle-Musigny is sexy, juicy and radiant. Layers of expressive, supple red berries, flowers, licorice and spices flow across the palate in this elegant Chambolle. At present the wine is a bit reduced, but that is just a function of its never having been racked.”
Burghound 87-90 points “Mild reduction reduces the expressiveness but does not completely hide the pretty red pinot fruit aromas that lead to mineral-infused, precise, intense and admirably pure light to medium weight flavors that are the epitome of finesse, all wrapped in a mouth coating, balanced and long finish. This is very Chambolle in character.”

Domaine Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2014 750ML ($149.95) $119 special, 2 bottles in stock now
Burghound 87-90 points “A more elegant array is composed of dark currant, floral, underbrush and exotic tea scents. There is a lovely sense of energy to the delineated medium weight flavors that exhibit more evident minerality that is particularly apparent on the mildly austere finale where a hint of bitter cherry appears.”
Stephen Tanzer 88-90 points “Good dark red. Very pure aromas of red fruits and mint, plus a suggestion of metallic minerality. Even suppler than the Clos Sorbés, with inviting red fruit flavors complicated by a saline touch. Finishes with fairly easygoing tannins.”

Domaine Fourrier Clos Saint-Jacques, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 2008 750ML ($699.95) $599 special, 3 bottles in stock now
Antonio Galloni 96 points “The 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St. Jacques engages all of the senses with its cool, mineral-laced fruit and expressive bouquet. This shows marvelous tension and energy, not to mention fabulous overall balance. It could not be more different in style than the 2009 tasted alongside it. Both are fabulous, though. The 2008 is one of the more backward wines of the vintage and will require considerable patience.”

Domaine Fourrier Clos Saint-Jacques, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 2009 750ML ($599.95) $519 special, 1 bottle in stock now
Antonio Galloni 96 points “The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St. Jacques is a seamless beauty laced with sweet hard candy, perfumed cherries, kirsch and sweet spices. The sweetest and silkiest of tannins caress the palate from start to finish as this sublime Burgundy conquers all of the senses. The laser-like, pure finish is breathtaking.”
Stephen Tanzer-Vinous 94 points “Good bright medium red. Wild, musky aromas of strawberry, raspberry, minerals and game; quite explosive on the nose. Sweet, fat and savory, with the musky quality carrying through on the palate. Not particularly high-pitched or floral but offers terrific intensity of red berry and soil flavors. Fourrier believes that following three vintages with lower levels of phenolic maturity, many growers overextracted in 2009. Incidentally, he’s now confident about his labor-intensive system for sealing his bottles with wax and believes that a wine like this Clos Saint-Jacques should have no trouble aging for 20 years.”
Burghound 93 points “This storied terroir often produces one of the most elegant and sophisticated of all the 26 Gevrey 1ers with the gorgeously refined red berry fruit and floral nose suffused by an almost pungent minerality that continues onto the supple, fresh and vibrant medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent concentration and a stunning, even explosive if firmly structured finish. This is an intense wine of harmony and drive with everything it needs for a long life.”

Domaine Fourrier Clos Saint-Jacques, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 2014 750ML ($669.95) $599 special, 2 bottles in stock now
Stephen Tanzer-Vinous 94 points “Healthy medium red. Sexy, complex aromas of strawberry, crushed stone and rose petal convey a captivating combe coolness. Wonderfully concentrated and bright, combining classic 2014 salty minerality with superb fruit intensity. Boasts the kind of restrained generosity of fruit that reminds me of the ’99s in the early going. A compelling, saline vin de terroir but not a powerhouse. The long, rising finish features very suave tannins.”
Wine Advocate 93 points “Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Jean-Marie Fourrier’s 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St Jacques (labelled with “Vieilles Vignes”) has a very pure bouquet, almost coulis-like fruit, dark cherries intermingling with blueberry and light marmalade scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity, quite sensual in the mouth with good depth on the finish. Perhaps what it is missing is that peacock’s tail—it sort of ends in the wrong key. There is great potential here though not best in the (Clos Saint-Jacques) show this year. Like a television with its contrast turned up a bit too high when compared to its peers. Tasted September 2017.”
Burghound 92-94 points “Sweet Spot Outstanding. This is at once cooler and more elegant with its airy assortment of pure red and blue pinot fruit, floral, spice, earth and tea scents. There is fine intensity and excellent delineation to the pungently mineral-inflected and refined medium weight flavors where the sense of refinement is enhanced by the super fine-grained tannins, all wrapped in an explosively long and perfectly balanced finale. In a word, marvelous.”

Domaine Fourrier Clos Saint-Jacques, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 2016 750ML ($999.95) $599 special, 2 bottles in stock now
William Kelley – Wine Advocate 95 points “The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques is brilliant, unfurling in the glass with a multifaceted bouquet in which aromas of raspberries, orange rind and cassis mingle with nuances of peony, spice and subtle grilled meat. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and pure, with a deep, multidimensional mid-palate that’s framed by satiny tannins and juicy acids, concluding with a long, fragrant finish. The exquisite textural elegance that Fourrier routinely achieves with this site does not conceal the wine’s underlying power and concentration.”
John Gilman 94 points “With the shortened crop in Clos St. Jacques, there is no Cuvée Centennaire here this year, just a single, truly lovely bottling of this great vineyard. The nose is pure, nascently complex and very precise, offering up scents of red plums, cherries, gamebird, mustard seed, a complex base of soil, roses and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep full-bodied and classically structured, with a sappy core, excellent backend mineral drive, ripe tannins and a very long, vibrant and promising finish. 2030-2070.”
Neal Martin- Vinous 94 points “The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has a lucious slightly exotic nose that sports a metallic reduction. One hopes that it will dissipate with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, cranberry and red plum, touches of orange rind and marmalade developing towards the finish that is one of the spiciest among the five Clos Saint-Jacques this year. It just seems to take its foot off the accelerator pedal in the glass. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.”
Stephen Tanzer-Vinous 93-95 points “Bright dark red. Knockout ethereal nose combines raspberry, licorice, rose petal, lavender, wild mint and spices. Densely packed but juicy, suave and a bit youthfully imploded, conveying an almost magical impression of weightlessness. Cool and reserved but not at all hard, this fully ripe but reticent wine spreads out to saturate the palate, showing a lighter touch than the Combe Aux Moines. Displays a captivating restrained sweetness from start to long finish. As the lower part of his Clos Saint-Jacques parcel was frosted (production for this premier cru was cut by 30% in ’16), Fourrier chose not to make a separate Cuvée Centennaire.”
Burghound 91-94 points “Outstanding. Here too notes of wood toast and menthol are present on the more elegant array of red currant, spice and a lovely range of floral elements. The sleeker and more refined medium weight flavors possess an appealing sense of underlying tension while delivering outstanding length on the balanced finale. This needs to add depth to merit the top end of my predicted range but the natural class of a fine CSJ is evident. Note that this too will need at least a decade to arrive at its peak.”

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echezeaux Vieilles Vignes 2008 750ML ($149.95) $119 special, 4 bottles in stock now
David Schildknecht-Wine Advocate 89 points “Fourrier’s 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echezeaux (from nearly 90 year-old vines) is intensely scented with kirsch, herbs, and sea spray, which adumbrate its bright, saline, firm but not hard or angular palate impression. Strong cherry pit, stone, and charred meat notes lend this energetic but athletically lean and bright Gevrey a hint of austerity, but it has me salivating uncontrollably. For those who like the style and pair the wine creatively, this should give plenty of pleasure over at least the next 6-8 years, though as Fourrier is eager to concur with me, following the course of 2008s in bottle is bound to mean venturing into relatively uncharted territory.”
Burghound 87-90 points “An intensely, even pungently earthy nose of red and dark berry fruit is very much in keeping with the firm, precise and layered flavors that possess a lovely sense of relief and tension on the solidly long finish. This is very Gevrey in character and offers fine quality for a villages.”

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echezeaux Vieilles Vignes 2013 750ML ($149.95) $119 special, 5 bottles in stock now
Burghound 89-91 points – Outstanding Top Value “An expressive nose of relatively high-toned red currant, floral and warm earth scents precedes the equally refined and delineated middle weight flavors that culminate in a balanced, complex and beautifully persistent finish. This is notably finer than the old vines cuvée if not quite a long or concentrated. Still this is lovely and also worth your consideration as it should drink reasonably well young.”

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echezeaux Vieilles Vignes 2015 750ML ($149.95) $119 special, 2 bottles in stock now
Stephen Tanzer 89 points “Good medium red. Very ripe aromas of candied raspberry and spices. Densely packed, sweet and fleshy but juicy too, with its raspberry and saline mineral flavors complicated by leather and game nuances. Finishes with a serious dusting of tannins and very good length. A touch warm but I like this.”
Burghound 89-91 points “This is earthier still with its well-layered nose of cassis, humus and sauvage hints. There is excellent detail to the more obviously mineral-driven flavors that are a lovely combination of power and punch, all wrapped in a wonderfully refreshing, firm and well-balanced finale. Worth considering.”
Neal Martin-Wine Advocate 87-89 points “The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echézeaux has a well defined bouquet with red cherry and raspberry, demonstrating fine mineralité and tension. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin and good weight in the mouth, although it needs a little more substance and precision towards the finish, a bit more energy to come through.”

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echezeaux Vieilles Vignes 2016 750ML ($119.95) $99 special, 2 bottles in stock now
Stephen Tanzer 89-91 points “(these vines, originally planted in the 1930s, yielded 35 hectoliters per hectare in 2016): Moderately saturated medium red. Reticent aromas of black cherry and licorice, with a hint of rose petal. A step up in sweetness and plushness from the other Gevrey village wine, offering a distinctly silkier, creamier texture and a slightly roasted hint of strawberry preserves. This very harmonious wine finishes with suave, fully buffered tannins but decent acidity. Showing the ripe side of 2016.”
Burghound 87-89 points “Moderately generous wood frames the distinctly earthy and sauvage-inflected aromas of spicy dark berry fruit. The middle weight flavors possess a very supple and rounded mid-palate mouthfeel before culminating in a delicious finish where the wood found on the nose resurfaces. This appears to have enough density to eventually eat the wood treatment but it may require a few years to do so.”

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2008 750ML ($179.95) $149 special, 6 bottles in stock now
Antonio Galloni 90 points “The 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin is an utterly impeccable, refined wine graced with exquisite layers of intensely perfumed dark red fruit. This sensual, gorgeous Gevrey captures the essence of the vintage in its classy, pedigreed personality.”

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2009 750ML ($199.95) $179 special, 3 bottles in stock now
Antonio Galloni 92 points “The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin floats on the palate in its finessed, well-articulated fruit. Subtle and ethereal through to the finish, the wine captures the essence and nobility of Gevrey. With time in the glass the fruit turns darker and the wine puts on weight, showing tons of pedigree and dazzling overall harmony.”
Stephen Tanzer 91 points “Good deep red. Musky aroma of raspberry, blueberry, smoke, crushed rock and game. At once sweet and taut, with an impression of lift and energy rare for the vintage. Really lovely fruit here. Fourrier told me he liked the effect of elevage in mostly older casks in 2009. “More new oak would have speeded up the evolution of the wines,” he explained. “That would have required using more sulfur dioxide but we still would have lost fruit.””

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2010 750ML ($199.95) $179 special, 8 bottles in stock now
Stephen Tanzer 91 points “Good bright, full red. High-pitched aromas of tangy red and darker berries and rose petal, complemented by lower-toned earth and smoke notes. Boasts terrific volume for village wine: dense, salty and soil-driven, with raspberry fruit complicated by earth and minerals. Really stimulates the taste buds on the smooth, long, lightly saline finish. Terrific village wine.”
Antonio Galloni 90-92 points “The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is striking. Attractive floral aromatics meld into expressive fruit in this sweet, perfumed wine. Dark red cherries, freshly cut flowers, mint and hard candy wrap around the sensual, fragrant finish. This is a very classy showing. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.”
Burghound 89-91 points – Outstanding “This is also exceptionally fresh and complex and the composition of the aromas is much the same as the Aux Echézeaux except perhaps here they are ever-so-slightly more elegant. The textured, intense and solidly well-concentrated medium weight flavors possess real verve on the delineated, balanced and focused finish. This also is an excellent villages that is built to age and is also worthy of your consideration.”

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2012 750ML ($149.95) $119 special, 4 bottles in stock now
Stephen Tanzer 90 points “Bright medium red. Explosively ripe aromas of raspberry, redcurrant and dried flowers came across as almost roasted following Fourrier’s line-up of 2013 samples. Then sweet and lush on the palate, with superripe flavors of dried red fruits and flowers showing a bit less nuance than I recall finding a year ago. This large-scaled village wine finishes with substantial slightly rough tannins that call for a couple years of patience.”

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2014 750ML ($119.95) $89 special, 5 bottles in stock now
Stephen Tanzer 91 points “Moderately saturated medium red. Complex nose melds strawberry, flowers, game and mocha. Deeper than the Morey-Saint-Denis Clos Solon; brisk, salty and concentrated, offering considerable personality and sex appeal. This very sappy village wine shows excellent clarity and length, finishing with harmonious tannins.”
Neal Martin-Wine Advocate 90-92 points “The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has a pure and fragrant bouquet with red rose petals infusing the vivid red cherry and fresh strawberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, quite tight and reserved on the entry with a keen line of acidity, correct and linear towards the fresh finish that is uninteresting in giving much away at the moment. Afford this 3-4 years in bottle to get the most from it.”
Burghound 89-91 points – Outstanding “There is enough reduction to mask the fruit but 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.”

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2015 750ML ($149.95) $119 special, 6 bottles in stock now
Stephen Tanzer 89-92 points “(from the north side of the village; the Aux Echézeaux is from the extreme south side): Bright medium red. Red fruits, animal fur and game lifted by a floral element on the nose. Plush and seamless; a step up in thickness and suavity from the Aux Echézeaux, with its deep raspberry fruit complicated by a mineral component. Mouthfilling but not heavy, finishing quite long, with tannins totally supported by fruit.”
Burghound 89-92 points – Outstanding “Here the more reserved nose is compositionally similar to the Aux Echézeaux but it’s spicier. The succulent and fleshy medium-bodied flavors possess good mid-palate richness which contrasts markedly with the firm, serious and robust finale that displays a touch of rusticity. This recommended effort is also very good and very Gevrey.”
Neal Martin-Wine Advocate 89-91 points “The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes comes from several parcels around the appellation. I admire the bouquet here, very pretty with perfumed red cherries, crushed strawberry and subtle rose petal scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is supple in the mouth with good acidity, upfront fleshy red cherry and strawberry fruit with a pinch of white pepper completing the finish. Recommended.”

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2017 750ML ($119.95) $99 special, 7 bottles in stock now
Decanter 92 points “Vieille Vigne (always singular at Fourrier) is sourced from 12 different parcels, most of them on the better, western side of the route nationale. This is always a pleasure to drink, and the 2017 is no exception, with supple, scented, alluring red berry notes, some vanilla oak and a zesty finish.”
William Kelley-Wine Advocate 91 points “The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is showing beautifully in bottle, unwinding in the glass with scents of red cherries, raspberries, licorice, sweet soil tones and candied peel. Medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent, this Gevrey displays fine depth and concentration, its ample core of fruit underpinned by ripe, powdery tannins and lively acids.”

Domaine Fourrier Les Champeaux Vieilles Vignes, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 2017 750ML ($279.95) $229 special, 2 bottles in stock now
Decanter 94 points “Like many of the Fourrier holdings, this hails from the Brochon side of the village and shows corresponding zip and acidity. As ever, the 20% new oak is deftly handled, complementing the scented tobacco pouch and wild strawberry aromas and flavours.”

Domaine Fourrier Les Cherbaudes Vieilles Vignes, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 2017 750ML ($279.95) $219 special, 3 bottles in stock now
Decanter 96 points “Cherbaudes is located just below Mazis-Bas, where Jean-Marie Fourrier’s 0.67ha parcel was planted in 1940. This has the richness and density of a grand cru, so maybe its neighbour has influenced the quality of the wine by osmosis. It’s spicy, sweet and brambly with a fine, nuanced finish.”

Domaine Fourrier La Combe Aux Moines Vieilles Vignes, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 2017 750ML ($279.95) $229 special, 2 bottles in stock now
Decanter 96 points “Combe Aux Moines is something of a signature wine from Fourrier alongside his Clos-St-Jacques. Reflecting its elevated position, this is a bright, aromatic, wonderfully refreshing style with some ferrous notes and a smooth, balanced finish.”
William Kelley-Wine Advocate 93 points “The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Combe Aux Moines is also showing beautifully from bottle, revealing aromas of cherries, raspberries and cassis complemented by suggestions of rose petals and sweet forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent, it’s broad shouldered and attractively complete, but it also exemplifies the weightless charm that typifies the vintage at its best.”

Domaine Fourrier Les Goulots Vieilles Vignes, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 2016 750ML ($299.95) $219 special, 2 bottles in stock now
John Gilman 93 points “Normally we will taste Goulots ahead of Champeaux in the lineup chez Fourrier, but I am guessing that the idea was to show the two Gevrey premier crus that escaped frost damage first, followed by the crus higher up on the Combe de Lavaut, where yields were off by an average of thirty percent. Champeaux lies right below Goulots on the slope and the 2016 here is an outstanding wine in the making, delivering a fine nose of red and black cherries, dark chocolate, grilled meats, a lovely base of soil, a touch of fresh herbs, woodsmoke and spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a sappy core, excellent soil signature, fine-grained tannins and a long, vibrant and nascently complex finish. A beautiful bottle in the making. 2028-2060.”
Stephen Tanzer 91-93 points “Good bright-medium red. Tight, dark aromas of black fruits and licorice pastille lifted by a whiff of cranberry. Ripe and broad, but with terrific inner-mouth floral lift and a rocky pungency. Tannins are fully ripe and fine-grained. Offers a rather exhilarating–and uncommon–combination of cooler flavors and full phenolic ripeness. This wine comes from a very cool, east-facing site planted on rock, which had difficulty ripening its fruit prior to global warming. A tighter, more intellectual style than the Champeaux: Fourrier loves the Goulots with sushi, while he’d pair the Champeaux with a rib-eye steak.”
Burghound 90-92 points “Once again there is borderline generous wood influence surrounding the spicier and cooler mix of various red berries, earth and floral scents. As is typically the case, the mouthfeel of the middle weight flavors is both finer and more vibrant though without the same volume and power, all wrapped in a markedly mineral-driven finish. This should be approachable after 5-ish years of bottle age if a younger fruit profile is your preference.”

Domaine Fourrier Les Goulots Vieilles Vignes, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru 2017 750ML ($299.95) $219 special, 1 bottle in stock now
Decanter 96 points “Aromas of summer pudding and Turkish Delight waft from the glass on this delicious premier cru bottling. Facing east, this 0.34ha parcel was planted in 1966 and has yielded an elegant, ethereal, scented Pinot with impressive balance and focus.”

Domaine Fourrier Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieille Vigne 2009 750ML ($1,399.95) $1,199 special, 1 bottle in stock now
Antonio Galloni 96 points “The 2009 Griotte-Chambertin is a relatively delicate, ethereal wine with expressive aromatics and understated fruit. Deceptively medium in body, the Griotte needs time to flesh out a bit, but it is a stunner. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.”
Stephen Tanzer 94+ points “Medium red. Slightly high-toned aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, violet and licorice. The high-toned quality carries through in the mouth, where the sappy-sweet black and blue fruit flavors are complicated by saline soil tones. Less creamy than some of Fourrier’s 2009 premier crus, this very firmly structured, long wine will demand patience. The lovely lift on the back end suggests that it has the energy for a long evolution. Fourrier now gets all his corks from a single supplier in Corsica, who simply steams them and does not use a peroxide solution.”
Burghound 94 points “This is also intensely floral as well as quite elegant with a highly attractive sense of freshness to the high-toned red berry and wet stone suffused aromas. The seductively textured, concentrated and mouth coating flavors possess a taut muscularity on the refined, intense and hugely long finish where a discreet touch of wood surfaces. This should make for a seriously fine example of the appellation in a decade or so yet thanks for the ample dry extract, it should be enjoyable young if desired.”

Domaine Fourrier Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieille Vigne 2014 750ML ($899.95) $799 special, 1 bottle in stock now
Wine Advocate 94-96 points “The 2014 Griottes Chambertin Grand Cru has a very intense bouquet with maraschino, blueberry and violets blossoming in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe black fruit, blueberry and a hint of balsamic, leading to a quite a structured and dense finish that just needs a touch more finesse. I think that will develop with time. Superb.”
Stephen Tanzer 94+ points “Good medium red. Strawberry and rose petal on the nose. At once dense and brisk, displaying a penetrating quality to its seamless, fine-grained flavors of red fruits and orange zest. Wonderfully taut and energetic but also fine-grained and suave. Less saline today than the Clos Saint-Jacques but boasts terrific fruit and mineral extension on the long, savory finish.”

Domaine Fourrier Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieille Vigne 2015 750ML ($999.95) $899 special, 2 bottles in stock now
Stephen Tanzer 94-96 points “Good deep red. Dark and slightly wild on the nose but inexpressive today. Shows the added concentration and weight of the hot vintage but less of the coolness of the vineyards exposed to the Combe de Lavaut. Flavors of purple and black fruits and crushed rock hint at violet but can’t quite match the sheer floral éclat of the Clos Saint-Jacques. This wine had been racked more recently than most of the rest and was tighter as a result. Although it’s less harmonious today, its powerful spine of acids and tannins should ensure a long and graceful evolution in bottle.”

Domaine Fourrier Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieille Vigne 2016 750ML ($1,499.95) $1,199 special, 2 bottles in stock now
John Gilman 96 points “The 2016 Griotte-Chambertin from Domaine Fourrier is a great wine in the making. The bouquet is pure, sappy and quite expressive, but the palate is still on the primary side and the wine will deserve a fully twelve to fourteen years in the cellar to start to properly stir from hibernation. The nose is a superb blend of red and black cherries, gamebird, a very complex base of chalky soil tones, woodsmoke, spicy oak, mustard seed and a pungent topnote of roses. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and already quite velvety on the attack, with a sappy core, lovely transparency and grip, fine-grained tannins and a long, tangy, refined and laser-like focus. There will be plenty of temptation to drink this on the earlier side, unless it closes up significantly after bottling, but it would be crime to really touch a bottle before at least 2030! 2030-2100.”
Decanter 95 points “The Griotte is beautiful in 2016, the inherent elegance of the vineyard synthesising perfectly with Fourrier’s limpid style. Aromas of cherry, raspberry, rose petal and liquorice mingle with subtle nuances of rich soil, introducing a full-bodied, silky wine, its fine, chalky tannins cloaked in a deep and ample core of pure, glossy and succulent fruit. This should be very special with some bottle age.Drinking Window 2026 – 2050.”
Stephen Tanzer 92-95 points “Bright medium red. Light, lively scents of raspberry, rose petal, minerals, menthol and black pepper, with some riper earth and truffle notes lurking. Plush, sweet and fine-grained, showing a light touch but remaining quite closed in the mouth. Shows lovely floral and mineral nuances but this very suave wine will need time in bottle to come alive and express itself. Finishes with serious dusty tannins and less sweetness than Fourrier’s négociant Chambertin.”
Burghound 92-94 points “(from a .26 ha parcel planted in 1928). An elegant, pure and beautifully complex blend of cool red berries, rose petal and spice are trimmed in an all-but-invisible application of wood. There is the same lovely sense of underlying tension suffusing the sleekly muscular middle weight plus flavors that exude a subtle minerality onto the dusty, balanced and impressively persistent finish. This wine usually matures slowly and while it’s not firm to the point of youthful austerity, the tannic spine is sufficiently tightly wound to make clear that this needs patience. 2028+.”

Domaine Fourrier Morey-Saint-Denis Clos Solon Vieilles Vignes 2008 750ML ($179.95) $149 special, 1 bottle in stock now
Stephen Tanzer 90 points “Good medium red. Aromas of black cherry, mocha, minerals and licorice. Dense, supple and smooth, with savory notes of pepper and smoke. Nicely tactile finish displays suave tannins and saline soil tones. I underestimated this wine from barrel last year.”
David Schildknecht-Wine Advocate 89 points “Fourrier’s 2008 Morey-St.-Denis Clos Salon delivers a proliferation of herbs, bittersweet flowers, roots, and red fruits at distilled and concentrated tincture strength, leading to a bracing, palate-staining impression with a saline, iodine-like, medicinal finish that resembles the corresponding Aux Echezeaux in its sense of having been macerated on cherry pits and chalk pebbles, but also encompasses a deep richness of meat stock. This lean, electrically bright Pinot sends shivers down my spine and sets my tongue quivering, though some tasters might say the same about it and not mean that as a compliment!”

Domaine Fourrier Morey-Saint-Denis Clos Solon Vieilles Vignes 2009 750ML ($219.95) $179 special, 1 bottle in stock now
Antonio Galloni 89+ points “The 2009 Morey St. Denis Clos Solon is classy and elegant. Bright red fruits melt into flowers as this inviting, graceful wine opens up in the glass. Though understated, there is plenty of underlying material here. The finish is long and substantial. This is a terrific entry-level Burgundy. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2024.”
Stephen Tanzer 89 points “Medium red. Raspberry and coffee on the very ripe nose. Wonderfully rich and thick but fresh, with a distinct oak influence (Fourrier uses about 20% new oak across the board to age his wines). Raspberry, mocha and smoke notes carry through on the rich finish, which shows slightly drying tannins. A substantial village offering.”

Domaine Fourrier Morey-Saint-Denis Clos Solon Vieilles Vignes 2012 750ML ($149.95) $119 special, 2 bottles in stock now
Antonio Galloni 90-92 points “Dark red berries, plums, spices, licorice and mint jump from the 2012 Morey-St. Denis Clos Solon. Deep, rich and beautifully layered in the glass, the Clos Solon is a great introduction to the vintage at Fourrier. The 2012 is silky, powerful and absolutely impeccable from start to finish. Beams of minerality give the finish energy, tension and bracing salinity.”
Burghound 89-91 points – Outstanding “A cool and pure nose of red currant, earth and a hint of spice introduces detailed, energetic and delicious middle weight flavors that display excellent depth and length in the context of the appellation. Lovely stuff.”

Burghound 88-91 points “A ripe and very fresh mix of red berries, warm earth and soft tea nuances leads to relatively full-bodied and delicious middle weight flavors that possess a suave and round mouth feel, all wrapped in a balanced and lingering finish. This is not especially complex at present yet the underlying material is present such that more will almost certainly develop.”
Neal Martin-Wine Advocate 88-90 points “The 2013 Morey Saint Denis Clos Solon, which was taken from two casks and will include around 20% new oak, has a fragrant, lightly candied bouquet with touches of orange sorbert and strawberry shortcake. The palate is medium-bodied, tightly wound, with a slight reduction toward the finish, a slight powdery texture on the finish. Fine.”

Stephen Tanzer 89-92 points “Bright, moderately saturated medium red. Rather wild scents of crushed cherry stomp, flowers, medicinal herbs and minerals. Offers a lovely fine-grained texture and sweetness of fruit but still in a juicy style for all its ripeness. Very good for this cuvée but there are just three barrels of this juice from 0.34 hectare–or not much above 20 hectoliters per hectare. Savory and long on the aftertaste, with plenty of tannic support.”
Burghound 89-91 points “A discreet application of wood more easily allows the cool, pure and airy essence of black cherry and floral scents to be appreciated. The equally elegant flavors possess a sublime mouthfeel, indeed the word lacy would be apt, though the finish is sufficiently tight and linear at present that a few years of bottle age should help to flesh it out.”

Stephen Tanzer 90-93 points “[2014 vintage] Deep, bright red with ruby highlights. Slightly musky aromas of blueberry, licorice, minerals and dark chocolate are lifted by a violet topnote. Wonderfully sweet, silky dark berry fruit is framed by harmonious acidity. This very round wine is totally different than Fourrier’s Gevreys from estate fruit. Lovely palate-saturating finish.”
