Fourrier is a sensation for some obvious reasons and for one slightly less obvious reason. Obvious reasons include: great holdings in the famous village of Gevrey Chambertin, old vines, great farming, and great wine-making. The less obvious reason is style. Jean-Marie Fourrier, after he took over his family's domaine, adopted a style that speaks with precision to what the current generation of Burgundy drinkers wants in a bottle of wine. They no longer want oak flavors. They no longer want heavy extraction. They don't want lots of sulphur and reduction (at least in their red wines), and they didn't want to wait 10 years before drinking. Instead, we want purity and transparency. We want direct access into the beautiful terroir of the Cote d'Or. To this end, Fourrier dialed back the new oak and extraction, putting him in line with other current-generation stars like Mugnier and Roumier. He eschews sulphur additions and instead allows a little bit of residual carbonation to stay in the wine to act as a preservative (so he recommends always decanting a young bottle of Fourrer).

Professional Reviews

BH 91
"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."

Antonio Galloni

AG 90
"Medium-deep red. Deep plum and red cherry aromas are lifted by spice and mineral nuances. Juicy, shapely and deep; more delineated and filled in than the Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echézeaux, which nearly every vintage strikes me as more Chambolle in character (these vines are situated on the southern edge of Gevrey-Chambertin). Finishes with firm, integrated tannins and very good length." -Vinius

Robert Parker

RP 92
"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."

Focus On: Burgundy

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.

While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!

From the very basics of Burgundy's regions and wines to the specific terroirs of individual single vineyards--
everything you need to know about Bourgogne is just a click away!
