Red Burgundy Fourrier 1996 Clos Saint Jacques Vieille Vigne

[Duty Paid]

5 Bottle 75cl £500

    Gevrey-Chambertin "Clos St. Jacques"
    1er Cru Red 750 ml

    Tasted: Mar 03, 2019
    Drink: Now
     
    Tasting note: This has always been an elegant wine and it remains one with its gorgeously perfumed and beautifully layered aromas of spicy secondary fruit, earth and a hint of sandalwood. There is an equally lovely inner mouth perfume to the chiseled, intense and stony lighter weight flavors that possess a silky texture that is not confirmed by the finish as the latter is somewhat drying and puckery. As the description suggests, this has obvious attributes but unfortunately the dryness is only likely to become more pronounced and thus I would advise drinking up.

Red Burgundy Fourrier 1996 Griotte Chambertin Vieille Vigne

1 Bottle 75cl £625
  • Saturated red-ruby color. Black raspberry, coffee, iron, minerals and an intriguing vegetal complexity on the nose. Very sweet, even thick, and strong in extract, but a bit tough today and dominated by its acidity and mineral underpinning. But already shows great verve and an extremely long, strong finish. One for the cellar.

    Producer note: Jean-Marie Fourrier candidly explained that because there was so much rot in '00, he was obliged to treat his vines more than he prefers but that the green harvest helped not only eliminate excess crop but improved aeration as well, helping to keep the rot to manageable levels. Berry size was much bigger in '00 than in '99, and even after dropping a lot of crop, he didn't feel as though he had sufficient dry exact for the amount of juice and thus he did a saignée of between 5 to 8% for some wines. He also did more pigeage (punch downs) than normal; this is to say a whopping 4 times per day!
    He also explained that the fermentations started almost immediately even though he had cooled the must to 12 degrees Centigrade. The malos were slow to begin as they didn't start until April and lasted as late as August. Since 97 he has tried not to rack his wines at all and these '00s had not been racked once, not even after the malos when the first racking typically occurs. He believes that extended aging on the lees produces more glycerol as well as keeps the wines very fresh.
    Fourrier says that precision of fruit is what he was searching for with his 2000s as he is impressed with the vintage's purity. They will be bottled around April with no fining or filtration because he believes that almost every vintage needs an additional 6 to 8 months of élevage after the malos are finished. As an aside, Fourrier works as much as possible with CO2 and thus recommends decanting all of his wines before serving them; the rationale behind this is that he believes that the gas is a powerful preserver of wines and will keep them fresh longer while the tannic structure resolves itself.
    The style of the Fourrier '00s is all about elegance and finesse. They are not particularly dense and certainly not over extracted or manipulated and few producers achieve this level of elegance, purity of fruit and impeccable balance.
    Tasting note: Strikingly elegant nose of earth, pure pinot fruit and touch of game followed by sappy, gorgeously intense, mouth coating flavors of outstanding precision with a strong, persistent finish. The detail this delivers is really impressive and this will challenge the Rousseau as to which Clos St. Jacques is the best in '00.

    Tasting note: (with thanks to Doug Barzelay). Initially this was heavily reduced and required a full 45 minutes in a vigorously shaken decanter to really dissipate the funk. Like many '05s at this stage in their evolution this remains reserved and tight but the concentration and balance is seriously impressive. That said, the reserved nose, while offering glimpses of what is to come, is still notably closed and the supporting tannins shaping the impressively scaled flavors remain markedly firm. I remain highly optimistic that in time this is going to be a genuinely great Clos St. Jacques but for now it's basically infanticide, and this is true even with extended aeration. I would advise just letting this slumber away for the better part of another decade as it's going to need it but when it finally matures, we're in for a real treat! Tasted twice in the last 3 years with almost identical results.

    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. Anticipated maturity: 2023-2033. Count me among the Burgundy fans who are thrilled Jean-Marie Fourrier chose not to pursue the career as a commercial airline pilot for which he studied. Fourrier began picking on September 17. In 2009 the fruit was destemmed. Cuvaison lasted around 14 days but Fourrier commented that he had an unusually high (50%) amount of shot berries, which had the effect of extending the fermentations for another week or so. The malos started and ended early, hence Fourrier decided to bottle early as well. Per his usual practice, Fourrier left the wines on the lees with no racking until the wines were prepared for bottling. On average the wines saw 20% new oak. I tasted all of the 2009s from bottle.

Red Burgundy Fourrier 2010 Gevrey 1er Cru Champeaux Vielle Vigne

    The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux is a much more obvious, flashy and seductive wine than the other Gevrey 1er Crus. It shows all of its qualities up-front, in a radiant, juicy style that is impossible to resist. The Champeaux caresses the palate with pliant red berries, freshly cut flowers and slate, all of which flow effortlessly to the supple, inviting finish. I can’t see too much reason to delay gratification with this bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028. The biggest news at Domaine Fourrier is Jean-Marie Fourrier’s decision to launch a small negociant operation to augment his estate wines. Readers can look forward to new bottlings from the 1er Cru Aux Exchanges in Chambolle-Musigny and two new Grand Cru wines from Clos de Vougeot and Echezeaux, all of which will debut with the 2011 vintage. As for 2010, Fourrier told me he is down 40% across the board in terms of yields. The cold weather during the flowering produced 100% millerandage (shot berries), which Fourrier described as pea-sized grapes. While that is not good for quantity, it has certainly turned out great for quality. Readers who want to learn more about Fourrier’s thoughts on the vintage and approach to vinification might want to check out my video interview on www.erobertparker.com. As a quick note, none of the 2010s had been racked at the time of my visit in early December 2011. I have kept scores a bit wider than normal in the few cases where the wines were a touch reduced.
