Tasting Notes

Domaine Fourrier
1996
Gevrey-Chambertin "Clos St. Jacques"
1er Cru Red 750 ml
Score: 88
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.
