Red Burgundy Fourrier 2005 Clos Saint Jacques Vieille Vigne

3 Bottle 75cl £490
  • Domaine Fourrier
    Gevrey-Chambertin "Clos St. Jacques"
    1er Cru Red 750 ml
    Score: 94
    Tasted: Nov 18, 2016
    Drink: Try from 2025+
    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.

Red Burgundy Fourrier 1998 Griotte-Chambertin Vieille Vigne

2 Bottle 75cl £550
  • Good deep red. Knockout nose combines raspberry, strawberry, minerals, flowers and spices, plus a whiff of smoked meat. Offers great clarity and depth of fruit, and firm grip on the back end. The big, dusty tannins spread out to coat the entire palate, with the red berry and mineral flavors mounting slowly and lingering impressively. The crop level here was just under 30 hectoliters per hectare, according to Fourrier.

Red Burgundy Fourrier 2006 Gevrey 1er Cru Champeaux

1 Bottle 75cl £160
  • Good deep red. Sweet red fruits and vanilla on the nose, with a jammy suggestion. Supple and sweet on entry, then drier and less forthcoming in the middle, with a cool minty character and lively acidity currently to the fore. Finishes firm, with attractive minty lift.

Tasting Notes
Red Burgundy Fourrier 2009 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Gruenchers Vieille Vigne

1 Bottle 75cl £225
  • The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Gruenchers bursts from the glass with a head spinning exotic bouquet that melds seamlessly into layers of dark red fruit. The wine covers every inch of the palate with its superb texture and generous fruit. This turns surprisingly dense and muscular with air, suggesting it has the structure to be a long distance runner. The driven, powerful finish is fabulous.

Red Burgundy Fourrier 1996 Clos Saint Jacques Vieille Vigne

  • Domaine Fourrier
    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.

Tasting Notes
Red Burgundy Fourrier 1996 Griotte-Chambertin Vieille Vigne

1 Bottle 75cl £625£565
  • 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.

Red Burgundy Fourrier 2000 Clos Saint Jacques Vieille Vigne

    Gevrey-Chambertin "Clos St. Jacques"  ♥
    1er Cru Red barrel
    Score: 90-93
    Tasted: Jan 01, 2002

    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.
