Domaine Fourrier Wines Reviews

Domaine Fourrier has managed to produce some great 2017 wines, perhaps their very old vines have naturally lowered yields and retained their acidity and concentration very well. There are Gevrey producers with the broader Grands Crus holdings – Domaines Rousseau, Rossignol-Trapet, and Pierre Damoy, for example – but the Fourrier’s 10 hectares still include several gems, including the Griotte-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Gruenchers, and Five Gevrey Premiers Crus – Clos St Jacques, Combe aux Moines, Champeaux, Chebaudes, and Goulots – all but one located in the northwest corner of the appellation, influenced by the refreshing breezes of Combe de Lavaux.

Jean-Marie Fourrier had a 6-month internship for some time with Henri Jayers as well as Domaine Drouin in Oregon, although Jean-Marie has a clear wine style he wants to make (which is stylistically unlike Henri Geyers), Jean -Marie Marie drew attention to detail from the legendary Henri Jayer.

Particularly popular are the Grand Cru Griot-Chambertin and Premier Cru Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques (0.89 hectares, vines planted between 1902 and 1910), including the Cuvee Centenaire. wines “.” I like Fourier wines with their direct and obvious fruit flavors.    

Jean-Marie Furrier, who took over the family estate, adopted a style that exactly matches what the current generation of Burgundy drinkers want from a bottle of wine. The Furrier family has been exporting wine since the mid-1950s and was one of the first bottling companies starting in the 1930s. This very round wine is completely different from the Furrier Gevrey from the fruit of the estate. David Schildknecht-Wine Advocate 89 points “Fourriers 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echezeaux (from nearly 90-year-old vines) is intensely flavored with kirsch, herbs, and sea sprays that overshadow its bright, salty, hard, but not hard or harsh flavor.  

They may not be the most concentrated or strongest wines, but their great fruity character attracts my hedonistic soul.
