Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Clos-Saint-Jacques 2000

by David Lole » Sun Sep 17, 2006 8:47 am

Jean-Marie Fourrier’s spectacular efforts in restoring the reputation and fortunes of this once revered domaine are highlighted in this outstanding example of Red Burgundy.

Harbours a transluscent, bright light ruby/red core with some rust in the meniscus followed by a rivetting spicy, sappy, savoury bouquet of red fruits, mainly plum and cherry, earthy morellos, cardamon, spice box with a deft touch of undergrowth and seasoned oak. Compelling, charming, beautifully balanced and perfectly honed. Bravo! The palate continues the drill with similar aplomb - gorgeously silky and svelte in the mouth with a replica of nuance found on the nose, remarkably good acidity, a lovely touch of minerale and just brilliantly judged fine lacy tannins. To top things off the finish is smooth and awfully long with the fruit, acid and tannins persisting in complete harmony. Drinking incredibly well now, this brilliant “feminine” Pinot Noir has the necessary ingredients to live for many years at this extraordinary high level. 93 points 13.5% A/V
Cheers,

David

Excellent notes on an excellent wine from an excellent producer from a vintage that the less-close-minded consumers are understanding in a hurry has the ability to please...
