2010 Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieille Vigne - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin (8/13/2013)
There's been quite a lot written about this wine already, and the themes have been largely consistent - youthful, sappy, red fruit and some spice, with the underpinnings of the wine largely hidden in the background under the fruit. Yep - that's this wine. It bears more than a passing resemblance to a 2010 Lapierre Morgon in its purity, freshness and light-handed drinkability, but has more substance in the background waiting to emerge. Of course that may never happen, as the wine is so delicious now that it's hard not to drink it all in one go.
