Description

The Fourriers have 0.8 ha of this 4.76 ha vineyard at the top of the hill. The vines were planted in 1928 and Jean Marie reports very good survival rates up there so little replacement over the years. This vineyard seems to have taken on extra depth in recent vintages. The 2004 was outrageous for the vintage, the 2005 a classic and now, the 2006 is a humdinger. Crunchy structure, light toast oak, bright fruits that go on and on; stunning purity. Top notch. 2019 to 2031.

Producer Information: Domaine Fourrier

In 1995 Jean-Marie Fourrier took over the winemaking from his father Jean-Claude, who had been making the wines since 1967, at first in partnership with his uncle, from whom many of the vines were inherited. Jean-Marie has a broader perspective than many of his fellow winemakers, as he spent time making Pinot Noir in Oregon, as well as training in France. Today, Domaine Fourrier is achieving critical acclaim but Jean-Marie is still young and ambitious to achieve even more. His star may be firmly in the ascendant but his feet are firmly rooted in the vineyards of Gevrey.
