Propriétaire of 60 to 100-year-old vines in some of Gevrey-Chambertin’s most fabled sites, it was not until Jean-Marie Fourrier took charge in 1994 that the domaine once again fulfilled its towering potential—making it today one of the Côte d’Or’s greatest sources for wines that purely express site, aromatic complexity and intensity.

A protégé of the great Henri Jayer, Fourrier describes his non-interventionist, true-to-the-vintage approach as “the philosophy of doing nothing.” Relying on the fine quality of the fruit from his ancient pre-clone vines planted in great crus, the Fourrier wines prove that great Burgundy is made in the vineyard. And, in Gevrey-Chambertin—a village teeming with fine wines—Fourrier’s could be the finest of all.
