2011 Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin "Clos St Jacques Burgundy" - 93 pts!

Domaine Fourrier is a Burgundy wine estate based in Gevrey-Chambertin on the Côte d'Or. Its wines, mostly made from Pinot Noir, are highly sought-after and known for their silky finesse. Fourrier is perhaps best known for its wine from the famed Clos Saint-Jacques Premier Cru vineyard.

The domaine's vineyard holdings total 8.7 hectares (21.5 acres), located predominantly in Gevrey-Chambertin. These include parcels in seven different Gevrey-Chambertin premier cru sites, and a small plot in the Griottes-Chambertin Grand Cru vineyard. Plots in Chambolle-Musigny, including two Premier Crus, Morey-Saint-Denis and the Les Petits Vougeots Premier Cru vineyard complete the portfolio. Only fruit from vines older than 30 years old are used to make Domaine Fourrier wines.

Robert Parker

Robert Parker 93 RP - The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St Jacques, has a very reduced nose at first and required vigorous aeration. There is a herbaceous and stem-like element that I had not noticed in previous bottles, before the wild berry and gamy scents emerge. The quality is really delivered on the palate: here there is the purity, the fineness of the tannin, the symmetry and precision we come to expect from both Fourrier and Clos Saint Jacques. It still requires another couple of years in bottle and I would not ascribe profundity to it. But there is something enigmatic and intriguing about this Clos Saint Jacques that impels me to plot its evolution.

Burghound 93 BH - This also displays a deft touch of wood that surrounds the ultra-fresh and ultra-elegant, pure and superbly well-layered aromas that offer a broad array of both red and blue fruit, stone, exotic tea and dried floral hints. There is a striking vibrancy and intensity to the firmly mineral-driven medium weight flavors that possess simply gorgeous depth on the perfectly balanced and linear finish that delivers outstanding length.
