Gevrey Clos Saint Jacques, Domaine Fourrier 2008

Tasting Notes

A beautiful panoply of floral and herbal suffused red and blue pinot fruit liberally laced with ample minerality that also defines the textured and ultra pure middle weight flavors that possess excellent precision and verve on the driving and wonderfully long and linear finish. 2015+

Medium red. High-pitched aromas of red cherry, raspberry, rose petal, white pepper and crushed stone. Dense and silky in texture but with great juiciness, clarity and lift thanks to piquant acidity and stony minerality. This saturates the palate with fruits and flowers yet comes off as virtually weightless. An explosive hint of pepper accentuates the impression of lift, but there's nothing green about this beauty. My style of Burgundy.

This offers the prettiest and easily the most elegant nose in the range with a beautiful panoply of floral suffused red and blue pinot fruit liberally laced with minerals that also define the textured and ultra pure middle weight flavors that possess excellent precision and verve on the driving and wonderfully long finish. A classic Clos St. Jacques.
