Tasting Notes

Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Jean-Marie Fourrier's 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St Jacques (labelled with "Vieilles Vignes") has a very pure bouquet, almost coulis-like fruit, dark cherries intermingling with blueberry and light marmalade scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity, quite sensual in the mouth with good depth on the finish. Perhaps what it is missing is that peacock’s tail—it sort of ends in the wrong key. There is great potential here though not best in the (Clos Saint-Jacques) show this year. Like a television with its contrast turned up a bit too high when compared to its peers. Tasted September 2017. Drink Date 2020 - 2040

Score: 93Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (223), October 2017

Healthy dark red. Sexy spicy lift to the aromas of red and black cherry, licorice and minerals. Quite dry and saline; less expressive today than the Combe aux Moine but richer, deeper and more tactile. In a floral, somewhat cooler style, with black fruit, mineral and violet flavors building steadily as the wine opens in the glass. Finishes with outstanding energy and saline minerality. The tannins are utterly smooth but this wine will need extended cellaring.

Score: 92/95Stephen Tanzer,, January 2016

Deep crimson with blackish edges. Real intensity. Lots of freshness and fruit. Real step up from the other premiers crus. Some density. Edgy.
