Tasting Notes

Moderate wood surrounds the earthy red and dark currant aromas that display plenty of warm earth and underbrush nuances. The supple, delicious and nicely vibrant medium weight flavors possess a succulent, even fleshy mid-palate, while displaying good if not special depth on the lingering finish. There is good material here and my range assumes that this will add depth with bottle age.

The parcel of vines Jean-Marie Fourrier buys fruit from in Charmes-Chambertin lies down towards the RN74, which kept it out of harm’s way during the April frosts and this wine has turned out beautifully in 2016. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a lovely blend of cherries, raspberries, chocolate, grilled meats, dark soil tones, wood smoke, cedar and a top note of mustard seed. On the palate the wine is deep. Full-bodied, suave and quite velvety on the attack, with a sappy core of red fruit, fine soil signature, ripe, suave tannins and a long, tangy and beautifully balanced finish. Fine, fine Charmes. 2024-2060.
