Gevrey Chambertin aux Echezeaux, Domaine Fourrier 2016

Tasting Notes

Here the nose isn't as spicy though it is more floral with its layered array of violet, lavender, rose and fresh dark cherry aromas. The sleek, delicious and lightly mineral-inflected flavors possess good volume though the finish is presently both mildly austere and borderline chewy. This isn't an elegant Chambolle and like the Aux Réas it will need at least a few years of cellaring to round off the tannins. With that said, there is more underlying material and ultimately this should develop into a quality villages.
