The Wine

The old vines that the Fourier estate owns in Chambolle-Musigny are almost a hundred years old and scattered throughout the appellation on very varied terroirs, predominantly limestone. On the nose, the depth and balance impresses: here the flowers (particularly violet) and the fruits (strawberry, raspberry) typical of Pinot Noir express themselves with delicacy and are enhanced by classy but subtle oak notes. The tannins complement the finesse of this wine. Drink well young, but will cellar well!

About the Wine Maker

The Domaine Fourrier (previously known as Pernot-Fourrier) has a long history in Gevrey Chambertin extending over four generations. The estate was founded by Fernand Pernot during the 1930s and 1940s. Unmarried and childless, he enlisted the aid of his nephew, Jean-Claude Fourrier, who then took the reins of the domaine in 1969. One of the first domains to actually export its wine to the USA, it is also one of the most well-endowed estates in the village with holdings throughout the most heralded appellations. Having weathered a period of eclipse through the latter part of the 1980s, the domain was re-energized in 1994 upon the arrival of Jean-Marie Fourrier, son of Jean-Claude. Jean-Marie burst on the Burgundian scene by wisely combining the traditions of his father and uncle (using, for example, vines of a minimum 30 years of age for the estate bottlings), his experience gained while working with Henri Jayer and the Domaine Drouhin (in Oregon), and his own clear sense of style. Ever since his ascension, the wines of Domaine Fourrier have garnered critical acclaim. He now works the domaine with the assistance of his sister, Isabelle, and his wife, Vicki.
