About this Item

2003 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques
1 (1 x 1) 750ml

In 1994, when he was only 23 years old, Jean-Marie Fourrier took over his family domaine. He had been working on the family estate since 1989, while also completing internships with Henri Jayer and Domaine Drouhin Oregon. Jean Marie's winemaking philosophy closely mirror's Jayer's – making great wines begins in the vineyard. He works hard to maintain healthy vines and practices extremely natural winemaking techniques. Today, Domaine Fourrier holds vines in a few of Gevrey Chambertin’s top vineyards, where most vines date back to the beginning of the 20th century. His most famous holdings, resulting in 'cult wines', are the ones in Griotte Chambertin and Clos St Jacques, which were planted between 1902 - 1910.

Critics Ratings

‘Rich and exotic and winning. Lots of alcohol and sweetness. A little brutal on the finish but there’s no shortage of hedonistic appeal. Slight hint of coffee – something a little bit dry.’ - Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20 (Nov 2008)

‘(vines planted in 1910) Bright ruby-red. Knockout musky nose combines raspberry, minerals, game and a floral nuance; super ripe and rather full-blown for this cuvee Then wonderfully sweet but with solid minerally spine contributing shape and finesse. Extremely fine-grained and thoroughly ripe. Finishes with big, broad, suave tannins and outstanding persistence.’ - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 92+/100 (Mar 2005)
