About this Item

2010 - 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cherbaudes VV
4 (2 x 2) 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

2010

'This is ripe yet quite cool and airy with its ultra-pure blend of red currant, plum and violet aromas. There is plenty of pungent Gevrey style earth on the seductive and strikingly refined medium-bodied flavors that are also supported by impressive mature tannins that are pushed to the background by the copious amount of dry extract. I very much like the delivery as the tannins are quite finely grained though dense and the overall sense of harmony is entirely beguiling.' - Allen Meadows Burghound.com 91-93

2011

‘The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cherbaudes wraps around the palate with serious depth and volume. Today the Cherbaudes is intense, resonant and expressive. I imagine it will drink well fairly early, but at the same time, there is more than enough stuffing to allow for a number of years of fine drinking. Drinking window 2015 - 2031.’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 91-93/100 (Mar 2014)

‘The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cherbaudes has a feminine, lifted bouquet that is very fragrant with cold stone and spice. This has a lovely voluminous palate adorned with immense precision, fresh acidity and lovely tension and race toward the finish. Full of vigor and minerality, the Cherbaudes is one of Jean-Marie’s finest 2011s. Drink 2014-2023.’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 94/100 (Aug 2013)
