Winemaker Notes

Frequently referred to as the best of the 1er Crus in Gevrey, the "Clos Saint Jacques" vineyard produces some of Fourrier’s most exceptional wines year-in and year-out. The Fourrier holdings here extend for .89 hectare and the vines were planted in 1910.

Critical Acclaim

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Predictably, Fourrier's 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques is in another class from his other premier crus of the vintage, or indeed from most wines of its vintage regardless of classification. (For some salient details about Fourrier's share of this great site, consult issue 170.) A perfume-like, profuse and variegated bouquet of red raspberry, maraschino, cinnamon, marigold, and rose leads to a silken-textured though subtly-tannic palate with smoked meat and saline undertones. This finishes with both a kaleidoscopic dynamic of floral, fruit, animal and mineral elements and a sheer length that spell "grand cru" in all but the INAO's official language. The saline savor, persistence of fresh fruit, and tactile cinnamon and ginger impingements just keep drawing down my reserves of saliva. Here is concentration with finesse and an uncanny sense of lift, as well as the proverbial velvet glove over tightly-woven chain mail..

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.
