Critic Notes

An exuberantly spicy nose displays notes of pepper, violet, sandalwood, plum and Asian-style tea. There is first-rate richness and concentration to the beautifully textured medium-bodied flavors that deliver excellent depth and length on the sappy finale. As good as this appears to be, and it appears to be really good, the 2014 is likely to be even better. I would argue for buying both if you can find them! Dec 2016, www.burghound.com

Jean-Marie Fourrier: Embracing The Future, Preserving The Past
A real highlight on our trip to Burgundy this Autumn was a visit to a producer whom I have admired and collected for many years - Jean-Marie Fourrier. The first time I remember being bewitched by his wines was during the 2011 En Primeur tastings. In such an inconsistent vintage where many wines tasted green and astringent, his range of ...
