Fourrier, J-M 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes
100% Pinot Noir. Red and black raspberries, sous bois, and subtle earthy aromas. Jean-Marie works reductively during the élevage, never racking and encouraging carbon dioxide as a preserving agent; this allows him to use far less sulfur dioxide than is commonly employed in the Côte d’Or and lends his fruit striking immediacy. This accounts for the startling burst of aromas, the pop of vibrant fruit, the silky texture, the clarity of terroir typicity, and effortless ease and grace to Fourrier wines which have given them their almost singular appeal. Limited.
