Reviews;

"Charming vibrant red purple. There is tension here not seen in Chambolle. This is a high-class nose, very intense, flirts with volatile but returns to a sense of precision, especially in comparison with the lush Bonnes Mares. This will be a classic Echezeaux with an excellent long fresh red fruit finish."- Tasted: November 2020 Jasper Morris 94-96 Pts

Domaine Fourrier has been a recent addition to our 'favourites Burgundy Domaines', ever since tasting the wines with the importer back in 2018. 
Everything from the Bourgogne Blanc and Rouge up to the spectacular Gevrey-Chambertin and beyond (hello that Vougeot and Echezeaux!) were silky and humming with energy. 
Though the domaine has been around since the 1940's, they remained under the radar till the late 1980's. When Jean-Marie Fourrier took over in 1994, their vines throughout Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanee and Morey-St-Denis really started to shine. JM Fourrier took the invaluable experience he learned from his father and uncle as well enviable time spent with Henri Jayer to bring the domaine to its critical acclaim. 
Fourrier is very specific when it comes to viticulture and their precisely tended vines must reach at least 50 years of age before fruit is used int their estate bottlings. The domaine's average vine age currently sits between 50-70 years age. “Until a vineyard develops a root system, it doesn’t develop flavour”, says Jean-Marie. 
Each vineyard regardless of Grand Cru status is vinified separately. Winemaking is similar for each cuvee, preferring to use temperature control, CO2 and lees contact instead of sulfur dioxide. Malolcatic fermentation is allowed to proceed at its own pace with Jean-Marie believing the longer period aids in ageability. Wines are often kept on their fine lees for up to 20 months before bottling and often bottled straight from barrel without fining or filtration. He rarely uses more than 20% new oak.
