Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin 1er ‘Clos St Jacques’ 2010

Pinot Noir from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 18-Feb-2014
Lighter ruby red colour, very youthful. The bouquet is fulsome and voluminous with concentrated and intense aromas of pure dark cherry and raspberry fruits. There is a core of dark herbs, spices and whole cluster nuances along with ethereal waves of raspberry compote and violet fragrances. Oaking is very sensitive and positive, adding a layer of detail and interest. On palate, wonderfully rich, refined and supple. Sweet, aromatic fruit, raspberry cherry with finest herb and floral intricacies. Perfect balance and harmony with exquisitely fine-grained, flowery tannins and integrated acid brightness. This has lovely concentration and depth and the structure guides the palate effortlessly, but with drive and energy to a very long, sustained finish. A Clos St Jacques of immense refinement and subtlety with seamless concentration. 15+ years. 19.5+/20 Feb 2014 RRP $N/A
