Gevrey Chambertin Combe Aux Moines, Domaine Fourrier 2009

Tasting Notes

**Note: from .87 ha parcel planted in 1928**
Soft floral notes add nuance and breadth to the ripe and pretty red berry fruit and earth aromas that precede the powerful, concentrated and focused middle weight plus flavors that culminate in a balanced, focused and beautifully precise and mildly austere finish. This displays plenty of underlying tension and there is a lovely sense of overall harmony here.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (45), January 2012

Bright, dark red. Very pure aromas of dark berries, stony minerality and wild herbs are lifted by a floral topnote and complicated by a whiff of white truffle. Dense, layered and sweet but also sharply delineated, displaying superb acidity for the vintage. Finishes with ripe tannins and outstanding persistence. Fourrier picked later than most of his neighbors in 2009 but says that his fruit retained freshness because he did no leaf-pulling.
