Gevrey Chambertin Goulots, Domaine Fourrier 2017

Tasting Notes

An exceptionally pretty and fresh nose blends notes of red currant, earth, floral and a shading of the sauvage. Consistent with the nose, there is fine freshness and verve to the intense and relatively finely detailed flavors that are also on the lighter side though there is fine authority to the tightly wound, saline and focused finale. This too will need at least a few years to flesh out and add a bit more depth. Drink: 2027+

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (73), January 2019

Aromas of sweet cherries, currant leaf, candied peel, rose petal and strawberries—subtly framed by a delicate touch of wood—introduce the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Goulots, a medium to full-bodied, tangy wine with fine, chalky tannins and a more tensile, distinctively mineral profile. Fourrier notes that this premier cru was dynamited in the 1950s to prepare it for planting.
