Tasting Notes: Pungent aromas of firm reduction and wood toast introduce sleek, intense and powerful middle weight flavors that possess excellent definition on the mineral-inflected and impressively long if somewhat lean and austere finish where a hint of warmth surfaces. This too will need a few years of bottle age to flesh out.
Jean-Marie Fourrier's Philosophy: "First, I only buy fruit and make the wines from appellations that I don't have under the domaine's umbrella. Second, I only buy fruit from domaines who make their own wines from those same grapes as I don't want someone else's cast off production. Third I don't want the total volume from the négociant side to ever total more than 20% of what I make on the domaine side so that my clients understand where my primary focus is. Lastly, the range of wines will only be between Gevrey and Vosne, which again allows me to monitor the quality of the fruit in the vineyards I'm buying from regularly."
