2019 J.M. Fourrier Bourgogne Rouge
Sorry, currently out of stock
Jean-Marie Fourrier took over the family domaine from his father in the mid 90s at the age of 23. His experience was gained at the family domaine in Gevrey Chambertin, and while working at Domaine Drouhin in Oregon and alongside the legendary Henry Jayer in Vosne-Romanee. Jean-Marie was involved in the making of the classic 1988 vintage at chez Jayer, and his wine making philosophy has followed Jayer’s practices ever since, making great wines begin in the vineyard – and he is fastidious about maintaining healthy, well nurtured vines, and following strict, extremely natural wine making techniques.
All the fruit comes from the Côte de Nuits from Fixin through to Corgoloin. Glowing red purple with a juicy ripe cherry bouquet, and the same excellent structure at the back which is so important. – Jasper Morris
