  • Worked for the late legendary Henri Jayer, Jean-Marie Fourrier's wine making philosophy emphasises on the works done to the vines and at harvest
  • At the winery, he does not force extraction, not raise temperature at end of fermentation, not over-oaking - just let vines do their own magic
  • The result, as he puts it, is nobler tannin with fresher and more sophisticated fruit
  • This 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin VV will not only show you Gevrey's character, but also superb skills of Jean-Marie

Burghound: 88-91
"Outstanding Top Value! There is no reduction here however as the very fresh, bright and exuberant nose features briar, red and blue fruit and iron-infused earth aromas that complement to perfection the round, rich and sweet flavors that are unusually well-detailed and finish with punch and power. This too is recommended." (Jan 2007)

Stephen Tanzer: 88-91
"Good bright, deep red. Wilder, musky nose hints at roast coffee. Sweet on entry, then sappy and imploded in the middle, showing less fat than the Echezeaux and a more muscular texture. Ultimately much less sweet than the south-side example. Finishes with substantial building tannins." (Apr 2007)
