Community Tasting Notes (average 91.1 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 42 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Rupert on 1/29/2015 & rated 92 points: Next to the Solon, the two are very similar with their deep liqueurish black cherry fruit, good energy, the Gevrey as ever just a tad broader and sweeter than the Solon. (2097 views)
 Tasted by Le Monty on 11/1/2014: This came from an auction case that had a China import label on it. Figured better check out a bottle to make sure it was well handled. Drank just like my local retail bottles. Big acidity, big cherry fruit, very good indeed. (2397 views)
 Tasted by Pverd on 10/5/2014 & rated 92 points: I have to stop drinking this stuff. Pure lifted red fruits with a touch of earth. Palate is again red fruited just mid weight, lovely long palate with perfect freshness. Already decent length. Just a perfect burg (2367 views)
 Tasted by BillyT on 7/15/2014 & rated 91 points: Still REALLY new to the world of Burgundy. The more I enter that world the more I get hooked. The smokiness, elegance of this wine is great. Black and red fruit with the earthiness I adore in wine. Some mint and menthol but pleasing. Medium legs and tears. Beautiful initial attack of cherries and bright acidity with a dryness crying for a beautiful hanger steak. Still young but approachable. Well balanced with a bright future. (3494 views)
 Tasted by Pverd on 7/13/2014 & rated 91 points: All about lovely fresh red fruits - just a cornucopia of red berries on the nose - more a nod to chambolle than slightly more earthy gevrey at this stage. After a decent "fourrier shake" to get the co2 out the aromatics really lift and the purity and freshness are highlighted. Lots of crunchy red fruit on the not quite midweight palate - very primary and very lively. Already has quite a long finish witha wonderful freshness to the finish. Lovely village burgundy. (2834 views)
 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 6/20/2014: That's crazy amazing aromatics. And the palate follows suit. Works it out for anything under $100. (2886 views)
 Tasted by DCornutt on 3/17/2014: This wine is so tied up with structure on opening. Lots of wood. The fruit is totally covered with elevage.
2 hours later.
Intense red fruit core. Incredible nose. The essence of Gevrey. This wine shows all the best of Gevrey on the nose but not the complexity of Chambertin.
A+ village wine. Decant if you want to try this folks! This is a special village wine. (3186 views)
 Tasted by short and confused on 2/10/2014 & rated 90 points: Very different from a few months ago and not moving in a positive direction. Bottle variation or shutting down? Bright, full, red. Where as before the was a filigree of tangy candied red fruits, dark berries, flowers and earth, this time the nose was a bit one dimensional and primary. Again good volume with earth and sour cherries on the palate but only a hint of the Gevrey game. A nice long finish with some salinity but I will not be returning to the remaining bottles for some time (?2018). (3429 views)
 Tasted by FYC on 2/9/2014: Decanted for 2-3 hours. Beautiful village. Perfumed strawberry floral nose. Palate is sweet red fruit and savory at the same time with sandalwood and clove. Delicious. (2752 views)
 Tasted by chablis28 on 12/17/2013 & rated 90 points: Didn't rock me tonight. Might be that my expectations were a little too high. Struck me tonight as more of a gateway Burgundy for those coming from CA to Burgundy. A bit ripe and one dimensional at this stage. Very accessible right now but also very primary. I have 3 more and I won't touch the next one for some time. Hum, I own other vintages and was more impressed in the past. Nice but not awesome yet. (3434 views)
 Tasted by Tomihenr on 11/7/2013: Light ruby red, transparent. Cherry nose, roses and barn. Very balanced, tannins ever so slightly tough at this stage, nice minerality, sweetish and long. (3136 views)
 Tasted by ktrh on 11/6/2013 & rated 91 points: Great amazingly fresh nose, low sulfur nose! Some raspberries and strawberries. In the mouth layers of flavour, good freshness and acidity. Some firm tannins and long finish.
91-92 (2537 views)
 Tasted by short and confused on 10/19/2013 & rated 93 points: Bright, full, red. Ah yes. The beautiful tangy candied red fruits, dark berries, rose petals and sweet wet earth greet the nose. Very good volume with soil driven slightly sappy red fruits and some wet gamey fur across the palate. The finish is long with some salinity. This speaks of both place and the person who brings the place forth. A Gevrey and also Fourrier. This is village wine? Wow. (2729 views)
 Tasted by etherscreen on 10/13/2013 & rated 92 points: DCWINO's note was spot on. no need to duplicate.

this was terrific - the minerality juxtaposed on the sappy red fruits was to die for. paired quite well with a waygu hanger. need to find more. (2408 views)
 Tasted by sehill on 10/5/2013 & rated 91 points: Opened and poured, this wine shows aromatics of red cherry, cranberry, spice and floral notes. The bouquet gives the impression of being solidly red fruited. The color is a translucent medium ruby that is youthful and vibrant. The medium bodied palate comes across as high toned with abundant tart red fruit. The wines finishes with fair amount of acidity, light to medium tannins and medium length. The wines gives the impression it will benefit from additional bottle age which should soften and better integrate some of the high-toned elements. (2326 views)
 Tasted by dcwino on 10/4/2013 & rated 93 points: Showing beautifully. Exquisite pure fresh red fruits, cherry, candied raspberry, sap, mushroom, earth and sweet spices. Medium concentration, pure sappy fruits, delicate palate expression, bright acidity and nicely integrated tannins. This is a great example of the purity and sweetness in 2010 reds. Perhaps not as complex but the purity in fruit is not unlike the top GCs. Incredibly delicious but will improve for at least another decade. (2326 views)
 Tasted by french16 on 9/26/2013: Right away you recognize Fourrier hallmark freshness and minerality.
Start with small red berry fruits and slowly evolve to a darker profile and violets. Huge structure with a great balance. This needs to be forgotten a for few years. Great future. (2485 views)
 Tasted by manonthemoon on 9/25/2013 & rated 91 points: Small taste.
My favorite of the Burgs open.
Strong nose with dark fruit going on and pepper.
Good structure as well. (2049 views)
 Tasted by isaacjamesbaker on 9/25/2013 & rated 92 points: 30th Birthday Party: I tasted this blind, and was impressed it was a village wine. Go Fourrier. Intense, shifting, evolving nose of bright red fruit, green olives, tobacco and dried flowers. Silky, but firm tannins, with bright and brisk acid. The red fruit is bright but sappy, and backed up by notes of loam and mushroom. Beautiful stuff that got better and better over the course of the evening. (2438 views)
 Tasted by rm wines on 9/20/2013: Similar to my previous note, although somehow this is just a bit darker and tighter than before. Perhaps it's almost time to let these rest. (2100 views)
 Tasted by Sycamore on 8/24/2013 & rated 90 points: Fantastic aromatics -- very earthy. Highly structured and well-balanced. Fruit quite primary and on the red end of the scale. Very powerful overall, but drinkable. Likely better 2+ years out, though. Try again in about a year. (2452 views)
 Tasted by tyvoodoo on 8/15/2013: Floral and perfumed red fruited nose, plenty of spice. Great purity and concentration in the mouth, sappy Pinot fruit, more profound spice notes, balanced, nice weight and length. An absolute pleasure to drink now. (2206 views)
 Tasted by Rieslingfan on 8/13/2013 & rated 93 points: There's been quite a lot written about this wine already, and the themes have been largely consistent - youthful, sappy, red fruit and some spice, with the underpinnings of the wine largely hidden in the background under the fruit. Yep - that's this wine. It bears more than a passing resemblance to a 2010 Lapierre Morgon in its purity, freshness and light-handed drinkability, but has more substance in the background waiting to emerge. Of course that may never happen, as the wine is so delicious now that it's hard not to drink it all in one go. (2724 views)
 Tasted by rm wines on 8/5/2013: Drinking oh-so-well right now, with a nose of pure red fruit that is backed up by just the right amount of spice and sap as well as some extremely smooth tannin. Tremendous effort for a village wine. (2446 views)
 Tasted by dcwino on 7/23/2013 flawed bottle: Ever so slightly corked. But still noticeable beautiful red fruits, sophisticated fruit expression. (2424 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
