    May 11, 2014 - Not quite as good as it was three weeks ago. Good mature Gevrey, but it lacked the sweet tinkle in the middle that the previous bottle had.

    April 25, 2014 - Pure, sappy, red fruited, lovely sweet middle, round and persistent, quite delightful. Late 90s Fourriers often taste older than their years, but not this which retains a youthful prettiness

    December 23, 2012 - Plush, meaty, savoury, an earthy tone (verging on musty), but the fruit's so ripe, it doesn't matter. High acid. Seems oaky, like a rioja. In the glass it broadens out, the fruit becomes softer and redder.

    May 22, 2011 - Not much nose to start with, and what there was had a touch of mustiness, but the palate was bright and red fruited, high acid. In the glass the musty tone diminished then disappeared, the fruit got brighter and brighter, the sap rose, ended up glorious

    April 10, 2011 - Tangy, red fruited, mature Gevrey, a citrus twist adding freshness, sappy, fresh exciting, but not as harmonious as, say, the 01 Solon - nevertheless, a lovely wine

    (Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes) Medium ruby-red. A nose that starts deep and surprisingly oaky given that there’s normally a maximum of 20% in this cellar - but it’s short-lived before fading into redder, layered fruit overlaid by higher toned alcoholic aspects, maybe even an edge of coffee. In the mouth it starts impressively; it’s well balanced, and shows a lovely, succulent, creamy red fruit. Time increases the depth but eventually dulls the excitement just a hint. It’s intense in the mid-palate and you never really think of the tannin before it slowly fades in the finish - still with that creamy edge. Poised, elegant and a first-class villages.

    (Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes) Deep cherry colour with purple edges. The nose has toasty oak still evident but behind there is a sweet fruit compote, more black than red plus a touch vanilla. Really excellent concentration of fruit on the palate, that seams to keep following the lingering acidity. The tannin is there but in the background. An above average ‘village’ wine from an excellent vintage, also great to drink right now.
