    September 16, 2018 - Disappointing oak bomb not a normal flavor profile for Jean Marie.

Like you, I have been drinking Fourrier forever and liked his wines because you did not need to buy the Clos St. Jacques to get something good. Did you try to Fourrier shake before drinking the 15 GC VV? In any event, if you are ever in Washington D.C., look me up and we can drink the wine and discuss it!
