- Dom Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echezeaux 2008 Product #24380 (In Stock)
Planted in 1930, Fourrier’s plot sits directly under Charmes-Chambertin on the border with Morey St. Denis. This reminds one of Chambolle, with spicy red fruits and a rich, round, texture. Lovely.
“An intensely, even pungently earthy nose of red and dark berry fruit is very much in keeping with the firm, precise and layered flavors that possess a lovely sense of relief and tension on the solidly long finish. This is very Gevrey in character and offers fine quality for a villages. Drink 2013+”Allen Meadows 87-90 points
"Fourrier’s 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echezeaux (from nearly 90 year-old vines) is intensely scented with kirsch, herbs, and sea spray, which adumbrate its bright, saline, firm but not hard or angular palate impression. Strong cherry pit, stone, and charred meat notes lend this energetic but athletically lean and bright Gevrey a hint of austerity, but it has me salivating uncontrollably. For those who like the style and pair the wine creatively, this should give plenty of pleasure over at least the next 6-8 years, though as Fourrier is eager to concur with me, following the course of 2008s in bottle is bound to mean venturing into relatively uncharted territory."Wine Advocate 89 points

A bit of a misnomer, since Fourrier sells all of the fruit he grows from vines less than 30 years old. The VV comes from the northern end of Gevrey and is always dense and solid with loads of strawberry fruit and a firm finish. A fascinating contrast to the Aux Echezaux and, drunk alongside it, a nice demonstration of terroir.
“Palish red. Captivating, expressive aromas of cherry, smoke, mocha and underbrush; slightly exotic in a positive way. Sweet on entry, then sappy in the middle, thanks to firm acidity and a saline quality. Complex, soil-driven wine but not at all dry.”International Wine Cellar 90 points
- Dom Fourrier Gevrey-chambertin Aux Echezeaux 2009 Product #25639 (In Stock)
As with the VV, you should really wait, but it's so very, very, delicious already!
"A very fresh, cool and bright nose speaks of red berry fruit, warm earth, underbrush and a hint of the sauvage that carries over to the supple but entirely serious medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent precision on the firm, focused and persistent finish."Allen Meadows 89-91 points
"The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echezeaux opens with an exuberant bouquet of roses, berries and spices. It shows gorgeous depth and finesse in a weightless, elegant style. The round, textured finish is gorgeous. Aux Echezeaux is on the border with Morey. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029."Wine Advocate 91 points
