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
