Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2020

MCF Rare Wine

Although all of the bottlings of red wine at the Fourrier estate are from old vines (and are so labeled), this cuvée  is simply referred to as the Gevrey Vieilles Vignes. The source of grapes is the Champerrier vineyard. Here, Fourrier owns about three hectares of vines, most of which were planted between 1928 and 1955. In contrast to the “Aux Echezeaux”, this parcel is on the northernmost side of Gevrey bordering the village of Brochon, a location that tends to produce wines of more tannic backbone and overall structure. Displaying notable complexity for a villages-level Gevrey, this offers ripe black-cherry fruit and a beautifully silken texture, yet with an underlying mineral thrust and plenty of structure to evolve well in bottle.
