The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Combe Aux Moines appears slightly deeper in color than the other premier crus at this early stage. The nose is extremely well defined with blackberry, briary and limestone scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, supple tannins: red cherries, wild strawberry and a touch of iodine on the aftertaste. This is in touch with the Clos Saint Jacques '13 at this stage, so it will be interesting to compare once in bottle. Range: 91-93
Based out of Gevrey-Chambertin in the Côte d'Or region of Burgundy is the highly sought after Domaine Fourrier. The estate is known for their silky Pinot Noir wines made from Premier Cru vines that are more than 30 years old. Fernand Pernot founded the estate in the 1930s and enlisted in the assistance of his nephew, Jean-Claude Fourrier, who took full reign of the winery in 1969. In 1994, Jean-Marie Fourrier, son of Jean-Claude, re-branded the winery by combining his modern winemaking-techniques with his father’s traditional methods. Since Jean-Marie’s changes to the already well-established estate, the domaine has produced wines that are an iconic representation of Burgundy full of intensity and complexity, and critics rave that a range of Fourrier’s vintages will bear witness to the developing legacy of one of the Côte de Nuits’ most important domains.
