Over the past decade, the wines from Domaine Fourrier of Gevrey-Chambertin have become so allocated that some restaurant wine programs might only receive a few bottles each year—many don’t even get the opportunity to purchase. This special bottling is sourced from vines with an average age of 80 years—many were planted as far back as 1929. Fourrier’s legendary wines are a pure expression of place with incredible energy and balance rarely found in other wines.

The Wine Advocate (Neal Martin) – Rated 90-92 Points
“The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has a pure and fragrant bouquet with red rose petals infusing the vivid red cherry and fresh strawberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, quite tight and reserved on the entry with a keen line of acidity, correct and linear towards the fresh finish that is uninteresting in giving much away at the moment. Afford this 3-4 years in bottle to get the most from it.”

Burghound (Allen Meadows) – Rated 89-91 Points
(from Les Champs Perriers in Brochon) “There is enough reduction to mask the fruit but there is good freshness and verve to the more intense, mineral-driven and muscular flavors that possess a sleek mouth feel thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins. I very much like the overall depth as well as the fine persistence on the well-balanced finish. Recommended. Drink: 2022+ “

Vinous Media (Stephen Tanzer) – Rated 89-90 Points
“Medium-deep red. Deep plum and red cherry aromas are lifted by spice and mineral nuances. Juicy, shapely and deep; more delineated and filled in than the Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echézeaux, which nearly every vintage strikes me as more Chambolle in character (these vines are situated on the southern edge of Gevrey-Chambertin). Finishes with firm, integrated tannins and very good length.”
