Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques 2016 Domaine Fourrier
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques is brilliant, unfurling in the glass with a multifaceted bouquet in which aromas of raspberries, orange rind and cassis mingle with nuances of peony, spice and subtle grilled meat. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and pure, with a deep, multidimensional mid-palate that's framed by satiny tannins and juicy acids, concluding with a long, fragrant finish. The exquisite textural elegance that Fourrier routinely achieves with this site does not conceal the wine's underlying power and concentration.
Bright mid crimson. Very broad on the nose. Lifted and energetic with quite sharp elbows to it on the palate but a slightly smudgy, indistinct nose. Transparent. Great combination of delicacy and integrity. Still a bit chewy on the end. Peacock’s tail on the end.
