About Domaine Jean-Marie Fourrier
The young, but wise, Jean-Marie Fourrier, who took over at Domaine Fourrier in 1994, makes perfumed, aromatically precise Burgundies in a traditional fashion, using limited new oak and bottling his wines later than most of his neighbors.

Medium red. Slightly high-toned aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, violet and licorice. The high-toned quality carries through in the mouth, where the sappy-sweet black and blue fruit flavors are complicated by saline soil tones. Less creamy than some of Fourrier's 2009 premier crus, this very firmly structured, long wine will demand patience. The lovely lift on the back end suggests that it has the energy for a long evolution. Fourrier now gets all his corks from a single supplier in Corsica, who simply steams them and does not use a peroxide solution.
