Domaine Fourrier Gevrey Chambertin Les Goulots 2013


SKU 1389


The "Goulots" vineyard sits in the northernmost corner of Gevrey high on the hill overlooking the village. The one-third hectare parcel owned by Fourrier was planted in 1966. This wine sits immediately next to both "Les Champeaux" and "Combe Aux Moines" and tends to be very four-square in its structure, with a dense core of blackberry fruit.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru les Goulots has great transparency on the nose: real delineation here, almost aloof, but intriguing. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. This is a more masculine premier cru: structured and linear, but there is fine weight and intensity on the finish with a dash of white pepper on the aftertaste. Excellent.
