FOURRIER GEVREY CHAMBERTIN 'CLOS SAINT JACQUES' 1ER CRU 2016
93-95 Points - Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media: "Bright dark red. Knockout ethereal nose combines raspberry, licorice, rose petal, lavender, wild mint and spices. Densely packed but juicy, suave and a bit youthfully imploded, conveying an almost magical impression of weightlessness. Cool and reserved but not at all hard, this fully ripe but reticent wine spreads out to saturate the palate, showing a lighter touch than the Combe Aux Moines. Displays a captivating restrained sweetness from start to long finish. As the lower part of his Clos Saint-Jacques parcel was frosted (production for this premier cru was cut by 30% in '16), Fourrier chose not to make a separate Cuvée Centennaire."
