Scents of rose petals, raspberries, cherries and blood orange, framed by a discreet application of new oak, introduce Fourrier's 2018 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru, a full-bodied, deep and concentrated wine with a voluminous core of lively, even sappy fruit. Long and fine-boned, this is one of Fourrier's most elegant wines this year, as well as the most incipiently profound.
