Scores and tasting notes
It is always a pleasure to revisit the wines of Jean-Marie Fourrier, especially those amidst their drinking plateaus. The 1999 Clos St. Jacques is drinking beautifully at the moment. It has an understated bouquet that needs coaxing, eventually revealing lovely leather and musky scents that complement the ebbing brambly red fruit. The palate is well-balanced and perhaps not as precise as the 1999 Clos St. Jacques from Rousseau, but it is very harmonious and composed with a crisp, slight tart finish. A point. Tasted June 2013.
