Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Jean-Marie Fourrier's 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St Jacques (labelled with "Vieilles Vignes") has a very pure bouquet, almost coulis-like fruit, dark cherries intermingling with blueberry and light marmalade scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity, quite sensual in the mouth with good depth on the finish. Perhaps what it is missing is that peacock’s tail—it sort of ends in the wrong key. There is great potential here though not best in the (Clos Saint-Jacques) show this year. Like a television with its contrast turned up a bit too high when compared to its peers. Tasted September 2017.
