2013 Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin VV

Fourrier's Gevrey exists on a special plane.

It shares this space with few other bottles - Roumier Chambolle, Mugneret-Gibourg Vosne-Romanée, etc.

Every year, we wait for our allocation and then it disappears. I can remember having to brutally cut back orders for the 2012s that we offered last February. It will likely be the same deal today.

The perennial theme with Fourrier is pristine expression, precise finesse and an ultra-seductive mineral-laden texture. All this is amplified in 2013. Fourrier's 2013s are captivating in the silky, sleek and pulverized rock minerality.

There's a sense of flamboyance and gloss to Fourrier, but there's plenty of substance and deep complexity to back it up. This tension between gloss and hyper-detailed transparency is part of the magic of Fourrier. Few wines delight the senses from so many angles. The 2013 Gevrey is a powerful example of this mastery at work.

Fourrier's Gevrey is a wine that I watch serious collectors stock up on every vintage. The combination of straight up deliciousness with the breeding and clarity is hard to resist. I created special 4-pack pricing because this is a bottle that you'll want to track for the next decade.
