They 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux 1er Cru has an elegant and refined bouquet with pretty red cherries, raspberry preserve and rose petals scents – one of the most charming from Fourrier this year. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, quite tensile from the start and there is a spicy undercurrent that becomes more noticeable towards the finish. There is fine tension and energy here, with a potent peppery aftertaste. Good potential.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2040
