the week’s second from fourrier

Update 5.10.2007(6.10.2006)billn

the grinchI’m hoping that the remnants of this one will taste a little better tonight…

2001 Fourrier, Chambolle-Musigny Gruenchers try to find this wine...
Medium-pale ruby-red colour. The nose starts out a little dark and chocolatey; time takes away the darker elements to be replaced with slightly volatile, high-toned estery notes and a faint core of tight red fruit – not so appealing. The palate has good texture and mouthwatering acidity. The intensity belies the colour and the finish is quite long but rather metallic. On day one I have to say that I’m a little disappointed.

Day two the nose is a little more estery and the palate remains consistent. Disappointing – Rebuy – No

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Hi Bill,
    I agree with your note on this one. However recent 01 Gevrey Champeaux was far superior, and certainly none of the funk of the Gruenchers.
    Cheers,

    Hi Kent – also the CSJ was certainly a rebuy, if a little oakier than I would have expected. Shame about the Chambolle though as I remember a bottle of the ‘straight’ villages was really brilliant about a year-or-so ago.
    Cheers

    Hi Bill,
    Yes I agree re the Villages VV – I have consumed half a case of those to date. Lovely stuff!
    Cheers,
    Kent
