fourrier 2007 morey st.denis clos solon and brute force…


After the 2005 Goulots, I couldn’t resist attacking another of these. The only real thing to separate the two bottles was a cork that kicked and screamed not to be freed from the neck of the bottle – indeed the first half of the cork completely disintegrated in protest. Fortunately the last half came out with a sigh, and in one piece, so I didn’t have to filter the wine!

    So Bill, how was the wine? Any good? Better than the cork?

      Same as the linked one – except the cork
      Didn’t I say that already? 😉

    Bill, The “Brute Force” in the title fooled me into thinking you were referring to the wine itself:-). I have had several ’07’s from Fourrier, Roumier and a few others with the exact same cork experience. I have had to “filter” one or two of them. It seems really abnormal to occur so often in a single vintage! Have you noticed this as well with other ’07 Burgs?

      Hi KMM
      I hadn’t made that connection – I think I’d just put it down to bad luck – for instance I did have that run of 6 (or was it 5?) corked bottles last year. As my German friends like to say, sometimes ‘sh1t happens…’
