"The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has a finely chiseled, precise bouquet with perfumed red cherry and crushed strawberry scents loaded with minerals. This is one of the most transparent Clos Saint-Jacques that I have tasted from Fourrier. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe tannins on the entry. This is very focused, maybe a little leaner than the 2015 (recently tasted) but with a scintillating finish of white pepper-tinged red fruit that lingers in the mouth for 45 seconds. Superb. [Readers should note that this may include part of the cuvée currently being matured in amphora. Trials will begin in early 2019 to assess whether that will be done, (VM, 93-95 points)".
