90.5 Points Robert Parker
A 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux is the most forward and flattering wine in Fourrier’s cellar, yet still, I suspect, an excellent candidate for 10-15 years of aging. “Well, you don’t have to be clever to make good Champeaux,” jokes Fourrier. While less than a hundred yards separate this site from what he terms the more challenging terroir of Les Goulots, their inherent personalities are dramatically different. (Fourrier’s father routinely blended the two.) Aromas of black tea, brown spices, cherry and cranberry suggest sweetness and obvious advanced ripeness. A silky-smooth palate with refined spice and mineral nuances and generous fruit leads to a satisfying, and for 2005 and this cellar, surprisingly soft finish.
