Wine Critic Reviews:

Dark red cherry, plum and spice notes flesh out in the 2012 Chambolle-Musigny Les Echanges. Beautifully resonant in the glass, the 2012 is a bit richer and fatter than the wines Jean-Marie Fourrier makes under his domaine label, but all the elements are in the right place. Above all else, the 2012 Echanges is immediate, racy and drop-dead gorgeous. Fourrier adds that the Echanges is a bit bigger than his own wines because the grower deleafed and Fourrier did not. Regardless, this is a fabulous wine.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Fourrier: Domaine Fourrier is located in the region of Gevrey-Chambertin and is one of Burgundy's finest estates when it comes to fruity, intense and delicious wines. With an almost century-long history of success, they show no signs of slowing down and seem to be ready to prove themselves in the face of new competition. A single sampling is all you need to discover the true potential of a fine Fourrier bottle. The red and dark berries simply explode with flavor, as though you're biting into a watermelon and experiencing that juicy burst. The mineral baseline keeps it all grounded and well-structured, while the textures are smoother than the finest silk. Unlike many luxurious reds, Fourrier wines don't aim to overwhelm you with raw power as much as impress your tastebuds with subtle and precise flavors, like a virtuosic harp tune.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
