Wine Critic Reviews for 2015 Jean-Marie Fourrier Latricieres Chambertin

(Latricières-Chambertin- Jean-Marie Fourrier) The 2015 Latricières-Chambertin chez Fourrier was also nicely recovered from its racking, but this is a more reserved wine out of the blocks than the last several in the lineup. The nose offers up a nicely cool fruit blend of cassis, dark berries, espresso, venison, dark soil tones and cedary new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely structured, with a good core, fine-grained tannins and a long, tangy and still very primary finish. This will blossom nicely, but it will need time. (Drink between 2027-2075)

Bright medium red. Pure but reticent aromas of strawberry, raspberry and stony minerality complicated by a mulch note. Penetrating and sharply delineated, with a restrained sweetness from the cool site. There's nothing fat or easy about this youthfully imploded grand cru, but it boasts terrific minerality and lift. Hardly a typical 2015 in terms of its texture, this wine will need time in bottle.

Here the nose offers a small step up in overall elegance with its nuanced nose of red and dark pinot fruit, cassis earth and a touch of underbrush. The racy and medium weight flavors feature markedly more finishing minerality and the same lovely balance on the youthfully austere finale. As is usually the case with Latricières, this refined if restrained effort emphasizes elegance over power.

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.

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.
