Seven older red Burgundies


JF Mugnier Chambolle Musigny 2003 Burgundy, France
Ripe and sweet with bold, textured sweet cherry fruit backed up by spicy warmth. Rich and broad with nice silkiness and good structure. Burly yet still attractive. Atypical because of the hot vintage. 92/100


Fourrier Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St Jacques 1998 Burgundy, France
Lively, fresh, juicy and bright with lovely raspberry and cherry fruit. Nice purity and finesse with hints of soy saue and some fine spicy notes. There’s also a steeped cherry character, a warm mid-palate, and good acidity. Really attractive. 94/100


Fourrier Chambolle Musigny 2001 Burgundy, France
