92-94 Points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Combe Aux Moines is very promising indeed, unfurling in the glass with notes of cherry, cassis, dried rose petal, loamy forest floor and a very subtle touch of new wood. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, broad-shouldered and deep, with fine-grained but youthfully chewy tannins and juicy acids. After the Clos Saint-Jacques, this is the most serious and multidimensional of Fourrier's Gevrey-Chambertin premiers crus, and it will demand a few years of bottle age." 1/19
92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Combe Aux Moines 1er Cru is tasted from the regular blend matured in oak, although readers should note that Fourrier is trialing some of this cuvÃ©e aged in amphora that may or may not be added. It has an attractive bouquet with vivacious Morello cherries, wild strawberry and orange rind aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe fruit, quite spicy with white pepper and touches of sage and oregano livening up the finish. It is already a very promising Gevrey, so I am fascinated to see whether the amphora component ends up being used." 1/19
91-94 Points, Allen Meadows' Burghoung: "A brooding nose consists of essence of plum and black cherry scents that are cut with notes of warm earth and the sauvage. The rich, medium-bodied and reasonably concentrated flavors possess good power and muscle on the mouth coating and serious finale. This well made and youthfully austere effort will need at least 5 to 7 years first and potentially reward up to 15." 1/19
92-93 Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar: "The 2017 Combes aux Moines had not yet been assembled in tank, as the malo was later here for this wine. The wine was showing very well on the nose, wafting from the glass in a fine blend of red and black cherries, grilled meats, dark soil tones, woodsmoke, mustard seed and cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and promising, but still a bit grumpy and not yet precise, with fine-grained tannins and very good backend energy. This still needs some elevage to snap into place, but will do so with a bit more time and should prove to be excellent. 2027-2065." 12/18
