Ratings and Tasting Notes:
From the Domaine: Spread over 115 ha, the Fourchaume is the biggest first cru of Chablis. Situated on the left of the Grands Crus, he has an excellent exposure South/South-East and is generally ripe among the firsts. The wine is vinified on oak barrels of 1 to 5 wines with regular "batonnage". Doing so, we move the lees and enrich the wine without letting the woody aromas get the upper hand. After 12 months ageing, the wine is bottled with a light filtration. At the same time supple, powerful and very delicate, this wine shows aromas of fruit and a great minerality on finish in the mouth. To serve at 13°C with roasted langoustines for example.
