RATINGS

91Wine Enthusiast

Ripe and creamy in apple and pear fruitiness...balanced, with fruit and and bright steeliness working well together.

90Burghound.com

...floral with top notes of freshly sliced lemon and mineral reduction nuances. There is better volume as well as mid-palate concentration to the medium weight flavors that coat the palate with dry extract that also serves to buffer the moderately firm acid spine on the saline and delicious finish.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Chablis, Fourchaume

Fourchaume is a Premier Cru vineyard located just to the north of Chablis’ Grand Crus. The 84-acre hillside parcel is considered one of the best of the Chablis Premier Crus, and some people feel it should be elevated to Grand Cru. Within Fourchaume there are several important climats, or sub-parcels, including Vaupulent, Cote de Fontenay, L’Homme Mort and Vaulorent. The Fourchaume soil is primarily a composition of limestone, clay and fossilized oyster shells.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, Chablis Premier Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
