Chablis Fourchaume

Chablis Fourchaume
Premier Cru
100% Chardonnay

Chablis is located in the northern part of Burgundy, half way between Dijon and Paris. The vineyard size is 3 225 ha. The Premier Cru vineyards represent 20% of the total size of the Burgundy Premiers Crus. There are 40 "climats" of Premiers Crus among which Fourchaume.

The continental climate (very cold in winter and hot in the summer with frosts in spring) together with the marly limestone soils mould the unique character of Chablis wines.

This juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks (50%) and in wooden barrels like all our Grands Crus from the Côte d'Or area. The wine is then aged in barrels during 15-18 months before bottling (usually about 30% new oak).

Pale in colour with a silvery rim. The nose is floral, with notes of honeysuckle and lime leaf. The palate is taut but shows the vintage's typical balance of opulent ripeness and lively acidity. It will match perfectly all sorts of cuisine including vegetable, fish, poultry ...

This wine can be drunk quite young but can also age easily up to 10-15 years in very good conditions of temperature and humidity.
