Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2017
This very elegant Chablis is bursting with white flowers and stone fruits aromas. Round and subtle on the palate, this wine has a long finish with a stony character and a fresh acidity that leaves you wanting more.
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.
The 2017 vintage was very dry, but was relatively cool. Luckily, the frost damage was minimal and a combination of moderate day temperatures and cool evenings resulted in relatively good yield and wonderful flavour concentration.
After a soft pressing, part of the juice is fermented in "double barrels" of 406 litres produced by our cooperage Cadus. The other part is vinified and aged in stainless steel vats. Aging usually lasts 13 to 15 months on fine lies before bottling.
