Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaumes 2008

Chablis Fourchaumes
1er Cru 2008

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Limestone

Site : This Premier Cru of Chablis is located at the northern border of the Grands Crus area on the right side of the Serein River.

The Vintage 2008 : After a very warm spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery has produced very pure white wines, well-balanced with fantastic acidity. Aging in demi-muids.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Refreshing floral fragrances mixed with grapefruit aromas. Delicate vanilla note and beautiful minerality. Well-balanced and linear. Beautiful texture and well-integrated acidity. Long mineral finish with plenty of citrus fruit.

Food pairing : Pâté, seascallop, turbot, poularde in a creamy sauce as well as many goat cheeses.
