Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaumes 2012

Chablis Fourchaumes
1er Cru 2012

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 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced very pure white wines with beautiful aromas. Aging in oak (demi-muids) during 8 months.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Refreshing aromas of green fruit with aniseed character. Hint of vanilla. Delicate minerality. Tight, crisp and well-balanced. Very pure fruit. Precise and well-integrated minerality and acidity. Long and generous finish.

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