Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaumes 2013

Chablis Fourchaumes
1er Cru 2013

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 2013 : After a long winter and a gloomy spring, the summer was warm and sunny but with intervals of violent hail storms. The harvest took place in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The difficult weather conditions at the beginning of the year and the hail storms have considerably impacted the yields in most of the wine regions but quality is there. The white wines are tense with citrus fruit aromas and a well-shaped acidity. Partial aging in oak casks (demi-muids) during 8 months.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Refreshing aromas of exotic fruit mixed with a hint of vanilla. Delicate minerality. Well-balanced on tight texture. Very pure fruit. Precise and well-integrated minerality. Long and elegant finish.

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