Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaumes 2014

Chablis Fourchaumes
1er Cru 2014

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 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks (demi-muids) during 10 months.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Refreshing aromas of citrus fruit and honey mixed with a hint of vanilla. Delicate minerality. Complex with a tight texture. Fresh fruit combination. Precise and well-integrated minerality. Long and elegant finish.

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