Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaumes 2015

Chablis Fourchaumes
1er Cru 2015

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 2015 : After a cold winter and a mild spring, the weather conditions in summer (with important differences of temperature between day and night from August onwards) were ideal and enabled a perfect maturation of the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop aromas of exotic or white orchard fruit mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks (demi-muids) during 9 months.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Intense aromas of ripe white orchard fruit (peach) and honey mixed with a hint of vanilla. Delicate minerality. Complex with a coating texture. Very pure fruit combination. Long aftertaste with a stony finish.

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