  • Robert Parker has said of Chablis Premier Cru "Fourchaume" that this is a Premier Cru many feel should be elevated to Grand Cru status. The wine has a striking power and elegance which is quite exceptional. This is gained from elevated southeastern facing slopes exposing the vineyard to a great deal of sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures than any other Premier Cru vineyard.

Press review
    • Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaume" 2018 - Wine Enthusiast - USA - April 2020 - 90/100

      A whiff of creamy, toasted hazelnut on the shy nose turns into full-blown, creamy vanilla on the palate of this wine. This works well since all of that oaky generosity is countered by lemony brightness. This wine is all about smooth, mellow creaminess accented by lemony hightlights.  (Anne Kriebehl MW)
