The 2013 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume has a slightly austere granite, undergrowth and sea-spray bouquet that is well defined and displays commendable vigor. The palate is fresh and poised, subtle blood orange and apricot notes emerging in the mouth that maintains fine acidity and a long, quite elegant finish. This is very fine for the vintage.

More than half of this lot ferments in stainless steel, the rest in older oak barrels, all of it coming together for ten months in stainless where this wine began to meld into a clean, linear white with tart apple acidity. The structure shows the wine’s finesse, though the flavors are hard to reach for now, tightly drawn around the scent of lees, wheat sheaf and the mineral feel of spring water. This should open after several years of age.

This white is all about balance, lending a seamless impression that envelops the flavors of apple, yellow plum and oyster shell. Long and refreshing on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 200 cases imported.
