Winemaker's Notes

Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume has a very aromatic bouquet, combining fruity and floral notes. The nicely elegant palate blends power, raciness and roundness. Made with 100% Chardonnay.

Pairs well with fish, seafood and shellfish either grilled or in a cream sauce. Also great with poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.

Critical Acclaim

"Fevre's 2010 Chablis Fourchaume boasts gorgeous aromatics, vibrant acidity and chiseled fruit. In other words, it is classic Chablis. In 2010, the Fourchaume is notable for its intensity and layered, focused finish. A refined frame houses serious concentration and depth to match an elegant personality that captures the best elements of the vintage. This is a gorgeous wine, and a true standout. Anticipated maturity: 2013+."
93 Points

"Fresh, fruity aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, peach and fresh herbs. Rich and lively but a bit youthfully disjointed, with a slight hard edge from the grapefruity acidity. Dense and brisk but not yet revealing its personality. This fruit also comes from the favored Vaulorent portion of Fourchaume, but Fevre's Vaulorent bottling represents a selection of the "densest" fruit.
Range: 89-91"
