Winemaker's Notes

Very aromatic bouquet, combining fruity and floral notes. Nicely elegant palate that blends power, raciness and roundness.

Food pairings: Fish, seafood and shellfish, grilled or in a cream sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.

Critical Acclaim

"The Fevre 2007 Chablis Fourchaume – coming entirely from the Vaulorent (behind Les Preuses, and entirely distinct from the rest of Fourchaume) – offers an elegance and a mineral intrigue that I have never witnessed from fruit grown in the Ur-Fourchaume. Scents of sea breezes, chalk dust, and bitter-sweet floral perfume set the tone for an impression of remarkable buoyancy and of flavors that seem to waft or wash over the palate. Yet while there is caress to the finish, there is underlying refreshment from lusciously ripe citrus, and a sense of invigoration in the wine’s saline and citrus zest residues. I suspect this will be best enjoyed somewhat sooner than the very best Fevre 2007s, perhaps within 4-6 years. As with Montmains, there exists a corresponding non-estate bottling – from contract fruit grown in all four sites that are allowed to trade as "Fourchaume" – whose sheer generosity of fruit recommends it for early consumption, but which is not in the same league as the estate bottling. To avoid confusion – and since these non-estate cuvees are not sold in the U.S. – I have refrained from publishing a review. "

"Pale, green-tinged color. Reticent nose hints at spearmint. Intensely flavored and rich but less complex and elegant than the Montee de Tonnerre; a bit more obvious. Here the wine's breadth and considerable fat mask its definition and underlying minerality. But there's plenty of richness and power here. Range: 89-92"
