Very aromatic bouquet, combining fruity and
floral notes. Nicely elegant palate that blends power, raciness and roundness.
Fish, seafood and shellfish, grilled or in a cream
sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream
"A beautifully balanced wine, mixing an intense, nervy, crisp fruit character with light wood flavors and the most piercing acidity. This is a serious wine, for aging over 3-5 years while retaining impeccable fruit."
"The Fevre 2008 Chablis Fourchaume smells of lemon and blood orange, ocean breeze and crushed chalk, leading to an especially bright, zesty, slightly sharp, but bracing and admirably long palate impression. Bitter citrus pip and rind notes as well as rather adamantly stony minerality are perfectly integrated. This might well gain some sense of richness with a few years in bottle and should be worth following for at least half a dozen. Expect it to perform well for at least a half dozen years."
The Wine Advocate
"Pale, green-tinged yellow. Smoky and ripe on the nose, with hints of honey and menthol. A peachy fruit bomb on the palate, much rounder than the Montee de Tonnerre but with the vintage's firm acidity. Can't quite match the Montee de Tonnerre for class but finishes quite long, with lingering peachy fruit. This will need time in bottle to express itself fully.
