Category: Dry white
If you like: Textured and powerfull 1er Cru Chablis.
Taste like: One of the finest 1er Cru in Chablis from the great 2015 vintage. Planted on rich soils with more alluvial soil, intense Fourchaume’s wines are often said they should be elevated to the Grand Cru level. Clotilde’s 2015 Fourchaume shows floral notes, citrus and subtle almond paste notes. On the palate this wine is powerful and quite textured with ripe white flesh fruits. The finish is long and driven with a lot of finesse. Unoaked.
