  • The most textbook nose of ocean and oyster shell I have ever smelled in a Chablis. Lemon, lemon curd, salt and slate on a fairly rich palate. Wonderful acid and minerality, long, salty, quenching. Really singing.

  • Youthful but accessible nose offers up appealing aromas of peach, oyster shell, and an underlying earthy tone. Full bodied for a Chablis with good density to the fruit and floral flavors. Saline finish with suggestion of oak.

  • Medium straw color. First slightly reticent, opening up with some air. Fascinating notes of wet stone, citrus, white flowers, oystershell, steel, also some white peach. It‘s medium-full bodied, with excellent mid-palate persistence, pretty high acidity cutting through the slight creaminess and a touch of phenolic adstringency. Long finish with a saline mineral note. A stunning, complete and very fascinating Fourchaume. This should age beautifully for many years. (94+)
