Louis Jadot Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume 2018
Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume is one of the best known and finest of the Chablis 1er Crus with a typically fresh, steely and mineral character married with the lovely weight and intensity that the best 1er Cru vineyards deliver. 2018 has, in short, been probably the most successful vintage since 2015, with some growers harping back to 1990 and even 1947! After a soft pressing, part of the juice is fermented in "double barrels" of 406 litres produced by our cooperage Cadus. The other part is vinified and aged in stainless steel vats. Aging usually lasts 13 to 15 months on fine lies before bottling. The Louis Jadot Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume is a very elegant Chablis bursting with white flowers and stone fruits aromas. Round and subtle on the palate, this wine has a long finish with a stony character and a fresh acidity that leaves you wanting more.
