Very aromatic bouquet, combining fruity and floral notes. Nicely elegant palate that blends power, raciness and roundness.
Wine Spectactor (WS)
A linear, focused version, sporting citrus, beeswax, chive and subtle honey flavors. The vivid acidity is cleansing on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 200 cases imported.
A ripe and agreeably fresh nose reflects mild exotic influences to the iodine, quinine and dried yellow orchard fruit aromas. The exceptionally rich flavors are suave and seductive, indeed the word opulent comes to mind, all wrapped in a generously proportioned, round and relatively forward finish.

The 2017 Chablis Fourchaume 1er Cru does not come from estate fruit but three contracted growers. It has a clean and precise honeysuckle scented bouquet, very understated in style. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, modest weight in the mouth but it is just missing the precision of say, William Fèvre’s Mont de Milieu on the finish.

The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume (négoce) offers up aromas of lemon oil, white flowers and oyster shell. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and delicately glossy, with tangy acids, an open-knit, giving core and a bright, saline finish. This is an immediate, charming Fourchaume that is already showing well. – William Kelley – 30-04-2019
