    • Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaume" 2018 - James Suckling - USA - 91/100

      Some flinty nuances of reduction that lead to a lime and green-mango nose with a gently grassy edge. The palate has a smooth, crisp and nice, chalky feel to the finish.

    • Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaume" 2017 - Burghound.com - USA - October 2019 - 90/100An airy and cool nose features plenty of classic Chablis character with its combination of quinine, tidal pool and citrus-inflected white orchard fruit scents. There is both fine volume and richness to the utterly delicious and nicely vibrant medium weight flavors that ooze a subtle minerality before culminating in a clean, very dry and saline finish. This ever-so-mildly warm effort is really quite good and while it doesn't enjoy the sheer class of the two grands crus, it offers almost as much depth. 90/2021+
    • Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaume" 2017 - James Suckling - February 2019 - 93/100Attractively exotic fruit aromas with an air of striking purity and freshness. The palate delivers a steely resolve with a superb core of fresh and fine acidity, carrying long and deep into the dry, crisp finish. Great wine. So fresh. Try from 2022.
    • Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2016 - 89/100 - The World of Fine Wine - March 2018Vibrant, ripe color. Good athletic energy; balanced flavors of fresh yet mature citrus fruits interweaved with minerals. Good. - Michael Edwards
    • Chablis Premier Cru "Fourchaume" 2016 - James Suckling - February 2018 - 92/100I love this wine's exuberant fruit salad and floral nose. On the palate, it's brimming with fruit. And then the fresh minerality charges through on the very clean finish. Drink or hold.
    • Simonnet-Febvre Chablis 1er Cru « Fourchaume » 2015 - 93/100 - James Suckling - April 2017

      Aromas of oyster shells and dried apples with peaches and stones. Full-bodied, tangy and salty with fantastic length and intensity. Goes on for a long

    • Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2014 - 89/100 - Wine Spectator - May 2017Shows some flesh for the vintage, along with peach, melon and apple flavors. With a hint of saltiness on the moderately long finish. Drink now through 2020.
