Tasting and food pairings
The Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume 2015 remains the most floral of its appellation. It is a powerful, elegant, round and very aromatic wine. It develops citrus aromas, white flowers and fresh menthol. In the mouth notes of fresh fruit (peach) are present and accompanied by a side honey.
Suggestion of service: fish, white meats and cheeses.

- 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.
