Domaine Nathalie & Gilles Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2018
Nathalie and Gilles Fevre grow their Chardonnay vines from parcels situated beside the village of Fontenay-Près-Chablis, at the very heart of Chablis’ vineyards. On high plains or steep hills, all the domaine’s Chablis grow on stony Kimmeridgien limestone soils. Most of their vineyards are between 15 and 20 years old, though the vines which produce grapes for the 1er cru Fourchaume were planted between 1942 and 1989.
Our Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume (one of the most noted Chablis 1ers crus) originates from vineyards situated on long slopes facing the sunrise, allowing rapid soil warm up which aids quality maturing.
This Premier Cru is long and rich, with fruity flavours and mineral notes.
Good matches will include cooked oysters and fish in sauce. There more open variations are a wonderful accompaniment to local specialty of ham in Chablis (Jambon au Chablis) or with recipes with curry.
