The 2015 Fourchaume from Domaine William Fèvre is flat out delicious, jumping from the glass in a vibrant blend of pear, apple, chalky soil tones, lime blossoms and just a whisper of pastry cream in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and generous on the attack, with a fine core, very good focus and grip and very impressive backend mineral drive and lift on the long finish. 2016-2030.
The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Fourchaume comes from eight parcels on marn soils within the lieu-dit of Vaulorent. It has a delightful bouquet with scents of fresh pear, a hint of marzipan; it is sweet and charming while retaining Chablis-like austerity and poise. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, well poised with a touch of salinity developing towards the harmonious finish. This is another excellent wine from William Fevre. (NM)
Medium yellow. Aromas of honey, spices and smoke. Opulent and thick but with lovely tension and smoky minerality too. This extract-rich wine has the power, if not the finesse, of a grand cru. Really saturates the mouth on the very long, saline back end. (ST)
Reticent lime nose with perfumed notes. The rich, sleek and concentrated palate demonstrates a lively acidity, with flavours of citrus and green apple. The taut body has ample grip and the finish has a mineral, grapefruity character that is lacking a little in opulence. A classic and somewhat severe Fourchaume. (SB)
