Fourchaume comes entirely from the Vaulorent lieu-dit, which abuts grand cru Les Preuses. Though rich and opulent in texture, it retains freshness due to its high altitude, along with a juicy, savory character. (BS)
A ripe and agreeably fresh nose offers up notes of pear, apple, white flower and discreet ocean breeze nuances. There is impressive size, weight and richness to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a highly seductive, even slightly oily mouth feel yet there is plenty of punch to keep the finish well-balanced.
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)
(from a crop level of 35 hectoliters per hectares; made in 40% oak, none new): 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. Drinking Window 2017 - 2028
