The 2018 Chablis Fourchaume 1er Cru is superb. Rich and ample with tremendous structure, the 2018 possesses terrific depth and textural resonance throughout the finish. Orchard fruit, lemon confit, almond and menthol infuse the 2018 with notable complexity and intensity. Textured, oily and deep with a bit of a savory edge, the 2018 has so much to offer. (AG)
As Fourchaume is one of the warmer premier cru microclimates, I expected to find the vintage’s signature a bit more prominent in examples from this vineyard, but this is not the case with the Fourchaume from Domaine William Fèvre! All of the fruit for this bottling also hails from Vaulorent, which gives the bouquet more mineral precision in its expression of apple, pear, wet stone minerality, lime peel, dried flowers and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows off beautiful mid-palate depth, with a lovely mineral undertow, bright, snappy acids and great focus and grip on the long and complex finish. Great juice.
In much the same fashion as the Les Lys the nose is overtly floral in character with background nuances of oyster shell, iodine and wet stone. The impressively rich, concentrated and powerful medium weight plus flavors possess excellent intensity that carries over to the complex, long, dry and focused finale. This is, in a word, terrific.
