Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaumes 2010

Olivier Leflaive

From one of the most well known vineyards in Chablis, the Olivier Leflaive 1er Cru Fourchaumes is a quintessential Chablis true to it’s nature.

Terroir: 1er Cru Fourchaume is one of the largest of the Premiere Cru vineyards of Chablis and is located just to the west of the Grand Crus. Though large in size, the vineyard has a consistent pitch and a south to southwest exposure.

Vinification: Grapes are handpicked and undergo a vigorous selection. The wine is tank fermented and aged in stainless steel. A small percentage of the blend is aged in oak in an effort to tame the sometimes aggressive acidity levels. Lees are stirred often.

    "While this wine has the crispness of Chablis, it also has weight and concentration. The bright green-apple flavor is underpinned by a sense of minerality. Nervy, tense yet fruity, this can age for 2–3 years."
