2018, La Chablisienne, CHABLIS 1er Cru Fourchaume

The 2018 Chablis Fourchaume 1er Cru, from 25-year-old vines and aged in stainless steel vat and wood, has a slightly more floral bouquet than the Vaillons, featuring honeysuckle, pressed yellow flowers and tropical scents of passion fruit and pineapple. The palate is rounded and honeyed in texture, quite rich and generous, with the tropical notes continuing (passion fruit and guava). 88 Neal Martin

This is ripe to the point of displaying a touch of the exotic with its array of pear, white peach citrus, mineral reduction and wisps of seashell and ocean scents. The opulent and richer flavours possess a caressing mouth feel before delivering a vibrant and citrusy finale that once again offers perfectly good but not truly special depth. 89-91 Burghound.
