The baby Grand Cru, showing the silkiness and finesse of a top vineyard. This is a distinctive, overtly mineral wine with a lovely balance and sense of presence. Once again, this is one of the best value wines in the range. Drink 2008-2018.
Reviews & Scores
Good pale color. Reserved aromas of citrus peel and powdered stone. Rich, silky and fairly large-scaled but with a dense minerally character keeping the wine quite fresh. This boasts almost grand cru-like size and breadth. A powerful, minerally wine with a very long, rising finish that saturates the palate with dusty stone. William Fevre is the largest owner of Fourchaume, with 3.63 hectares of vines in eight parcels. The selection for this wine is based on tasting, but normally features mostly the oldest parcels. 90-93 points
