A fine Chablis from one of the region's best Premier Cru vineyards. This wine is beautifully fine, fresh and mineral but with a real depth and presence given by its quality site in Chablis. Like the region's Grand Cru vineyards, Fourchaume lies on a south-facing hillside of lime-rich clay marl, which allows the degree of extra ripeness to wrap citrus and vaguely tropical flavours around the classic mineral drive. Seeing fermentation in stainless steel and up to 18 months aging in mostly old oak, this is a superior wine in a classic style to drink soon or cellar.

Its Origins

In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Neal Martin (2014 vintage)

"The 2014 Chablis 1Er Cru Fourchaume, which spent 13-15 months on the lees, has a perfumed, floral bouquet with hints of rose petal infusing the citrus fruit lacked with dried pineapple. The palate is fresh and vibrant with good depth in the mouth. This feels harmonious and nicely poised, the salinity surfacing towards the sappy finish, and begging you back for another sip. This is an excellent, well-crafted Chablis Fourchaume from Jadot." Drink 2017 - 2027

90+/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer (2014 vintage)

"Bright, light yellow. Distinct spicy lift to the aromas of lemon and yellow peach, plus a hint of honeysuckle; smells a bit like Meursault on the Puligny side. Smooth, rich and dry, with a strong saline element contributing to its tautness and inner-mouth lift. The oak element is pronounced today but this wine has plenty of underlying citrus and stone fruits, and the density to merit patience." Drink 2018 - 2024
