Chablis Chablis 1° Cru Fourchaume Blanc Domaine D. Dampt 75 2009
The Chateau de Maligny has been just about our favorite Chablis producer for many, many years. Their wines are always crisp and reflect the mineral and chalky soils of the Chablisien. At this price, it's *a great intro to the wonderful world of Chablis*.bq). Ripe green fruit flavors of plum and melon are backed by herb and stone accents. Drink now through 2013. - winespectator.com
External Reviews for Chablis Chablis 1° Cru Fourchaume Blanc Domaine D. Dampt 75
"Old vine" Chardonnay from a great producer and a profound vintage. Razor-sharp and lean, displaying classic mineral, quartz and vibrant acidity interwoven among green apples and pear.
This old-vine gem may be one of the best values in Chablis, with ripe fruit, offering melon, green apple and pear flavors, and crisp acidity.
Though the Petit Chablis is often overshadowed by its big brother AOC, Chablis, it would be a mistake to pass up the Maligny. The Chardonnay grapes used to make this well-balanced and racy white Burgundy are sourced from vineyards contiguous to some of the best vines in Chablis. Fresh and ripe, with effusive melon, pear and tart green apple flavors, this would be a winner with scallops, lobster or sushi.
From our favorite Chablis producer the Fourchame is the next step up for fans of the Maligny AOC or Petite Chablis. With amazing structure and complexity this is a wine built to last and yet it drinks so beautifully already! Bold tropical fruit is cut by bracing minerality and fresh acidity. After a few hours the wine begins to soften and the intense aromatics really start to show. Try this with seafood gumbo poached halibut or avocado-based vegetarian dishes.
A great buy in white Burgundy, this Petite Chablis sports lightly floral, honeyed notes of tart green apple with plenty of mineral zip, like mountain water filtered through granite. Finishes with a hint of citrus oil/grapefruit essence. Quality Chablis can get pretty expensive, but coming as it does from such a nice vintage, this affordable version gives you a good idea what this great region can accomplish with the Chardonnay grape.
This outstanding premier cru Chablis exemplifies the style that made their Chardonnays so popular. Bracing, crisp, clean acidity perfectly supports the more opulent, ripe apple and hazelnut flavors, while an undercurrent of mineral flintiness extends to the finish. A better companion to oysters simply does not exist.
This Chardonnay has it all; the steely, crispness and bright orchard fruits with tones of minerals and fresh herbs. Deep and rich. Works wonderfully with steamed mussels, broiled lobster with a melted garlic/butter sauce and shrimp scampi.
