The perfect wine for a hot summer day. Not that we've had very many of them...This wine is like taking a deep breath of salty sea air while standing on a cliff that has tangerine trees growing on it. Ahhhhh.....
Very nice color and texture on this wine. I got the bottle as a gift, and it was most certainly a pleasant one! <a href="jensespen.blog.com">Jens Espen</a>
Very dry, yet very fruity palate, with citrus flavours. It is refreshing in any situation, and goes well with seafood or simply vegetable apetizers.
External Reviews for Château de Maligny Chablis Premiere Cru Fourchaume
The Durup family creates a Chardonnay of exceptional quality. Crisp acidity and flinty minerality characterize this great vintage.
Silky smooth, packed with vibrant acidity, layered with pear, mineral, stone and lemon flavors that come across as both powerful and subtle.
A broad style, ripe and balanced on the soft side. Light apple and honey flavors end with moderate length. Drink now.
This Premier Cru Chardonnay exhibits stunning green pear and apple fruits, with saline notes that sail through the medium-bodied finish.
If you’re a fan of the heavily oaked, buttery Chardonnay style, white Burgundy is probably not for you. Winemaker Jean-Paul Durup says this fine wine is “like a Chassagne-Montrachet, but without the oak.” Maligny has a very limited availability, so it would be wise to grab a case as soon as possible. Grapefruit and pear flavors on the palate complement a bright acidity. The finish is minerally, slightly grassy and very clean. Try this wine with stronger fish in buttery sauce, or with spicy food.
This delightful Chablis is golden in color, smooth rather than tangy, with hints of lemon, apples and just a bit of nuts. This is an ’06 that has shed the tropical notes of its youth and has taken on a texture of a somewhat polished, rounded exterior, all the while giving off pure Chablis nuances. Fairly opulent and ripe, this seduces with its supple texture and clean flavors. Medium-bodied, it kicks in with mineral, chalk and flint notes on the lingering finish. Pair this with Oysters Rockefeller or pan seared scallops.
This Chablis coats the palate with waves of complex flavors, including butter, lemon and spice. Ripe and elegant with a chewy earthy finish; this 1er Cru vineyard produces excellent fruit that is easily seen throughout this wine.
