Château de Maligny Chablis Premiere Cru Fourchaume 2009
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.....Add winemaker's notes

Very dry, yet very fruity palate, with citrus flavours. It is refreshing in any situation, and goes well with seafood or simply vegetable apetizers.
Fruity nose or quinte, pear, toasted bread. Concentrated in mooth, still some acidity to provide balance with some apple marmelade and candied apricot.
External Reviews for Château de Maligny Chablis Premiere Cru Fourchaume
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.
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.
An honest Chardonnay from France's renowned Chablis appellation. Elegantly structured, with citrus notes and a classic mineral element naturally designed for seafood.
Lovely and fresh, this wine is chock full of brisk, flowery acidity and lovely fresh picked apple flavors. There is a pronounced mineral dimension to this wine, which sets the stage nicely for its autumn-fresh fruit flavors and aromas.
A broad style, ripe and balanced on the soft side. Light apple and honey flavors end with moderate length. Drink now.
If youandrsquo;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 andldquo;like a Chassagne-Montrachet, but without the oak.andrdquo; 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.
Silky smooth, packed with vibrant acidity, layered with pear, mineral, stone and lemon flavors that come across as both powerful and subtle.
