Domaine William Fevre Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume 2015

Member Review by zufrieden:

Greenish yellow in color - almost Riesling-like in robe. Somewhat backward nose - neutral, and slow to open. Swirling brings out a note of acidity and spice with a touch of peach. Very clean, flinty chardonnay - characteristic of the region. Medium, cleansing finish - exactly what one would expect from a better Premier Cru. Excellent expression of the Chablis and good value to boot.

Founded in 1959, William Fèvre owns the largest array of Grands Crus Vineyards (15.2 hectares) and benefits from ideal conditions  to produce excellent Chablis. A category leader in the US, William Fèvre Domaine wines are farmed organically and biodynamically. Imported in the U.S. by Maisons and Domaines Henriot Americas along with sister Houses Champagne Henriot, Bouchard Pere and Fils (Burgundy) Chateau de Poncie (Fleurie) and Beaux Freres (Oregon). The history of wine-making in Chablis goes back to 865 AD with the development of vineyards by the monks of Saint-Martin-de-Tours on slopes facing the Serein River that cuts through that village. At that time and for the centuries that followed, the Chablis wine trade grew substantially thanks to the waterways that made it possible to supply Paris from Auxerre. With the French Revolution, estates changed hands but remained successful, and the total vineyard surface area reached 38,000 hectares. The end of the 19th century saw the coming of phylloxera in 1887, which wreaked havoc and reduced the vineyards to almost nothing. It was only at the beginning of the 1960s, when the Chablis vineyard surface area was less than 1,000 hectares, that Chablis wine production took off again with the growth of mechanization and setting up of anti-frost systems (another plague for the vines of the region). The current productive vineyard surface area is 4,580 hectares. Read less

Wheat, barley, and hops open on the nose, making the initial impression reminiscent of a brewery. Pineapple and citrus aromas soon take center stage, accompanied by honey dew melon and a hint of petroleum in the background. Asparagus emerges at 30 minutes to increase interest and intrigue as this fascinating wine evolves. The palate launches with a creamy, buttery core framed by a pleasant and lingering acidity. An encore of flavors on the back make for a varied and complex finish. The smooth entry opens at each sip to new tastes in the center, including asparagus, pineapple and citrus, followed by herbs and spices on the back. This is an elegant and balanced expression of Chablis, just gorgeous. Serves well at 60 degrees. 05/20/2011

A slightly more complex if perhaps slightly elegant nose of lemon rind shell fish seaweed and subtle dried floral notes is followed by pure intense and citrusy flavors that possess cuts-like-a-knife precision before culminating in a driving mineral-inflected and highly persistent finish. This is also a seriously impressive effort and I especially like the transparency and focus here. - Comments: Sweet spot Outstanding Burghound.

A very fresh version of Fourchaume, offering aromas of green tropical fruits and orange zest, plus a whiff of oyster shell reduction. Then big, ripe and quite dry, displaying an impressive combination of volume, definition and freshness. The orange z... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A very Chablis-like nose of tidal pool hints, green fruit and wet stone gives way to notably rich and generous flavors that remain very fresh and vibrant, all wrapped in an intense and sappy finish that is presently on the fruity side though I suspec...

This is almost as aromatically complex but the profile is completely different as here the nose runs away from the floral and more toward green fruit and minerality that is classic Chablis in character and this character is reflected by the rich and ...

The 2007 Chablis Fourchaume Vignoble de Vaulorent - from their top parcel in Vaulorent - delivers in spades the combination of fusil, chalk dust, and smoky notes that many locals relate to the smell of Kimmeridgian rock itself when broken apart.
