William Fèvre | Burgundy, France
Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume 2013
Wine & Spirits
More than half of this lot ferments in stainless steel, the rest in older oak barrels, all of it coming together for ten months in stainless where this wine began to meld into a clean, linear white with tart apple acidity. The structure shows the wine’s finesse, though the flavors are hard to reach for now, tightly drawn around the scent of lees, wheat sheaf and the mineral feel of spring water. This should open after several years of age.
