Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume 2014
The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume is located in Vaulorent, eight parcels that are selected for two different bottlings, the other labeled "Vaulorent" (see separate note). The nose is backward and sultry, clearly not wishing to come out and play like the other Premier Crus. The palate is fresh and mineral on the entry with just a touch of bitter lemon. It is nicely balanced, perhaps not quite as long as the Chablis Vaulorent, but lingers nicely in the mouth.
