Domaine Fourrey Chablis Premier Cru Cote de Lechet 2017
Very attractive ripe, stone fruit characters on the nose, with lovely mineral balance and saline precision beneath - some spice, cardamom, ripe, buttery apple and pear notes. The palate is very fine with a ripe core continuing the stone fruit theme, with hints of vanilla, cardamom, and some lees-ageing evident, overlaying the balancing refined acidity provided by a citrus / green apple edge. A ripe yet refined minerally persistence round out this impressive Chablis 1er Cru.
Jean-Luc Fourrey and his sister Marie are the fourth generation and driving force behind this exciting, emerging producer, marrying traditional and modern techniques on the quality stony slopes of the Côte de Lechet. It is no surprise that in just over a decade Fourrey has emerged as one of the best producers in Chablis. An exciting, up-and-coming venture – and an estate to watch. Each year, during the 1st May weekend, they organize an open cellar with visits of the winery and tasting.
