2011 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaume" (Pre-Arrival)
Allen Meadows - Burghound
(from Vaulorent). Here the nose offers up an abundance of Chablis character with a gentle hint of wood framing the aromas of mineral reduction and green fruit. There is good volume to the generous, rich and attractively textured flavors that possess good power and very solid density, all wrapped in a refreshing, stony and salineinfused finish. This is lovely.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Chablis Fourchaume wraps around the palate with serious intensity, which is amazing, considering the wine is made from the second selection of young vine fruit from Vaulorent! A gorgeous bouquet laced with gunflint, smoke, oyster shells and grapefruit balances the textural depth and sheer power of the fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2013+.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(domain wine): Pale yellow-green. Fruit-driven aromas of lemon, lime, white peach and mango. Suppler, sweeter and more open-knit than the Montee de Tonnerre, in a rich, dense, fruity style. Finishes smooth and persistent, with attractive floral lift.
