2008 Domaine Francine & Olivier Savary Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaume"
Allen Meadows - Burghound
This too displays an entirely classic nose of algae, salt water and airy green fruit aromas cut with subtle lemon zest hints that are also picked up by the complex and layered middle weight flavors that offer a beguiling texture and fine richness on the wonderfully long finish. This is a Fourchaume of refinement, which is typical of wines hailing from L'Homme Mort. Worth a look.
Tight, with seashore, iodine, lemon, green apple and melon aromas and flavors. Offers fine cut and balance on the steely side, with good length. Best from 2012 through 2018. (BS)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Savary 2008 Chablis Fourchaume is firm, bracing, and for now at least slightly less interesting or distinctively delicious than their old vines village cuvee. That said, its herb- and chalky mineral-shaded lemon and apple fruit offer refreshment and persistence, and perhaps if one gives this a couple of years in bottle it will rise to a new level of interest.
