Domaine Fourrey Chablis Premier Cru Côte de Lechet 75 CL

Grand Vin de Bourgogne 2022 – France

The Fourrey family is a small, family-owned house, where the 4th generation today cultivates 18 hectares of chardonnay. They are part of the association Vigneron Independant, which in short means that the vintner is in charge of everything from field care to vinification, bottling and sales. In other words, the closest you’ll get to a guarantee of personal, passionate, handcrafted wines.

The grapes for this 1er cru chablis come from a handful of parcels on the Côte de Lechet, where the family has 3½ hectares to do well on a clayey limestone soil. Both here and in the cellar, Jean-Luc Fourrey has reigned since 1992, when he took over from his parents. The vinification takes place in steel tanks, while the aging takes place partly in stainless steel and partly in wooden barrels of varying age so as not to overpower the wine.

Aroma and taste exhibit a lovely combination of precision and minerality. Young Chablis is not violent or full-bodied, but a finely honed affair that convinces with elegance rather than horsepower. The aroma picture is dominated by apple, lemon and fresh almonds with slightly creamy nuances. Calcareous minerals, flint and a fresh acidity make for a complex but easy-drinking wine that is a smooth food wine for a wide variety of table delights.

Enjoy Domaine Fourrey Chablis Côte de Lechet at a serving temperature of 10-15° depending on temperament, but preferably not too cold, as the wine will not be allowed to show its virtues.
Enjoy it with a fish dish, preferably cod fish (or turbot when it needs to be refined) with a simple, tasty sauce such as beurre blanc or hollandaise. The light meat dishes are also obvious for a wine like this, but there must not be excessive fat in the dishes.

You can enjoy wines now and the next approx. 7-10 years ahead. Over time, you will get a more intense scent, where the minerals stand out even more clearly and the fruit will appear more rounded as the aging aromas emerge.
