Estate Notes

Domaine Fourrey's Chablis 1 er Cru, Vaillons 2015 yields from vines grown on two parcels of premier cru vineyards comprising just two hectares. It is deliciously supple, fruity and fat with a touch of minerality.

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.

Mont de Milieu is one of the best sited premier crus, being adjacent to the main group of Chablis grands crus. By contrast with the expansive and lush characteristics of the finest white burgundies from the Côte d’Or, the wines of Chablis typically display a characteristic steely, stony, mineral content.

Reviews

"The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons offers respectable citrus notes with touches of walnut and honeysuckle developing with aeration. The palate is fresh on the entry with bitter lemon and lime, as well as keen thread of acidity...there is a sense of energy here."

Elegant buttery dessert apple and quince aromas, with floral high notes and savoury mineral base. Fine balance and concentration, showing well focused fruit on the fruit palate, lovely depth and freshness on the centre, and long aromatic development and intensity in the finish. Finesse.
