Domaine Fourrey Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons 2019
"Open, softly textured palate where delicious juicy fruit emerges and drives the whole. A 1er Cru that explodes on the palate already." Gilbert & Gaillard

Domaine Fourrey's 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons yields from vines grown on two parcels of premier cru vineyards comprising just two hectares. It is elegant, fruity and concentrated, with wonderfully defined steely 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.
"Clear yellow-gold. Youthful nose revealing smoky mineral notes, dried fruits and yellow-fleshed fruits. Open, softly textured palate where delicious juicy fruit emerges and drives the whole. A 1er Cru that explodes on the palate already." Gilbert & Gaillard
"Vaillons is often one of my favourite Premier Crus of Chablis, this coming from just two parcels of vines on the famous Kimmeridgian soils." Tom Cannavan
