Domaine Fourrey, Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir, Burgundy, France 2018
"...hints of brioche and almond...well balanced with a honeyed opening. Notes of mango and pineapple render the finish almost Chassagne-like." Neal Martin, Vinous
|Grape Blend||Chardonnay 100%|
Domaine Fourrey's 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir is a complex, concentrated Grand Cru Chablis style, oozing class and with great ageing potential.
Vaudésir is one of the seven official climats of the Chablis Grand Cru appellation, on steep slopes overlooking the town of Chablis below. Vaudésir Chablis' tend to be softer and more elegant than other Grand Crus, with floral characters rounding out Chablis' iconic minerality, and the wines are renowned for their wonderful balance.
Jean-Luc Fourrey and his sister Marie are the fourth generation and driving force behind this exciting, emerging producer, marrying traditional and modern techniques. 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.
"The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru has a pleasant nose of yellow plum and hints of brioche and almond...well balanced with a honeyed opening. Notes of mango and pineapple render the finish almost Chassagne-like." Neal Martin, Vinous
