Tasting Notes: The 1er Cru vineyard of Fourchaume is one of the most prestigious in Chablis, producing elegant wine with beautiful minerality. The Chablis 1er Fourchaume has a nose with notes of lemon and Granny Smith apple. The palate is full-bodied with a creamy texture but maintains its tart-like acidity, showing great minerality and a long finish.

Food pairing: Great with lemon thyme gougères, blackcurrant, and cassis cured salmon or wild rabbit in a mustard sauce.

The Domain: Gerard Tremblay, assisted by his wife Helene, is 5th generation winemaker at this 34-hectare estate located in Chablis. Most of the vines are situated in the best premier cru and grand cru appellations, and the wines are some of the most sought-after in the region. A meticulous winemaker working from a superb new winery, Gerard is renowned for drawing out the typicity of the various appellations and his wines are a true reflection of the terroir from which they come. While most of the wines are sold locally, a limited amount is exported and have deservedly drawn the attention of such notable critics as Robert Parker, Guide Hachette and Revue des Vins de France. This particular Chablis is from 20-30 year-old vines and is steely and bright with a pronounced minerality.
