Jean Dauvissat Fourchaume 1er Cru Chablis 2018
2 March 2021
Fourchaume being one of the most famous 1er Cru plot of Chablis, I do have high expectations out of it. I still have some leftovers of Montmains, so it’s really good for comparison sake. It took me many sips to tell the difference. The bouquet was elegant with fruity flavors. Palate was with the usual great piercing acidity, although this wine is more feminine than Montmains, probably due to only 12 months maturation, thus it really gives a lively and indulging feeling, without too much coloration. Personally I prefer the Montmains but I’d take this Fourchaume anytime as well.
