The Wine

This wine comes from the Premier Cru Fourchaume in the Lieu-Dit of Les Vaupulans, known for producing more quiet opulent and fruit rich wines, more so than other sites in Chablis. It’s often compared to the Grand Crus sites along the Fontenay Valley.  This is a step up from the Petit Chablis and Chablis, naturally, the 1er Cru Fourchaume has more folds of complexity, like a perfect morning croissant - a warmth also helped by extended time ageing on lees and time on older oak. Notes of lemon, almond oil, golden apples and a touch of local honey are supported by Chablis-esque acidity and verticality. A precise, but luscious wine.

About the Wine Maker

Owned and managed by Guillaume Vrignaud, thje Domaine takes its name from Guillaume's grandfather. The Vrignaud family has been settled in the village of Fontenay-pres-Chablis for five generations.  The Domaine is one of a handful of family estates to produce organic wine in Chablis. The family has the utmost respect for nature and biodiversity and has always been working their land in an organic way. In 2009 the Domaine received organic certification but to Guillaume, organic farming goes beyond what any certification requires and is more a way of living. Guillaume aims to produce wines that reflect both their origin and climate. As a result, intervention in the cellar is very low and is often a slow process that respects the personality of the wine and the vintage.
