Georges Deschamps Chablis 1er Cru Premier Cru Fourchaume 2015
This wine comes from the Premier Cru Fourchaume, known for producing more quite 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. All of those warm, rich, round flavours have spent time unifying in the bottle. That morning croissant has developed into a deep, sourdough-esque feeling, with rich honey, a hint of enoki mushroom. Still shimmering with acidity, notes of lemon, almond oil, golden apples and a touch of local honey. Stunning, a rarity and nice from Guillaume to share a little bit of back vintage to us.

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.
