William Fevre Chablis Fourchaume 2008

William Fevre, Chablis Premier Cru, Fourchaume 2008 In the nose you’ll find the smell of bread dough and butter with a healthy whiff of stone fruits. In the mouth the concentration of fruit is evident, with buttery richness adding a sheen of slippery texture and ample green apple-like flavor and acidity for balance.

I have to say that the Fevre wines have been quite delicious across the board. During the last 2 trips to Les Grands Jours de Bourgogne we’ve had an opportunity to explore the depth of the estate’s wines while in Chablis.  At the same time we’ve been treated to wider distribution of the wines here at home in California.

100% of the wine went through ML and somewhere between 40% to 60% of the wine was aged for almost 6 months in barrels of 4-5 years in age. Produced and bottled in Chablis 12.5% purchased for $32.59 at Bottle Barn Fevre
