Louis Jadot Chablis 1er Cru Les Fourchaumes 2018 is a wine with aromas of white fruits, citrus notes and mineral touches. On the palate it is very pleasant, with a bright acidity and a very succulent mid-palate. The finish is long and lingering

Fourchaume lies to the north, along the right bank of the Serein. This flag-bearing appellation stretches approximately 4 kilometers between L’Homme Mort and Vaulorent and can be difficult to grasp geographically. Spread over 4 municipalities (Chablis-Poinchy, Fontenay-près-Chablis, Maligny and La Chapelle-Vaupelteigne), its appearance and topography are quite unusual. Its west and southwest exposure make it a sun-drenched terroir where grapes ripen early. Wide open to the valley of the Serein, Fourchaume exhibits a diversity of topographies. Yet a tendency can be discerned: its soils are predominantly brown clay and only slightly stony.

Maison Louis Jadot’s story can’t be reduced to a simple list of dates. It is, above all, a summary of moments, meetings and an overall philosophy, all based on one simple vision: to maintain the grandeur of Burgundy’s great terroirs for all time.
