From 30 year old vines, Fourchaumes is one of the best known 1er crus. Very floral minty nose, with an elegant and fresh palate. This wine will reward some years in the cellar.
It is the classic accompaniment to all shell-fish and smoked salmon
Third Party Reviews
(primarily from Fourchaume proper with a small amount of Vaupoulent) A ripe but not exotic nose combines notes of apple, pear, sea breeze and touch of grapefruit. The mouth feel of the medium-bodied flavors is also quite generous but finer than those of the Beauroy, all wrapped in a more complex and more persistent finish. This too should be approachable on the younger side while offering good mid-term cellaring potential. Drink 2022+ Score 89-92 Allan Meadows, Oct 2017
