2017 Domaine Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaume"

SKU #1435409 93 points James Suckling

 A richer wine from the deeper soils of a parcel in Vaupulent. It has a terrific reductive edge with grapefruit, wet stones, lime peel, dried flowers and chalky, fresh nutty notes. The palate has terrific volume and richness, as well as fleshy yellow peaches and nectarines through the middle, tidy and fresh finish.  (8/2018)

93 points Vinous

 The 2017 Chablis Fourchaume 1er Cru is dense, powerful and rich, but perhaps not as nuanced as some of the other premiers crus in this range. It makes up for that with its creamy, enveloping feel and totally alluring personality. White flowers, spice and orchard fruit fill out the wine's ample frame effortlessly. The Fourchaume is one of the more overt wines in this lineup today. (AG)  (1/2020)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume offers up a delicately oak-inflected bouquet of peaches, honeycomb, pastry cream and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fresh and layered, with tangy acids and a minty finish. (WK)  (8/2019)

K&L Notes

90-92 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "From the Vaupulent sector, a relatively rich soil which copes well with oak - Benoît uses 50% wood for this cuvee. It has a pale colour, just a very light touch of wood which goes with the generosity of style, not much acidity." (01/2019)
