Chablis 1er Cru `Fourchaume` 2019, Domaine Corinne Perchaud


£44.95 per bottle

ABV 13.0%

Bright and expressive with aromas of honeysuckle, lemon and
white peach. The palate is full and lively, with concentrated citrus
fruit flavours that are well balanced with a steely acidity and
culminate in a long, saline finish.

Corinne Perchaud is married to fellow Chablis producer JeanPierre Grossot. The domaine was established by Jean-Pierre's
grandfather in the 1920s, and in 1980 they bottled their first
Chablis. Today, their youngest daughter, Eve, works with them, in
keeping with the family tradition. They have a small domaine in
the commune of Fleys, just south of Chablis itself, with 18 hectares
of vineyard divided into 13.35 hectares of Chablis and tiny
holdings of Premier Crus: Vaucoupin (1.45 hectares), Fourchaume
(0.75 hectares) and Les Fourneaux (1.60 hectares). The average
age of the vines is 25 years, although the steeply sloping
Vaucoupin vines were planted back in 1962.
