Domaine Vrignaud Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume
Things get much more serious and intense with the Domaine Vrignaud Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume, a wine that brings together power with incisive minerality, in a style that captures the personality of the year in spades. In the glass the Chablis Fourchaume is vivid, nuanced and beautifully articulated. Everything is in the right place. Crushed rocks, almonds and apricots are woven together nicely on the expressive, floral-infused finish.

The Vrignaud family's 4.7 hectare parcel of Chablis Fourchaume vines yields a wine of great depth and complexity. The epitome of Chablis, no oak is used for this cuvée so that it shows off the clarity derived from ageing in stainless steel.
