PRODUCER: Domaine Fourrey et Fils is a family estate of 22 hectares in the heart of Chablisian. The estate is going through their fourth generation from father to son. Since 1992, Jean-Luc is in charge of the wine-making with his parents after his studies in Lycée de Beaune, where he obtained a degree in techniques winemaking. One of his major objectives, when he came back after school, was to improve the sales of bottles. Since four years, his sister, Marie-José, is in charge of the customer relationships.
WINEMAKING: 1Ha divided into two plots. Maturity tests are performed in different plots to determine optimum harvest date. The grapes are harvested mechanically pressed very quickly. The juice is then set by providing a vessel enzymage. It remains in the tanks 12-24 H to clear, and then the juice is separated from the lees. The juice is then put into vats by performing an enzymage. Fermentation and breeding in stainless stell tank.
TASTING NOTE: Reflecting the unique character of the calcareous clayey soil of Chablis, the apple and spice flavours are allied to a moderately rich texture. The structure shows on the finish, along with a hint of tannins and spice.
