2012 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume Domaine Bernard Defaix (Case - 12/75cl)
Fourchaume is the largest first Cru of Chablis, located to the left of the Grands Cru. Excellent exposure to the lovely sunshine ensures that the vines here are generally among the first to ripen. Aged for 12 months in oak, with regular batonnage (to ensure that the oak doesnt become over powering), results in a robust yet refined wine with a lot to offer on the palate; fruit couped with that unmistakable minerality - delicious. 2011 was described as a charming, delicate and aromatic vintage, as a result of a relatively cool summer. Defaixs wines from 2011 are refined yet persistent, and full of finesse.
