Description

Louis Jadot Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2021 is 100% Chardonnay. The Fourchaume 1er Cru lies towards the north of the Chablis appellation alongside the right bank of the Serein and covers some 3225 hectares of vineyards. Fourchaume is one of the most highly regarded 1er Cru wines and, along with Mont de Milieu and Montée de Tonnerre, is are located on southwest facing slopes therefore receiving the maximum amount of sun exposure.

Louis Jadot is one of the largest and most famous wine producers and negociants in the Burgundy wine-growing region. The origins of the company date back to 1859 when the business was fouded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. Over time the company has acquired plots of vines is some of the most prestigious vineyards in the region including Beaune Clos des Ursules, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and many more. Louis Jadot owns or directly controls 120 ha in the Côte d’Or, including over 90 individual vineyard sites, 84ha in the Beaujolais Crus and 18ha in the Mâconnais primarily in Pouilly Fuissé (they own the fantastic Domaine Ferret). Today the business is headed by Pierre-Henry Gagey, son of André Gagey, who was entrusted with the management of Louis Jadot in 1962 by Madame Jadot following the tragic death of her son.

The Louis Jadot Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume vineyard has a continental climate (very cold in winter and hot in the summer with frosts in spring) together with the marl-y limestone soils mould the unique character of Chablis wines. After a soft pressing, part of the juice is fermented in “double barrels” of 406 litres produced by Jadot’s own cooperage Cadus. The other part is vinified and aged in stainless steel vats. Aging usually lasts 13 to 15 months on fine lies before bottling.

Fourchaume has a good ageing potential. The wine can can be enjoyed in their youth but proper cellaring will allow further complexity and depth to develop over several years. Depending on the vintage these wines can age gracefully for 5 to 10 years or even longer. Serve at 12-14C.
