Guillaume Vrignaud Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2019

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceThe Vrignaud family, settled in the village of Fontenay-près-Chablis, have been growing vines for 5 generations. Guillaume Vrignaud started to bottle his first wines in 1999, and became certified organic in 2009. They have 28 hectares today. Vrignaud's four hectare vineyard in the right bank 1er Cru Fourchaume is planted to 30 year-old vines, rooted in the climat's brown clay and Kimmeridgian soils. After a native ferment in stainless, this remained in inox for one year on lees, without bâtonnage. Powerful and forward, with flint lashed stony minerality driving this wine forward, wrapping around a textural, lees lined palate, and shaped with stones. The finish lingers with a pithy lemon / crushed stone note. Drinking very smartly now, and with time ahead.Tasted: 30 January 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
