2015 Simonnet-Febvre Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml


In stock


Tasting Notes:

The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Fourchaume had a rather overpowering floral nose that lacked any subtlety, although it did gain composure with aeration and revealed attractive flint aromas mixed with yellow flowers. The palate is well balanced with a lightly honeyed entry, waxy in texture and perhaps needing more acidity to come through on the finish. Drink over the next decade.

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of oyster shells and dried apples with peaches and stones. Full-bodied, tangy and salty with fantastic length and intensity. Goes on for a long time. Linear and tight. Drink in 2020 but already a joy to drink.

description Producer information Professional reviews

The Maison & Domaine of Simonnet-Febvre were founded in 1840 by Jean Febvre, a barrel maker by trade from the town of Montbard. In the early days, the house was known for its sparkling Chardonnays from Chablis, known today as Crémants de Bourgogne. Over the years, the Febvres acquired holdings in some of the greatest terroirs in Chablis. Today, the domaine comprises approximately 9 acres, crowned by a 2/3 acre plot in the Grand Cru vineyard of Les Preuses, with 3.5 acres of 1er Cru Mont de Milieu and 4.7 acres of communal Chablis vineyards. In 2003, Simonnet-Febvre was acquired by Maison Louis Latour. Since its purchase, the Latours have completely renovated the winemaking facilities, installing new stainless steel tanks and pneumatic presses. The vineyards have been reworked with the same sustainable vineyard practices utilized in Latour’s 125 acre domain in the Côte d’Or. Maison Louis Latour also hired a talented new winemaker, Jean-Philippe Archambaud.
