Domaine des Malandes 2018 Chablis Fourchaume 1er Cru
White wine from France
Drinking window: 2023 - 2038
The 2018 Chablis Fourchaume 1er Cru, from a parcel planted between 1953 and 1972 by Andre Tremblay, has a well-defined bouquet of freshly sliced red apples, wet limestone and light smoky scents. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, harmonious and focused; touches of red cherry furnish the finish. This is a lovely, irresistible Fourchaume that is going to be difficult to not drink over the next 2-3 years - a shame, as I suspect it will age well.

This is very bright and perfumed with aromas of spiced peach custard with white flowers. The palate has a keen sense of balance with good acidity, crisp fruit and a flinty finish. Needs a year or two. Try in 2021.

Notes of pear, orange oil and nutmeg introduce the 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume, a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy wine with an enveloping core of fruit and racy acids. This has turned out well.

A little sweet spice on the nose with ripe green fruits – lime and greengage. Mirabelle plum, juicy yet compact on the palate. Tension builds with acidity but there is a building lactic creaminess too. (TP)
