Very crisp with apple blossom, kiwi fruit, wet limestone scents emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with a spicy entry, quite peppery for a Fourchaume, and delivers good intensity on the finish. Give this 2–3 years in bottle

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
