Chablis Premier Cru - Fourchaume Cru - Domaine Du Colombier


The Somerset Wine Co

Add to wishlist
This 2019 Premier Cru is youthful, with primary, citrus-scented fruit and firm structure from its lively acidity. It has plenty of ageing potential, but if you open it now, decant for an hour or two, ensure it’s out of the fridge for 20 minutes or so before serving. Domaine du Colombier is typical of Chablis producers in that it is a family-run estate (Thierry Mothe and family grow the grapes and make the wines) with a small range of wines at all four quality levels, all from the Chardonnay variety: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Premier Cru Chablis and Grand Cru. Their Premier Cru Fourchaume is a star, better-priced than the Grand Cru, but with delicious flavour and ageing potential expected from a really great vineyard. 13% ABV.
