Vineyards situation : Chablis is located in the northern part of Burgundy, half way between Dijon and Paris. The vineyard size is 3 225 ha. The Premier Cru vineyards represent 20% of the total size of the Burgundy Premiers Crus. There are 40 "climats" of Premiers Crus among which Fourchaume.

Characteristics : The continental climate (very cold in winter and hot in the summer with frosts in spring) together with the marly limestone soils mould the unique character of Chablis wines.

Wine making : This juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks (50%) and in wooden barrels like all our Grands Crus from the Côte d'Or area. The wine is then aged in barrels during 15-16 months before bottling (usually about 30% new oak).

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : The Louis Jadot Chablis 1er Cru « Fourchaume » has a very nice golden yellow colour. It is pure, mineral, very tense with a long finish. Aromas are very fresh with a long finish. It will match perfectly all sorts of cuisine including vegetable, fish, poultry ...

Preservation : This wine can be drunk quite young but can also age easily up to 10-15 years in very good conditions of temperature and humidity
