Domaine Chantemerle, Fourchaume Chablis Premier Cru 2015, France
Tasting Note: A slightly riper-styled Chablis.
Medium-to-deep lemon in color this wine has an aromatic nose of lemon and orange citrus, quince and green apple.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied, steely-textured chardonnay is made in a riper style than is common for the region that may be a result of vintage variation.
There is bright, high, but not-bracing acidity and balance between the acid and fruit character in the wine.
