Fourchaume is one of the best known Premier Cru regions in Chablis. It is located just to the north of Chablis town on the eastern banks of the Serein river. Here, a favorable southerly aspect and high-quality limestone soils beget a distinctive wine distinguished from other Chablis Premier Crus by its oyster shell characters and rounded lemony flavors that nevertheless retain a fresh minerality.
2015 produced a very mellow and well balanced wine with stone fruit and some delicate minerality that follows the slightly acidic and citrus palette.
Domaine du Columbier is located in Chablis, northern Burgundy that has been a family property since 1887, handed down over several generations. Today, three brothers, Jean-Louis, Thierry and Vincent work the 51 hectares of vines. These vines are planted exclusively to Chardonnay, and produce dry white wines that are clear, lively and light, with a yellow robe characterized by hints of subtle white-green. The winemaking is carried out with great care, with the greatest of respect for the traditional Burgundian methods, allied to the advantages of modern techniques.
