Simonnet-Febvre, Chablis Premier Cru (Burgundy, France) Fourchaume 2014

($35, Louis Latour USA): Fourchaume is a Premier Cru vineyard that lies on the right bank of the Serein River, adjacent to the string of Grand Cru vineyards.  To my mind, it is typically the most opulent of the premier crus with more ripeness and less minerality than the others.  Simonnet-Febvre’s 2014 Fourchaume is richer and riper than their Vaillons or Mont de Milieu, but consistent with their style, is very racy with an attractive edginess.
