2018 Gerard Duplessis Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 750ml
Region: Chablis, FRA
Domaine Gerard Duplessis is one of the premier producers in the Chablis region. A family-owned Domaine since 1895, today their vines are tended by the young and talented Lilian Duplessis, who took over from his father Gerard in 1999. Lilian converted their various plots to organic farming and has taken the family label to stratospheric new heights. Their sites are set exclusively atop the prized Kimmeridgian limestone soils. The wines are pure and impossibly long. These Chardonnays are comparable with anything that the region has to offer.
Two plots facing south at the top of the hill, where the very stony soil is responsible for a beautiful minerality.
