CHABLIS BY DOMAINE FOURREY 2020
Burgundy lovers know that Chablis by Domaine Fourrey 2020 is a home run for the absolute best quality-to-price Chardonnay. This wine is really hitting its stride, showing energy and complexity right out the gate.
Domaine Fourrey has quietly been making extraordinary wine here for four generations, focusing on their terroir with the single-minded passion of true natives.
Today’s white is equal parts texture and mineral focus, sourced from old vineyards in Chablis. You can always be sure that when we find a sub-$35 Chablis from one of the region’s blue-blooded families, we make it available to our clients. Domaine Fourrey’s artisanal, mineral-marked Chablis is one of life’s simple luxuries.
Pair this Chablis with mild, buttery or creamy dishes, meaty fish (halibut, cod) and shellfish (lobster, shrimp, crab, scallops) or subtly flavoured, simply seasoned chicken and pork dishes.
Until you’ve enjoyed one of Domaine Fourrey’s creations yourself… you’re missing out.
