Gautheron Chablis 1er cru “Fourneaux” 2020
The Domaine Gautheron, our producer of more classically styled Chablis (no or minimal oak), for whose wines our stock has been sold out for months, produced terrific wines in 2020.
The 2020 Fourneaux shows a very expressive nose, with the orchard fruits dominating the lemon. In the mouth a mineral punch mixes in with the fruit, making for a persistent palate and a long finish. There’s more sucrocité (feel of sugar in the mouth, but without sweetness) than in the Vaucoupin, and it’s a beat longer. The balance and tension are perfect.
