Gautheron Chablis 1er “Fourneaux” VV 2019
The Domaine Gautheron hews mostly to the style of classic Chablis. Winemaker Cyril Gautheron’s main focus is on showing his terroir clearly — when he uses barrels for elevage, he does so with a light touch. The result is wines that show clean, pure, Chardonnay fruit mixed with a stony minerality.
The “Fourneaux Vieilles Vignes” comes from 70 year-old vines and sees just a bit of oak. This wine opens a bit smoother than the regular Founeaux cuvée and shows extraordinary balance across the palate. It’s more complex aromatically and particularly refined. Look for notes of chalk, dried melon, and oyster shells — there’s noticeable length, suggesting this will age beautifully for 4-5 years.
