Domaine F. Bachelier is a very small estate set among the gently sloping hills near Maligny, which lies in the center of the Chablis vineyards. Here, the Savary and Bachelier family makes traditional, un-oaked Chablis that aptly reflects the classic style of the Chablis appellation and the chalky terroir of Maligny. This means a bright, shimmering green-gold wine that embodies an ethereal fragrance, a mouthful of racy, flinty flavors, and a very crisp finish.
Green apple, fresh pineapple, mineral and fresh citrus. There is a creamy, lees-y
quality, with fresh acidity and good length.
“Fourchaume 1er Cru" is considered by many to be one of the best 1er Cru’s
in Chablis, a northern extension of the Grand Cru cluster on the right bank of the Serein River.
Wines with a combination of mineral and opulence can be found from this site.
Upon harvesting, grapes are gently pressed and allowed to settle. Fermentation and aging takes place in stainless steel, with a minimal use of oak for the 1er Cru’s
(10-25%). The wines are bottled in the late spring after the vintage in order to present the greatest
amount of freshness.
Winery was established in 1883 and uses sustainable farming practices.
