Pinson Freres Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2017
Domaine Pinson Freres This estate has long been known for classic 1er Cru and Grand Cru Chablis of concentration and complexity, traditional in style. Now under the direction of brothers Laurent and Christophe Pinson, a purer, more refined style is emerging...but without sacrificing any of the inherent richness that has always characterised Pinson wines. The main work is of course conducted in the vineyard, where old vines and controlled yields give grapes of superior quality. The expanded cellars allow careful vinification and ageing, with extended ageing on the lees and limited use of oak barrels for maturation. New oak however is not sought as a flavouring - none whatsoever for the1er Crus - and even the Grand Cru only sees 10% new wood. Laurent's daughter Charlene has recently joined the domaine having studied oenology at wine school in Beaune.
