Roland was the first to bottle the wines in 1979. It was at that moment that he gave his name to the domaine. Together with Brigitte, our parents then expanded the domaine from 5 hectares to 20 hectares and continued to develop the business in France and abroad. Since 2010, Arnaud and David continue to write the domaine’s history with the enlargement of the cellar in 2012 in anticipation of the domaine’s new projects: Taking the reins of another family domaine (created by our maternal grandparents) in Bourgogne Epineul and Bourgogne Tonnerre. The first bottles from the 50+ year old vines will arrive in 2020! The acquisition of new parcels in Chablis, notably in Chablis Premier Cru Vau de Vey.
The nose shows a surprising intensity with a rich blend of floral and fruity notes. Fourchaume offers roundness and elegance. This wine is generous and ample. The soil, clay and limestone mixed, brings the long ending with finesse and precision.
