Perchaud Chablis 1er Cru Fourneaux
Corinne Perchaud
France - Burgundy - Chablis Premier Cru

1er Cru Fourneaux is located on the Fleys village and faces the field. The plots are very steep and exposed fully to the south on Kimmeridgian soil. The area gets very hot, with a heavy Fourneaux  - French for "oven" - effect.

The wine is expressive and vivacious with beautiful aromas. Well-balanced, round and fruity wine with a fine minerality on the finish.
