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.

After a slight settling, the juice starts its fermentation in tank, then ¼ of juice is racked in barrels. Both wines perform their alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation and their aging on the lees, separately. The two cuvées are blended six months after harvesting. The wine is then filtered and is bottled 15 months after harvesting.

"The 2018 Chablis Les Fourneaux 1er Cru comes from 30-year-old vines. It has a fragrant nose of Braeburn apples, pear and light wet pavement aromas. The well-balanced palate delivers a fine bead of acidity, good tension, admirable precision and coiled-up energy toward the finish.
