89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010

($40) Lovely floral purity to the nose. Round, broad and quite dry, with subtle orange and honey flavors. Remains just this side of exotic. The youthfully reticent finish displays good grip and length.

My wife and I drank this as a horizontal along with Domaine Pinson Freres Chablis Montmain 2008. Of the two we definitely prefer the Fourchaume, {See my tasting notes on the Montmain.] The Fourchaume has more minerality whereas the Montmain is more earthy.
