2020 Pascal Robin Chablis Fourchaume Premier Cru
Pascal Robin is a passionate vigneron and runs his negociant business from the cellar of his house in Quenne, just west of Chablis. He sources grapes from across the Chablis region, and works to biodynamic principles in the cellar including respecting the lunar cycles, and a light touch with vinification. Ageing occurs in a mix of stainless steel tanks and old oak barrels, and the wines stay on their lees for a period of 10 to 18 months. Authentic Chablis made with exacting standards designed to work wonders with a range of cuisine.
The premier cru vineyard of Fourchaume is located on the right bank of the Serein River, opposite the town of La Chapelle. Given the generally sunny West/South-West orientation, and soils composed with more brown clays than the stony terroir elsewhere, this is an especially intense and complex vineyard for Chablis. Pascal uses only indigenous yeast for fermentation, and vinifies this wine in 100% old neutral oak barrels.
