Jancis’ ‘Wine of the Week’ is 2014 Chablis Fourchaume Boudin

by Charles Lea

We are extremely聽pleased that Jancis Robinson has selected聽Chablis Fourchaume 2014, from L&S long-term suppliers Adh茅mar & Francis Boudin, as her ‘Wine of the Week’ on www.JancisRobinson.com.

Here is part of Jancis’ report:

‘Two of the finest examples of 2014 Chablis to be shown this week were made by Adh茅mar and Francis Boudin (pictured above by Jon Wyand), and shown at Lea & Sandeman’s tasting聽last week聽at the new wine club 67 Pall Mall.

I particularly loved Dom Adh茅mar et Francis Boudin, Fourchaume Premier Cru 2014 Chablis, whose intense aroma, a heady quintessentially Chablis infusion of stony river bed with a hint of wet wool, came soaring out of the glass so that I smelt it almost from across the room. This was already delicious but I’m sure it will become even more so over the next decade 鈥 and the price seems almost ridiculously low (拢17.95 btl)

The only other wine of theirs I have been able to taste was from their other premier cru,聽Dom Adh茅mar et Francis Boudin, Homme Mort Premier Cru 2014 Chablis that is perhaps a bit more typical of the vintage and much more tightly wound. I would keep this another two to four years before broaching it. (Incidentally, the style of the wines could not be less like that of a boudin, blood sausage when black.)

I have not tasted their regular Chablis 2014, to which the prices above refer, but their Fourchaume 2014 is only 拢3 more than the regular Chablis at Lea & Sandeman, making it 拢17.95 for a bottle of the ‘most energetic, exciting and approachable Chablis you could imagine.’
