A classic Chablis - powerful intensity, dense minerality and superb length.

  • Variety: Chardonnay
  • 2020 Vintage
  • Region: Chablis, France

Chablis has been called 'the purest expression of Chardonnay', and that is in full evidence here. From vines next to Vaucoupin, powerful intensity, dense minerality and superb length from this self-taught winemaker. Absolutely classic Chablis.

Five minutes drive from the Grand Cru slope of Chablis itself, along the road to Tonnerre, you find the peaceful village of Fleys - home of the Chablis Premier Cru vineyard, Fourneaux. Jérémy Venon has lived in Fleys his entire life, on virtually the same street, immersed in the seasonal ebb and flow of the surrounding Chardonnay vines - some of the finest in the world.

In 2013 an opportunity arose to purchase a tiny 0.5-acre parcel on the hill of Fourneaux, and a lifelong dream became reality. Everyone thought he was mad but he has not looked back, and his tiny estate is now beginning to flourish. It has been said that the mark of a serious grower in Chablis is how good their Petit Chablis is, and Rosemary George MW comments 'his was particularly good, rounded, elegant and stoney.'

He has added two more tiny parcels of vine since his first lucky purchase, one next to Vaucoupin and one in Tonnerre. Although volumes are expectedly very small, we are delighted to be able to bring this grower to Australia for the first time!
