Disarmingly drinkable already, this has the potential to age and become a memorable Fourchaume in three to four years.

About the Wine

The Kimmeridgian crunch is there for all to see, in this racy, chalky Premier Cru Chablis, which sees no oak at all.

The Fourchaume vineyard sits bang on the famous Kimmeridgian soil that gives Chablis and Champagne their zing and bite. Add in some beautiful white flower aromatics and a long, pebbly finish and you've got a simply excellent example of what makes Chablis so popular.

Fourchaume? For Sure.

Currently in the hands of Jean-Francois Bordet, who learnt under his grandfather Roger.

The estate is known for its contemporary, stylish wines, expressive of both fruit and terroir.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Very pretty pale golden yellow in colour with light greenish glints. Bright, luminous and limpid.

The nose is an explosion of fine fresh notes, of elegant white flowers, fresh brioche and leafy tenderness.

The taste reveals instantly all its power, richness and elegance-perfect balance of finess, mineral, mellowness and vivacity. It generously offers us a full spectrum of aromas.

The finish just goes on and on, never to the forgotten.

Critic Reviews

Decanter Magazine

"The Séguinot’s roots in Maligny date back to 1590. This is a complete Fourchaume from Jean-François Bordet which balances the richness, concentration and intensity of Fourchaume with fresh acid, a lovely mineral undertow and complexity of flavour. Disarmingly drinkable already, this has the potential to age and become a memorable Fourchaume in three to four years." - Andy Howard MW (Decanter)

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
