Tasting Notes

"A discreet application of wood sets off the ripe white and yellow orchard fruit aromas that are cut with sea breeze and quinine nuances. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess a beguiling mouth feel and particularly so on the overtly saline-infused finish that also flashes a hint of bitter lemon."

89-92 points - Burghound.com, Oct 2018

"The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Les Fourneaux is showing well, revealing pretty aromas of ripe citrus fruit, fresh pastry and green apple. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and saline, with an ample attack but a tight-knit core, concluding with a pure and nicely defined finish."

91 points - William Kelly, Wine Advocate, Aug 2019

The Producer

Domaine Grossot

Located on slopes between Chablis and Tonnerre, where the village of Fleys overlooks the 1er Crus ‘Vaucoupin’, ‘Mont de Milieu’ and ‘Les Fourneaux’, Corinne Perchaud & Jean-Pierre Grossot, and their daughter Eve, produce wines with beautiful texture & great minerality reflecting the famous Kimmeridgean soils of the region. Released a year or 2 behind many other growers, these are a classic style of Chablis, and the 1er Cru especially benefit from from a little extra time in bottle.

The 18 hectares of vineyards owned by the Grossot family since the 1920’s are major references of the Chablis region. 13 hectares are AOC Chablis, and 5 hectares are Chablis 1er Cru.

A transition to sustainable, then organic growing methods has been taking place for 20 years. Anticipating certification in 2016, the disastrous vintage conditions in the region necessitated a delay. As of the 2019 vintage, the wines are now certified organic. It is a modern cellar, with a sorting table, pneumatic presses. gravity feed, and stainless fermenting tanks. Maturation takes between 9 and 18 months to produce wines with a perfect balance. Oak barrels are judiciously used (30% maximum), to enhance the fruit underlined by the saltiness of the fossilised oysters that make the region famous.
