BURGUNDY - FRANCE
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 life long dream became reality. He has added two more tiny parcels of vine since his first lucky purchase, one next to Vaucoupin and one in Tonnerre. This is absolutely classic Chablis, displaying powerful intensity, dense minerality and superb length from this self-taught winemaker.
