Chablis 1er Cru
Les Fourneaux means "The Furnace", which comes from the due south orientation that gets full summer sun. This vineyard is on a steep slope just behind the winery and produces full bodied aromatic wines each year. Wines from Paul Nicolle are fermented and aged in large horizontal stainless steel tanks which allows extra contact with the lees. This results in a richly textured Chablis with minimal oak to ensure a bright and fresh flavor.
