Domaine Yvon and Laurent Vocoret, Chablis 1er Cru (Burgundy, France) Fourchaume 2021

($45):  Though the crop was small in Burgundy and especially Chablis in 2021 because of severe frost, the wines, like this delight, can be excellent.  Fourchaume, one of the top premier cru vineyards of Chablis, abuts the line of Grand Cru vineyards, which perhaps explains its stature.  In any case, long-time producer family producer, Domaine Yvon and Laurent Vocoret, has fashioned a stellar example of what the vineyard can offer.  It has density offset and amplified by the unmistakable flinty edginess of classic Chablis.  Racy, with plenty of depth, it is why people love top-notch Chablis.
