Summertime and the living is easy. The soaring temperatures in Burgundy make it seem we’ve bypassed spring altogether. All of a sudden, the vines are becoming green, the perfume of wisteria is omnipresent, and people are out and about with uncharacteristically sunburnt noses. It’s the kind of weather that makes you want to drink something young and vibrant, and for that I am happy to say we are all in luck. The 2015s from Chablis are remarkable in their youth, thanks to a combination of climactic factors in addition to the winemakers’ savoir-faire. Heat made for rich, ripe grapes, and intermittent dry spells concentrated their juice. The 2015 Chablis premier cru Fourchaume has a roundness that gives it a Côte de Beaune quality while maintaining the elegance and finesse that David Lavantureux attributes to its opportunely west-facing vineyard. It’s a big wine, but with a freshness and zing you’ll recognize after the initial mouth-filling gulp. –Emily Spillman
