L'Homme Mort is a corner of Fourchaume and can be labeled as Fourchaume). Imported by Scott Paul Selections, Portland, Oregon. 12.5% alcohol.
Pale and transparent in the glass. Initial impression almost conveys sweetness. Lacks the flinty quality I look for in Chablis (was 2008 a warmer vintage than usual?) Has some lusciousness and opulence but still balanced. The wine invites me to lick my lips after a sip. Drinking quite well now. I lack experience with aging Chablis and don't know if this will be long-lived or better in seven years from now. I enjoyed this with shrimp scampi over egg noodles and a tossed salad. I have another bottle of this and one each of the 2008 Gueguen Fourchaume and Cote de Lechet.

It was a 2005 Frederic Gueguen Fourchaume (that I purchased on sale for $21.99) and a taste of Dauvissat Les Preuses at a wine bar in Raleigh that piqued my interest in Chablis
