The 2007 Chablis Fourchaume Vignoble de Vaulorent - from their top parcel in Vaulorent - delivers in spades the combination of fusil chalk dust and smoky notes that many locals relate to the smell of Kimmeridgian rock itself when broken apart. Whatever its origins this family of what by sheer default can hardly be called anything but "mineral" notes combines harmoniously with luscious bright grapefruit and lemon as well as high-toned herbal essences for a palate display uncanny in its combination of textural richness and palpable underlying extract with lift and elegance. A more savory sort of mineral character with hidden sweetness akin to raw shrimp or scallop wells up as this takes on air and the wine's finish positively reverberates in its oscillation of mineral and citrus like the resonance of stone church walls after a choir has gone silent. This is bound to offer at least a decade of delicious excuses for metaphor as well as versatility at table.
