The Durup family, under the directorship of Jean Durup’s son, Jean-Paul, are the largest private landowners in Chablis.
Based in Maligny, they now have some 155 hectares under vine. They have always been great proponents of Chablis made without the influence of oak and everything they produce is vinified and matured in inert tanks.
The vineyard is located in famous localities such as Ardillier, Grande Côte, Bois Séguin and Homme Mort. The exposure is oriented to the west. However, certain plots face the south and are generally located in small valleys whose micro-climate favors concentration and richness.
Baked bread aromas and a full-flavoured palate characterise this superb premier cru Chablis. The well-positioned vineyard of Fourchaume slopes gently down to the road to Maligny.
