Jean Dauvissat was first and foremost a grape farmer. On nearly 21 hectares and 53 different parcels ranging from Petit Chablis to Premier Cru over seven different communes, he produced quality grapes and sold in bulk.

The arrival of Fabien Dauvissat in 2009, grandson of Jean brought some changes to the domaine. He has converted the vineyards to organic farming, using only copper and sulfur, no weed killers, no chemical fertilizers and no systemics.

The fruit for the Fourchaumes comes from 3 parcels of 33, 45 and 58 years old, that has a total size of 0.58ha.

The wine is fermented with natural yeast in stainless steel tanks at 20°C. It carries out malo, and aged on its lees in stainless steel tanks for 24 months.
Bottled according to the biodynamic calendar for stability, and using minimum sulfites.
