Toasty notes dominate the nose and palate, with some marmalade character also evident. A full, fleshy, Fourchaume with nice weight and purity of fruit, combined with enough acidity to keep it fresh. Feels like this will be ready to drink quite early, although there is plenty of concentration to allow further ageing.
