    July 17, 2016 - Worse than my previous experience last month. More oxidized in both color and palate -- and undrinkable. Purchased four at an Acker Merrall auction and two were oxidized, one was perfect, one more to be opened.

    June 25, 2016 - Basically the same experience as JonAllen, just not quite as oxidized, or as dark in color. In fact, we drank about half the bottle at 50 degrees or so and commented on its lack of personality, which showed itself clearly as it warmed. Have two more and am hoping for a better experience.

    June 5, 2016 - Green aromas like blackcurrant. Intense and tart in the mouth. Well integrated oak, which was not the case two years ago.

    May 1, 2016 - Not entirely undrinkable but heavily oxidized dark orange and tasting it too, too bad, For a guy like me who likes them tight and bright this is a no go

    April 29, 2016 - Flint and chalk. Almost mature. A hint of honey, but weak, in the aftertaste.

    (Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos) Light yellow color; very ripe green fruit, kiwi, gooseberry, nearly a NZ Sauvignon Blanc type nose; green on palate too, tart gooseberry, tart kiwi, gunpowder, mineral palate, with off putting green notes; medium-plus finish (seems like the cursed '04, time-delayed Burgundy green meanies have claimed another victim, as this was wonderful last year)

Rockss and Fruit

  • By Lyle Fass

    (Fevre Chablis "Les Clos") Nose of crushed seahshells, some granny smith apple skins and more crushed seashells. Very aromatic. The palate is elegant but rich with a whopper of a finish. High-toned minerality and wonderful inner mouth aromas. The expansive finish pumps mineral-tinged fruit. Great wine that really stains the palate. Will benefit from cellaring but not a sin to open up now.
