    January 4, 2017 - Served blind to M, W, & C. Decanted one hour prior to serving. W says peach pit, I'm getting lots of lemon zest and some melon. M says minerals, but difficult for me to detect. A very pretty and elegant wine which seems to get better as it warms. After a while all 3 say Chablis. I'm the only one who thinks it doesn't taste quite like Chablis and I brought it. (I can even be wrong when I know what it is.) All agree, it's a very good wine that was an excellent foil for our scallops.

    January 2, 2017 - New Year's wine - drunk it through the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017. Fresh as a daisy; stored cool and dark until opening. A bit reserved right after pop and pour, but after a while really showing its full pedigree. Also warming closer to room temperature helped it open up. Well, what can I say? This was so super-seamless, elegant and classy that it's hard (and perhaps pointless) to break into bits - there's flinty minerality and a deep inexplicable Chablisness on the nose; the palate is a bit reserved and not that powerful, but oh so perfectly seamless, complete and aristocratic. It's a wine that probably outclasses the majority of its drinkers, including yours truly. Commiserations to all you who have had oxidized bottles of this.

    December 28, 2016 - No premox. Hitting the high notes. Oyster shell, minerals, lime. Crisp and delicious.

    November 30, 2016 - No Ox at all this time. Limes and rocks. A clean and precise bottle that showed slight age. Will not wait too long to have my last.

    (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

    (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.
