    September 23, 2014 - I opened this bottle with trepidation, given all the flaws noted on CT. Happily I was spared! Pristine on the nose, no hint of oxidation. Singing with saline and minerals, yet the palate is incredibly soft, with no acidic bite. This wine almost makes me want to cry...my cooking will never live up to it.

    Years ago I read an article by Matt Kramer in WS, who said there is nothing comparable to tasting an aged Chablis, but few actually waited. Well, I can now say I concur wholeheartedly, as this is why I waited on this lone bottle.

    September 6, 2014 - Medium to medium deep gold, showing its age but only appropriately so - sherry-like notes on the nose had me worried, the aromas weren't all that exciting, but the palate was awesome - nice leesy, brioche complexity, beautiful smooth mouthfeel, but still fresh and poised - complex flavours, very good to exc length, this is really showing its pedigree and has some life still ahead of it

    August 25, 2014 - Pristine bottle - no signs of premox. Good acidity & minerality. Some oak influence, but primarily fruit and floral notes. No hurry to drink the rest of these.

    August 8, 2014 - no signs of pre-ox. Minerality was still present and made the wine very enjoyable. would drink them now.

    August 5, 2014 - Bottle #2 tonight. As bad as #1. Oxidized! I have 10 remaining and assume all are bad. I will try all of them in case there is a good bottle. I have a case of the 2004 Valmur purchased at the same time and source that has been drinking great. Premox is a devastating problem.

    (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.
