    January 2, 2015 - A wow showing. Rainwater fresh on the palate, clear citrus fruit, and the sides are nicely round and smooth like marble. This has that typical Fevre brightness. Just lovely. Amali with Sarah and Jonathan.

    January 2, 2015 - Remarkable light yellow color. Ineffable blend of broth saline smells and some citrus. Medium weight, gorgeous feel. Complex, harmonious, and that mysterious Chablis quality that Preuses seems to capture when it is right. This bottle was most definitely right and a great interplay of primary and secondary traits.

    November 14, 2014 - Tasted in double-blind fashion from a bottle kindly provided by J.P., this wine showed beautifully. With a light yellow/green color which belies its age, it goes on to impress with a beautiful bouquet of lime zest, wet stones, white peaches and lavender. Medium-bodied and crisply acidic on the palate, it follows with flavors which mirror the nose. The alcohol (listed as 13%) is nicely integrated and the middle palate shows a richness which fooled most tasters into thinking that it was from the Côte de Beaune. Long and luscious at the back end, it closes with a touch of chalky minerality. Those holding well-cellared bottles of this wine should (assuming no random "hex" of premature oxidation) expect that it will drink beautifully into the next decade. Drink now-2021.
