    May 21, 2015 - Drank at Morgans with oysters and grilled mahi. Pale yellow color, not a particularly generous nose but got some citrusy, even oceanic aromas. Medium bodied, nice minerality & stony quality, moderate acidity level, along with good fruit and a pleasantly round mouthfeel. Some citrus, some peach, and good amount of minerality, though not overwhelmingly so. Not a particular stark or traditional example of a 1er cru chablis, but I found it quite enjoyable nonetheless.

    April 3, 2015 - A pleasant surprise after the last bottle of this about 4+ months ago. A citrusy (lemon) and creamy wine, with depth and some minerality, along with some flowers in the nose. Very nice, very fresh, and shows what Fèvre can do when its not premoxed.

    November 25, 2014 - In the end out of a case of 6 3 bottles were showing signs of age, 2 were very good and one was premoxed. The hard lesson here - drink the Chablis younger until premox is sorted.

    November 22, 2014 - A disappointment, but I suppose not totally unexpected. Almost no nose, and what was there indicated potential trouble; no fruit on the palate, in fact nothing at all. This did not have any overtly sherry-like or butterscotch notes, but was just curiously absent of, well, anything. I saved the rest, so I'll try again today to see if anything changed.

    (Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume Vignoble de Vaulorent) Sea air and citrus nose; tight, solid, rich essence of lemon and cream, with creamy texture, should age quite well; medium-plus finish 92+ pts.
