    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.

    August 1, 2014 - Fears of premox prove unfounded - this just needs time to really relax and stretch out. With time it loses weight rather than gains it, and loses its initial richness and slowly evolves some beautiful, with clear, firm spine of crushed sea shells, chalk, lemons. Underneath is a lingering finish of deep fruit that just peeks through. Brilliant stuff.

    July 10, 2013 - A very delicious, citrus and mineral driven chablis that is drinking very very well. Yum.

    Also, on initial opening I was worried that this wine was trending toward premox. As the wine aired, however, it moved away from those nutty oxidised types of aromas/flavors towards the more citrus/mineral areas.

    June 13, 2013 - Hay colored. Tropical fruit on the nose, even a hint of banana. Mineral mouthfeel with green apple prominent on the palate. Good acidity. Long finish. Showing very nicely.

    (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.
