    July 24, 2016 - Robe pale, c'est bon signe! Aromatique qui se libère sur des arômes de citron confit, quelques fruits exotiques, aucun excès dans ce millesime plus solaire. Belle bouche grasse, grande finesse, avec une finale très longue, saline et tout en fraîcheur. Superbe bouteille.

    May 18, 2016 - Like many others, this just isn't in it's best spot, not ox'd or any problem, just not GC like.

    February 1, 2016 - I agree with others that it is very nice, but not exceptional. Drinking well now.

    January 2, 2016 - I continue to remain mildly disappointed; it's a lovely wine, but not the powerhouse one would imagine from this grower, vineyard and year. Light gold in colour this sample of Les Clos has an open nose of white flowers and soft orchard fruits coming through. On the palate it is a wine of medium weight with pure flavours and good precision. It is unquestionably classy, but just lacks that 'wow' factor. Everything is in harmony, but it just doesn't excite. Wonderfully elegant with a long lingering finish, but a little 'lightweight'. Consistent bottles. Estimated maturity: 2012-2020

    (William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Burgundy) Classic Chablis is quickly becoming an endangered species, so finding a wine that has this austere character of pronounced, briny minerality and
    racy acidity without too much winemaking cosmetic surgery is not an easy task. Enter the 2005 Fèvre Les Clos. It has all of the above in spades and is
    just now hitting its stride; expect it to be enjoyable over the next seven to 10 years.

    (Fevre William Chablis Le Clos) More waxy and tight than the Preuses. Mineral and very, very long - lovely!
