    September 10, 2014 - Wow - our bottle was ANGRY that we opened it at this point! Nose very reduced and palate a mess of sulfur and match-head aromas. For over an hour the wine was completely discombobulated. Then, over time, you got to see glimpses of appealing, Grand Cru-scale Chablis character well-framed by wood. But drinking this right now is like waking up your SO from a deep sleep for sex -- sure, they *might* do it, and after a while even get into the spirit of the thing, but you know you're not getting anywhere near maximal payoff from the experience.

    August 22, 2014 - Good, but not great (anymore). The bottle variation of this vintage has been enormous which is dissattisfying at this price range.

    August 5, 2014 - Amazing how I enjoy GC chablis that's aged. Brings out amazing vanilla and the minerality fades somewhat. Excellent balance. Still bright and nice acidity. Caramel developing through time.

    June 27, 2014 - Pure and clean, mineral stone and apple. Very nice!

    (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.Hot Picks

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