    September 20, 2016 - Wine was oxidised. Drinkable, quite pleasant, but not in peak condition.

    August 26, 2016 - Pale yellow in color. An expressive nose combines citrus oils, crushed yellow summer pit orchard fruits, wet stones and white flowers. The palate veers towards the ripe spectrum with sweet white peaches, creamy lemon curd, good acidity and a super long finish filled with minerals and cut flowers. We had the 2005 side by side with 2006, and the 2006 was more classic with a touch more Chablis verve/acidity and the 2005 showing a more ripe/exotic character. Wow!!

    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.

    July 21, 2016 - Pale yellow colour. Very tight still with dry finish. I had to leave early so couldn't wait to see if this opened up or not.

Sommelier Journal

    (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!
