    December 4, 2016 - Rich yellow, a youthful glow.
    Plump ripe peaches, tropical fruits, faint hint of oyster shell.
    Rich, fleshy, solid weight, broad open flavours. Good acidity though, has a nice crisp finish. Zesty citrus along with with the ripe plump melon and peach fruit flavours. Mature Chablis, opened up and ready to drink.

    November 23, 2016 - Nose is pure California Chardonnay with a strong buttered popcorn aroma. Taste is pure, unadulterated French Chablis. Very flinty and mineral on the palate. The mouthfeel is very good. Luxurious and pure.

    October 8, 2016 - Pale gold. Chalk, white flowers, a bit of tart apple, a bit of anise, and lime on the nose. Lemon, grapefruit, stones, and a bare hint of apricot on the finish.

    Wow. This was a great wine, drinking about as well as I could imagine it to drink and constantly changing in the glass. Yum!

    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!!

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!
