    March 28, 2017 - 93. Big distinct bouquet of honey, Brie and stone. Very vibrant palate with more mineral and almost boytritis-like texture paired with a crisp acidity-the finish though is smooth. Plenty of life remaining , drink or hold.

    March 2, 2017 - First of half case and this did not disappoint. Not a big crowd pleaser but every sip had something to say, quietly but precisely. Like small Crystals dancing in between the teeth, this was incredibly alive, thanks to its discreet and yet unmistakable origin that it couldn't hide. It was a Chablis and proud to be from les Clos. Super mineral, super dense, and super precise in its flavors or green apple, green lemony/grapefruity, iodine, and it went exquisitely with shell fish appretizer. Held superbly together with a wonderful backbone acidity which made the silky texture so refreshing, which for me was just a wonderful welcome. Cheers,

    February 12, 2017 - Toujours peur avec la Bourgogne blanche avec quelques années derrière la cravate .
    Des notes grillés/léger boisé . Un peu de vanille et de citron confit . Caramel écossais . Une belle rondeur un tamise la bouche . Pomme jaune . Une petite touche d'oxydation à peine perceptible .
    Une belle réussite !
    16.5/20+ (91-92)

    January 2, 2017 - Nez décevant qui parait un peu fatigué, mielleux, avec des notes de pomme. La bouche montre de belles qualités de concentration et d'équilibre, mais jamais à la hauteur des bouteilles précédentes, laissant encore cette impression de méforme. Grande attentes et grande déception.

    Comme la dernière prise en 2015 était magique, voire encore jeune, la conclusion s'impose: bouteille imparfaite à l'évolution prématurée.

    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.

    (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!
