2000 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre
- Chablis 1er Cru
Community Tasting Notes 19
June 15, 2014 - good basic chablis character, but not the nuance of a great chablis. I think these Fevres see too much oak. They may be interesting early, but I worry that they cannot develop much with age.

November 24, 2011 - First glass was super, pure chardonnay fruit, quite mineral, but a cheesy note grew stronger and stronger down the bottle
February 4, 2011 - Slightly fuller colour, now mid straw. Mineral, fresh nose with just a touch or warm butter starting to show in with the salty minerlity. Rounding out and now ready. Top 1er cru weight and decent length. very proper but get the sense that it's just starting to decline; held up well over an evening and the following lunch, but drink up. Lovely though (*)***
January 28, 2011 - An interesting gold-green color. Slightly oxidized nose and too-subdued palate impression. Stubbornly refuses to (a) take a stand or (b) fall apart. Neither fish nor foul, as it were. Exasperating.
An hour later: "Well, I must say, Algernon, that I think it is high time that Mr. Bunbury made up his mind whether he was going to live or die. This shilly-shallying with the question is absurd." (Lady Bracknell)
Another hour later: OMG (you should, once again, pardon the expression)!!!! It's alive!!!!!!
July 29, 2010 - Exellent and similar to last note. Classic Chablis, very tight initially, definitetely improves with air and warming.
