    June 26, 2016 - Completely different than previous bottle. Was slightly corked and fruit was very faded.

    March 27, 2016 - Pox-free Fevre is such a treat. Drunk over two nights and a real pleasure. Great depth, lovely combination of mineral and citrus on nose and mouth

    December 1, 2015 - Deep yellow. Some nuttiness at first, soft sea shore notes. Rather heavy, woody, and dull with low acidity for a 2008 Chablis. In the throes of early oxidation, I'm afraid.

    November 27, 2015 - Crisp with green apples and citrus zest. Mineral underpinnings. Great with Thanksgiving meal.

    September 25, 2015 - superb, particularly on night two, more round on night one with the oak treatment being a little prominent, became more linear on night two with great acid/citrus and mineral elements, also floral on the nose -- interesting for a chablis... i am digging into my floor stacks to pull out the rest of my stash of this wine
