    December 25, 2014 - Lovely as ever, holding beautifully. Not a hint of premox in our case so far...

    December 24, 2014 - Lovely wine. Bright and appropriate acidity with a solid core of mouth-watering minerality and a nice, slightly nutty finish. No sign of fading.

    August 30, 2014 - Coravin 8/30/14: Medium golden-yellow color; nose has a nice creamy note to it, slight salty minerality, very slight yeastiness/breadiness like an excellent mature champagne; palate is fresh throughout, great acidity, lime and slight tartness on midpalate, fades just a tad toward the finish; finish is medium length. Excellently balanced, not pre-moxed, at a nice phase of maturity, and refreshing on a warm day. Drink now. 91

    August 29, 2014 - Light gold. Rich, buttery but not heavy. Citrus, pineapple. Enough acid to keep it balanced even if this one is on the fatter side of Chablis. Wonderful and still in fine shape.
    By the way, despite all the comments on Premox that I see - I have NEVER had an oxidized bottle of this one, and only a very very few premox'd bottles at all in my 2000, 2002+ Chablis. And I have 40 cases of Chablis from Fevre to Dauvissat to Raveneau going from 1995 forward. I have seen maybe 10 premox'd bottles in all the bottles I have drunk, and 6 of them were a single set of one wine that I bought from one retailer. I think this says something about premox and WHERE you bought the wine or perhaps how it was shipped/stored. Really a puzzle. But don't blame Fevre for it. Not my experience at all.

    August 28, 2014 - Totally oxidized. Down the drain like the last one. I no longer purchase Fevre.

    (William Fevre Chablis "Les Preuses") This was a wow wine. Huge nose of green apple, seashells, salt, minerals, lime & sweet green pea. Classic nose. Truly a memorable palate that is among one of the lushest and fattest I have ever encountered in Chablis. Incredible concentration. Really one of the most concentrated white burgs I have ever had. Delineates almost too perfectly on the cascading finish of green apple, sweet cucumber juice and mineral. Massive knockout finish that just stays and sits. Unbelievably young but still not "painfully backwards." What a huge amount of material this is holding in reserve. Can't wait to try this one down the road. Compelling Chablis.
