Coravin 6/20/15: Medium golden color, lighter than I recall; nose has creamy rounded fruit, salinity, some pear, some tropical pineapple; palate is full bodied, excellent balanced acidity, lemon-lime, no oxidation at all (even less than my last bottle), pleasing balance with good concentration of fruit at the forefront and good acidity that kicks in at the midpalate; finish is medium length. Lacks a bit of the complexity of a stellar wine, but this is drinking very well now, great balance, excellent food wine, and no premox at all. 92+ with many years ahead based on this bottle.
Quality Chop House (Quality Chop House): A little too warm, and the glasses a little too small. Fresh, focused and with good Chablis typicity. A slightly vegetal bite to the saline minerality. Focused and quite precise. Long. Holds up well over several hours. Kore recognisably Chablis than the richer Clos alongside. ****
Beautiful and magnificent. Not at all premoxed. Beautiful for its transparent texture and reminding us of a spring bright sun shine, and yet magnificent for its perfect balance of honey, citrus, iodine, saline mineral and waves and waves of complexities perfectly in harmony with each other. I hadn't picked up another W. Fevre as I have been more disappointed than satisfied but this evening, I am nearly tempted to look out for some more!~ Cheers,
A wonderful pleasure provider. However quite older than I had expected as some signs of premox is definitely gaining ground. Drink up while it offers plenty of pleasure, but it won't be long before it gives away its soul.
Frustrating - had a few premox bottles recently - this one is youthful and fat, and could easily lean out a bit with some more age. Tough call on my remaining bottles - maybe give them a few more years and see what happens. This wine had a nice creamy nose - minerals, and some slight toasty notes. Rich and plump on the palate - not as saline as I would like...
A wow showing. Rainwater fresh on the palate, clear citrus fruit, and the sides are nicely round and smooth like marble. This has that typical Fevre brightness. Just lovely. Amali with Sarah and Jonathan.
Remarkable light yellow color. Ineffable blend of broth saline smells and some citrus. Medium weight, gorgeous feel. Complex, harmonious, and that mysterious Chablis quality that Preuses seems to capture when it is right. This bottle was most definitely right and a great interplay of primary and secondary traits.
Tasted in double-blind fashion from a bottle kindly provided by J.P., this wine showed beautifully. With a light yellow/green color which belies its age, it goes on to impress with a beautiful bouquet of lime zest, wet stones, white peaches and lavender. Medium-bodied and crisply acidic on the palate, it follows with flavors which mirror the nose. The alcohol (listed as 13%) is nicely integrated and the middle palate shows a richness which fooled most tasters into thinking that it was from the Côte de Beaune. Long and luscious at the back end, it closes with a touch of chalky minerality. Those holding well-cellared bottles of this wine should (assuming no random "hex" of premature oxidation) expect that it will drink beautifully into the next decade. Drink now-2021.
Remarkably light yellow in color. Wonderful aromatic mixture of orange peel, lemon, and some green herb. Rich entry (somewhat atypical for an '04, in fact) with minimal footprint of oak, but this slims down and has marvelous salinity and acidity as it finishes. Deceptively powerful. Let the Fevre crap shoot continue, bottle by excruciating bottle. This one was a definite winner and as fresh as a 10 year old Chablis could be-a great producer for those who value the element of surprise above all else.
I like DPB's note below... this is a very young wine with acidity i could only describe as shrill... the wine held up well overnight in the fridge and "fattened" up a bit... plenty of potential here but this is very 04 and slightly out of balance (may always be)... serve with a rombauer chard and watch the enamel peel off your cal chard wine drinker friend's teeth haha...
No sign of prem-ox. Classic Chablis nose, with markers of lemon, chalk and sea brine. The palate is in a good place, maybe a little less acidic that your normal 04 Chablis would be, which I attribute to the age of the wine. Very silky and smooth texture with some lemon flavors and that add acid. Ready to go.
A Week in Osoyoos; 7/5/2014-7/11/2014 (Osoyoos, BC): No formal notes. Wow this is extremely young. Pale lemon colour with almost a hint of green. Very classic Chablis with minerals, saline and lemon. Palate is tight, focused and linear. Great acidity. Really nice but this can go another 5-10 years easy. Excellent. 92+
Aged Raveneau, Dauvissat & Fevre at E&R: Quieter aromas here, with slight notes of pollen and citric acid. Rich palate entry, notes of glue, minerals, and the powdery outside of a balloon. More minerals, tartness, and a soft texture. Huge eruption and intensity on the finish! Lovely, tart puckering, nearly bitter notes linger, but in a good way. This is tasting very young and needs more time. 90+
Wow, what a beautiful wine. A bit big and round for a Chablis. The chalk and apples were there, but underneath some vanilla and a little butter. Still an amazing wine and the star of the night for our tasting. Tied with the Riesling in initial tasting, but the crowd favorite for continued drinking.
my bday and bridge night, great again -- amazing to me how big and rich and complex this wine is, drink now and get ready for a kaleidoscope, still a little bit of oak left to integrate / tone down but awesome nonetheless
nice medium light color, nose was Xmas wreath and citrus, palate was rich and textured, with spearmint and lemon chiffon, also some sense of oak richness (and a whiff of smoke coming in and out)… lovely for sure
WineBerserkers Bay Area Burgundy Tasting (Bella Trattoria, San Francisco): Nose of green apple, floral and tons of wooly, minerally notes. Picked up a sweeter, candied fruit note as it picked up air. Pale silver gold colour looked younger than expected. Took a little while for the palate to open up beyond minerals and citrus but eventually showed green apple, white peach, citrus, little bit of chalk and minerals. Good acidity, nice balance and medium finish. Showed well and seems like it has some upside development left in it. Not as complex or minerally as other Fevre GC's I have had.
Burgundy Tasting (San Francisco): I think this was my WOTN, though the Clos de Lambrays and the Richbourg were only a hair's length behind. I have tasted Fevre before (different vineyard, different vintage), and while impressed, it did not leave this kind of impression. This knocked me out. I should be drinking more Chablis of this caliber.
nose: at first on the shy side, with air and over the course of dinner the aromas became deliciously candied: not in the too-much-sugar-for-anyone-to-healthily-metabolize way, but in the super-delicious-I-could-sniff-all-night way. palate: the intensity of flavor was true throughout the night, but by the end of the evening the underlying film of caramel essence had taken charge of the palate and given the wine presence and impressive weight. The acid was deliciously piercing. Truly outstanding.
WineBerserkers Bay Area Burgundy Tasting (Bella Trattoria, San Francisco): Light golden-yellow color; nose has oily citrus fruit, bright, very slight minerality, moderate intensity; palate is medium bodied, fantastic acid without an unpleasant bite, balanced out well with some white peach fruit, slight chalky and mineral towards the end; finish is medium length, fresh citrus and great cleansing acidity. Very good overall, still a bit young, very fun to drink but not the most intense or flavorful Fevre that I have had. 91-92 1/20/14: Day 2, and this is drinking just as well. The crazy high acid has integrated a bit more, and the nose and palate have both fleshed out with some early secondary notes, caramel, and still plenty of fruit; palate is very well balanced but still fresh with good acid. Lovely to drink, and my other bottles could probably use a few years. 92+
Burgundy Dinner (La Pentola): Nice airy nose with lemon, limestone and sea breeze. A touch richer on the palate than the elegant nose suggests with beautiful citrus flavours wrapped in a touch of wood. Nice acidity and minerality. Focused with good tension and showing very youthfully. Really nice now but barring premox this will be fantastic in another 2-3 years. 92+
Similar to last year's bottle, but the fruit was more expressive this time, led by a terrific lemon curd/oil, but also had white fruits, flowers, mineral on nose and palate. Retains its wonderful balance with finesse. Finishes a little tart without food present. A real treat.
Holy crap, is this ever good!! On the roulette wheel which is white Burgundy, this is the big payoff. A simply fascinating, intoxicating and ethereal wine. Beautifully creamy yet precise texture, loaded with bright lemon, minerals, flowers, it just goes on and on. How I wish this could last all night. Stunning.
Christmas & New Year 2013; 12/20/2013-1/1/2014: Another good showing though not quite the grip and intensity of a bottle in the summer. Pale green-yellow. Very citrus, tightly floral and densely mineral nose. Nicely mineral and saline around the edges with good grip. Mineral, good focus, weight building through the mid-palate and a very positive finish. Lovely. ****1/2 After 24 hrs in the fridge, this has built intensity and grip and is every bit as good as previous ***** bottle.
Beautiful rich, golden colour with apple and citrus notes on the nose. On the palate it is intense and round with a hint of sweet tropical flavours that I'm not too sure about. I like my Chablis steely and stoney with bags of mineral content and this is more rich, smooth and exotically fruity. Still mightily impressive with its powerful, concentrated flavours and the length is excellent. Estimated maturity: Now-2016+
Light yellow. Nose of pineapple and citrus. Fine flavors of tropical fruit and butter lightened by a mineral and chalk finish/ Good lift and acid cut. Lots of time ahead, but very good now. Excellent wine.
GT Fish & Oyster - Magnum Night (Chicago, IL): Terrific, layered aromas with mineral, stone fruit and citrus zest. Crisp and acid-driven. Medium rich stone fruit made complex with mineral notes. Long. More going on here than in the '04 Les Clos tasted side by side.
Pale green-yellow. Very citrus, tightly floral and densely mineral nose. Power with line and elegance. Grippy attack, real bite and intensity through the mid palate. Lime fruit, some oyster shell, GC weight and intensity but also somehow balanced with a lightness, elegance and precision that belies its persistence and weight of grippy extract. First bottle of this, following on from the Clos and Bougros Cote de B in recent months, and this is the most impressive of the three. First time I've really thought 'wow' on the first sip of a Fevre - really lives up to its early promise as a young bottle sample. Fantastic. Look forward to seeing how half the bottle develops with air overnight. *****
Tremendous bottle of Les Preuses, which we drank with its sister Le Valmur, both had the sharp purity and complexity and classic Chablis notes of seashells, minerals and citrus, I just thought the Les Preuses was just a little more elegant, both were outstanding, a style choice
Drinking very nicely now. Has developed a little extra richness with age that it didn't have in it's youth, a bit more like a Cali chard than a true chablis. Wouldn't hold too much longer and don't expect pure typicity, just a nice wine, drinking well now. This is the third time I have had this wine over a few years and there has never been a hint of premox.
As with most of the '04 Fevres I have had in the past year, from my cellar and others, this one was sadly pre-moxed. Little liveliness, blandly monolithic. We poured it down the drain. Unfortunately, I still have a lot of Fevres from 2002 through '08, but I've made my last purchase from what used to be one of my favorite producers.
The best bottle of Les Preuses I have had, pale yellow in the glass, transparent, precise, clear acidic spine, classic seashell and mineral notes, long finish, not heavy, perhaps not the complexity and power of some of the other grand crus, lovely wine, not sure if it is worth the risk to wait longer for it to potentially gain complexity
Worried in view of 3 prior tasting notes indicating premox and since taking 2 bottles to a wine event today, decided to open both and check prior to leaving. Eureka! Both bottles excellent!! No sign of premox...it's my lucky day I guess. One had a whiff of reduction on the nose, and the other did not. Both showed wonderful citrus and stone fruit aromas. Both very rich and lush, but just enough acid to keep interesting. Both hitting full stride with a long finish...Good stuff!!
On the way to oxidation, but not completely, as per Burgundy Al. You can sense that there might have been something excellent, but who cares. As opposed to an '01 Fevre Preuses, which was totally completely, burnt rubber. (Both opened in the last hour). This is just complete f--cking bullshit.
Best white that I've had in ages. Still plenty of fruit and not at all swamped by the flinty minerality. Good acidity, good, fresh lemon and honey, light but deep, minerality and vanilla in the background good balanced finish. No premox. This is how it should be!
Oxford Chardonnay Session: Rich deep mature Chablis nose of asparagus and mushroom. Creamy, full bodied palate and roasted mushroom character with light oak. Steely acidity and well balanced. This is very enjoyable and ready to drink but will it age further?
Sea spray and just a hint of green bean on the nose, then a palate which is lively, fresh, with medium intensity and plenty of sea shell minerality. Not showing quite the depth or intensity of previous bottles, but still very youthful and enjoyable.
Wow, this wine has really evolved. The shear intensity of youth has mellowed. The greenness has turned to light straw, the quinine has faded to flowers and honey, the wine is now polished. Ethereal, balance. Still retaining the mineral-seashell Chablis taste. So light on it's feet for such a big wine. Wonderful complexity, great body and still a hugh finish. For my taste, this is in the ideal drinking window. Best Fevre I have had to date. I am not going to rush to finish my remaining bottles, but I am not going to hold back either.
This wine continues to improve in the bottle; recent examples have been stunning. Aromas of loamy earth, seashell, white fruits, with hints of the sea. Medium bodied, with incredible concentration and depth of flavor, but with no sense of heaviness. A long, focused and complex finish.
No premature oxidaztion here at all. Lovely light yellow color. Glorious nose of chalk, minerals, green apple, and a light citrus note. In the mouth, terrific intensity, with crisp, pure Chardonnay fruit, wonderful concentration, and lightly earthy and mineral notes. Bright acidity and a long finish. This is textbook -- serious wine that is such a pleasure to drink. A
Halfway to 2013, but no regrets here. A fabulous bottle of wine at age 7. The nose is a bit muted after two hours, but the mouth is fabulously filling in a very "salty" sort of way, with nice fruit (perhaps a bit atypical here?) and a nice saline feel. The length is quite nice, if a bit short of extraordinary. A spectacular package to drink now?
Oily nose, clean lovely fruit. Drank at the end of a night of white burgs, so this seemed far too young and lacked distinction today. Obviously well made, but I think far too young. I will wait on my bottles. 91+
Wow, this is outstanding. Smells like crushed sea shells, rocks and lemon-lime, with a note of smoke. The palette is fantastic, with more citrus and stone, and lemon curd component that rounds out the finish.
More like Chassagne than Chablis but excellent. Much richer than a Chablis is in my mind, but loads of minerals, roasted nuts, and loads of ripe yellow fruits. Very long and balanced. Might not be great Chablis but really good white Burgundy.
Fabulous wine. It's the balance which makes this so exciting; take as given all the sea-shell, citrus and mineral stuff which you can read about in the other CT TNs ("lemon curd" is spot on...) - the point is the incredible purity, the astonishing minerality, and a rather non-Chablis richness. My first really successful Fevre wine, and a clear 94P
Light yellow color. Highly aromatic nose of white flowers, sea spray, and a hint of gun flint. In the mouth, deep, medium- to full-bodied, with a massive powdered stone and mineral character that grips the palate and simply won't let go. Impeccably balanced, with fantastic richness the floats on top of a powerful acidic backbone. This young chablis, reminiscent of a top-flight Chevalier-Montrachet, will last (and probably improve) for a long time.
Pale and luminous. Ultra-marine nose with citrus grace notes. Elegant, refined, almost light-bodied, and with strong fruit presence for a 2004 (several blind tasters misidentified the vintage). Very long, herb-infused finish. A superb showing.
Perhaps a little less cut than last time, but give this a few hours and this is rocking -- literally. (Wine puns are the worst!). This is infused with lemon curd and pristine rain water and wet rocks. Green apple and mint. Very rich on the palate, but lively all the same. Great stuff.
A little disappointing. Plenty of acidity but still managed to taste heavy and plodding. Flat on the palate. Better with food but still only good. Possibly a flawed bottle? Certainly not as good as the 02 Billaud Simon Mont de Milieu a few months ago.
Wine Dinner at 12B (Vancouver, BC): Popped and poured slightly chilled. Light yellow in colour. This nose is more expressive than the two Les Clos wines giving notes of lemon, lime and sea shells. In the mouth this wine gives killer flavours of citrus fruits, minerality and subtle oak treatment. Medium body, lots of acid with a long finish. A classy wine that offers elegance and power while remaining well focused. Needs 3-5 years. Excellent. 92+
The 04 Fevre wines are really drinking well, and this was no exception. I really picked up on some stone fruits and minerality in the nose. Lush and rich with a beautiful texture on the palate, but with still enough acidity to keep the wine balanced and a wonderful accompaniment to food.
04 continues to be a favorite Chablis vintage of mine, and this wine did not disappoint. Green/gold in color. Big nose with lots of minerality and seashell. Nice big, dry, but balanced palate of minerals, nuts, chalk and seashells. Hint of lemon, but no other fruit to speak of. A delicious food wine had with smoked grilled sturgeon.Would have liked a little more fruit on the palate but very good nonetheless. No evidence of any pre-mox and several more years left to go.
Had this on Mother's Day and forgot to note it. This was stunningly good. Vibrant, fresh, ocean, minerals, fairly tight. Yeah, it's young, but it seems risky to take chances anymore. Based on this bottle, this SHOULD have many years ahead of it.
Day 1: Shut down beyond hardcore. I won't pretend to rate it at this point. Right now the structure is dominant but I predict that this will blossom with age. Five more years, minimum. (BTW no sign of premox, yay.)
Day 2 (gassed): Wow what a change - much more open. Shrill acidity from day 1 has mostly mellowed out, thankfully. Nose is key lime pie, fresh grass, chalk, a touch of salt. Palate has that weightless elegance you always find in great Chablis. Mouthcoating layers of flavor with an endless finish. There is deep complexity here (green apple, cream, avocado, sea spray, etc.), but it's still wound tight. Killer stuff.
It's going to be interesting learning the flavor profiles of the different Chablis GC as I continue to drink this stuff (just starting collecting it). Apparently these can drink great when young if given plenty of air... say a few minutes Mollydooker shake then 3 hours decant minimum (or an overnight rest)...
Wine Education Service - Chablis is Chic (LSE): A very youthful nose, delicate, fruity (some tropical fruit notes). Mineral, complex, dry but not austere, lovely mineral bitter finish, great length, drinkable now but feels as though it needs time.
Bouchard / Fèvre / Henriot Tasting (The Wine Cellar Club - Irvine, CA): There is more fruit apparent in this aged sample. The nose is complex and radiant with aromas of stone fruits, citrus, apples, and underlying minerals. Supple and restrained in texture on the palate with great fruit density and complexity. The flavors consist of stones, lemon curd, stalk, and even some meaty tones towards the finish. The mellowness and additional character really show even though there is still plenty of tension to the wine.
Pretty good stuff, and very interesting to serve next to a 2003 Varner Bee Block, in that they could not be more different (as expected). Very light yellow color, excellent bouquet of minerals, citrus and sea shore. Palate cleansing acidity, citrus (lemon) with hints of tea and lavender. Very enjoyable with the cod served with it.
This is good, but still very tight. The nose is all seashell and saltwater. The color is slightly green, and the palate is mineral with bracing acidity. The length is good, but the wine is just simply shut down.
Note: Shows a lot better after an hour, and after wrming up.
Lots of fruit, but without any of the sweet notes found in any other wine with some much fruit. Very tactile mouth (and nose) with a good deal more texture than just bracing acidity. I found the length nice, but lacking compared to other reviews.
Still has quite a bit of evolution ahead of it. No sign of decline. Try next in 2013 - no cheating.
Pale color. Salty, complex nose featuring lemon, verbena, tea, and flowers. The immediately impressive thing in the mouth is its Grand Cru texture and "heft" (in the words of my dining companion) without any fat or excess weight. Very sound but not bracing acidity and quite round for an '04. Young and outstanding but this is definitely not a Chablis that is marked by earth and stone.
Lemon peel, cinammon, wet stones on the nose. White pears, lovely sweet lemon curd on the palate with a great precise sweet acidity. Just really beautifully balanced with excellent texture and viscosity. Excellent
A pretty light yellow color. A heavenly bouquet, offering up notes of chalk, loamy earth, mineral, crushed sea shells, and ripe white fruits. Quite lively on the palate, with beautiful concentration, nice acidity, and incredible delineation on the long and well focused finish. The best bottle yet!
I simply adore this wine, and wish that I had bought more! A pretty yellow color, with notes of minerals, chalky earth and ripe white fruits. Medium-bodied, with an incredible energy, precision, and liveliness on the palate; great mouthfeel, and a wonderfully focused and pristine finish.
Very young but with the chicken and tarragon coming out...
Very pale but showing a great nose of lemon curd, clean waxy chardonnay fruit, and steel. Some oak but not too extravagant for Fevre. Great minerality on the palate, good acidity and oh so painfully young. Big and brash for a Chablis, perhaps even a little fat, but without the extreme buttery/honey unction of it's more southerly neighbours. Lovely long finish which sharpens up the steely structure nicely. Excellent and enjoyable now but really needs another 5 years to show it's true colours. Utter bargain.
One word of caution - this wine seems very sensitive to temperature. Don't over-chill it.
Straw... nose is more evolved then when I last tried this, two years ago, but remains dominated by citrus and steel. Floral undertones (used to be "overtones" and a hint of forest loam that brings an interesting complexity. Crisp, long finish,very clean, superb lines and acidity. A great chablis from Fevre starting to drink well in the young style that I favor.
Light yellow in color. An extroverted bouquet, offering up complex notes of loamy earth, ripe white fruits and hot rocks. Medium-bodied, with beautiful concentration and a lush mouthfeel, but nicely framed/balanced by the crisp acidity. Went unbelievably well with the first several courses of the "Gourmand" tasting menu at Eleven Madison Park.
Pale yellow in glass. Classic Chablis. Flinty, crushed stones and sea shells in taste. Lean, clean, nice acidity. Apple fragrance, almost of overly ripe fruit. Weird, but the fragrance reminded me of crushed Ginkgo tree fruit. Good value at PA state store sale price.
Bright apple, toasty oak, lemon, and cream on the nose. Apple, citrus, and minerals on the palate. Light, but well balanced acidity. A touch of ripe apple was present initially on the finish, but it faded quickly after opening. This was an excellent Chablis, pairing perfectly with a variety of creamy shell fish dishes (mussels, clams, scallops, and lobster).
Light yellow gold color. Extroverted boquet, offering up intenese notes of ripe white fruits, mineral, sun-baked stones and flint, with an overarching sense of loamy earth. Incredible depth and delineation on the palate, with a very focused and complex finish. On par with the '05 les Clos.
Light yellow with a typical glint of green. The nose is all sea breeze and iodine, not about the fruit at all. For a brief moment right out of the bottle, there is a rich brothiness, but this quickly recedes to reveal a pure, lean, linear expression of Chablis. With time, it does pick up a little weight, blood orange, and very subtle sweetness of fruit, but the bracing acidity remains at the very core. Tremendously earthy rather than mineral finish. I just loved the precision of this wine and the fact that it was unencumbered by the somewhat oily fruit of '06 and the botrytis of '05. While still young, it is showing beautifully right now.
Pale yellow with subtle nose of crushed stones and seashells. Beautiful intense and balanced palate of mineral, apple, citrus and floral elements. Lovely finish. A very nice wine and particularly at the $39.00 sale price in the PA State Store system.
Decanted for approximately 30 mins. No formal notes taken. Bright golden yellow in appearance. Medium bodied & fairly tight but as the wine started to come up in temp the flavors started to come thru with notes of caramel, pear & lemon curd. Wonderful minerality & excellent balance. Hold or decant for 1hr+ 50+5+13+17+7=92+
Lovely wine with many years to go. Very pale color with yellow/green hues. Honeysuckle, quilcene, and a bit of marmalade toast on the nose with crisp apple, lemon, a hint of butterscotch and limestone on the palate. (But don't drink with charcroute :)
This is a marvelous Chablis. I loved the fresh nose and the balance of citrus notes, minerality and acidity on the palate. Not only that, it stayed fresh in the bottle after being opened and refrigerated over 4 days of drinking. I am going back and picking up a few more bottles. This wine will evolve over the next few more years.
Piedmont at Siggy's: A beautiful way to kick off the evening. The nose is extremely expressive with the smell of limes playing a leading role and apple, citrus and mineral adding secondary nuance. In the mouth this feels somewhat heavy but has good intensity and very nice flavors (apple, lime, mineral and oak/butter). I have no guess as to how this will develop with age, but it is showing very well right now.
Tasted for the summer Chablis dinner. Clean and crisp, this Chablis is ready to drink but has a few years to go. Should be consumed by 2009. Medium bodied and rich. It is slightly more acidic than the Valmur. -JBL
Pale straw. The theme here seems to be limes: on the nose, one gets elegant, floral citrus aromas, hints of vanilla and minerals. Currently rather tight but promising: medium bodied with razor-sharp focus. Ripe fruit again tending towards limes, stony minerals, long (almost endless) finish with superb balance and acidity. Really a lovely chablis and in a more traditional style than, say, the 2002s. Could hold a wine like this for quite a while. I would start drinking it a year or more from now at the earliest.
Domaine bottling. This is a gorgeous wine. Slight herbal aromoas intitially with broad lemon, lime, mineral and oyster shell palate impression. Has just enough softness and elegance in the mouthfeel to make it deliciously drinkable now. Sometimes some acid shows itself, but one would expect that in a young wine. This was even better with a citrus/cider/honey salad. For drinking now I prefer this to the Clos.
light nose with not much happening, on the palate very elegant with slight lemon and pear flavors. Not extremely fruit forward and somewhat restrained on the palate as well. The flavors plus the fantastic body of this wine make it a real winner. At it's price point ($45 for me) pretty much blows everything else out of the water if elegance is what you seek. Very glad I have a few more.
Maybe no surprise here, this delivers the Chablis Grand Cru experience with no compromises. Very pale straw yellow, with a greenish tint visible only in bright light. Aromas of citrus and finely powdered oyster shells seem to round out and intensify with time in the glass. Firmly acidic and intensely flavored ripe citrus notes dominate upon entry, while the mineral notes seem to linger on the finish. Way too young to be drinking now, still there is no mistaking the elegance of this wine that should age beautifully.
Wow! I loved this! Color is pale straw. Nose shows lemon, lime, hint of pear, slate/wet stone. On the palate, sharp lemon is at the fore with a hint of pear flavor, a noticable mineral component and a hint of salt finish this flavor profile. A sharp beam of acidity is also present and begs for more age. Very nice...a great Chablis. Thanks to Bill Wood for bringing this delight!
Pale yellow. This is the wine from Fevre that comes closest to some Cote de Beaune whites in my view. Still, a discreet but attractive flowery chardonnay nose with some background notes of wood spice. Developed well with air and was very enjoyable with a long finish, although not as attractive as the Valmur (killer wine!) and the Les Clos. But probably needs some years to show more CHablis minerality of chalk and limestone.
