Opened somewhat nice with honeyed notes and a briny character, suspected this was past prime and as it continued to open the oxidation character took over and while drinkable this bottle was certainly OTH. Don't have much hope for remaining bottles, but drinkable with the right crowd.
Quality Chop House (Quality Chop House): Served a little warm and glasses too small. A little richer and fuller than the Preuses. Similar on palate. A richness and density here and apparent ripeness that has people in the Cote de Beaune. Proper GC weight, and it is doing that maturing GC Chablis thing of being more C de Beaune than Chablis. Really quite full and persistent. Lovely without being electrifying. In this environment the Clos shines, whereas previously the Preuses has had more precision and focus, but possibly overlooked here. ****

(Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos) Light yellow color; very ripe green fruit, kiwi, gooseberry, nearly a NZ Sauvignon Blanc type nose; green on palate too, tart gooseberry, tart kiwi, gunpowder, mineral palate, with off putting green notes; medium-plus finish (seems like the cursed '04, time-delayed Burgundy green meanies have claimed another victim, as this was wonderful last year)
(Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos) Light butter yellow color; nice, glittery, lemon, lime, green fruit nose; steely, tasty, tart lemon, mineral, lime palate; medium-plus finish 93+ pts.
(Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos) Tight sea air nose, that opens after a half hour to a more minerally and prickly rock salt nose; big, tight, but structured with minerality; medium-plus finish
(Fevre Chablis "Les Clos") Nose of crushed seahshells, some granny smith apple skins and more crushed seashells. Very aromatic. The palate is elegant but rich with a whopper of a finish. High-toned minerality and wonderful inner mouth aromas. The expansive finish pumps mineral-tinged fruit. Great wine that really stains the palate. Will benefit from cellaring but not a sin to open up now.
