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.
