thought this was fantastic - just short of 93/94 rating, opened and was happy that the color had not darkened a bit, boded well, then on the pnp i found it dilute but no oxidation, tiff said she tasted some caramel which to her said oxidation, with an hour to two hours in decanter it brightened up significantly and was really really good -- acid came forward and citrus fruit as well, excited to have my next / last bottle soon, i wouldn't wait on this one but if you have a well stored bottle it should be a great drink with 60 plus minuted of air

(Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses) A wine sourced from Fèvre vineyards, hence Domaine William Fèvre. A pale golden hue in the glass. The nose is maturing nicely, and first and foremost it is free of any signs of oxidation. There is a touch of honeycomb and oatmeal, but also complex and slightly sweaty aromas of cheese and biscuit. Full and textured on the palate, rich, with a complex depth of aromas like the nose, but also a blend of creamed stone fruits with a citrus twist, Fresh, well structured, slightly sour in terms of fruit character, but with a soft creamy texture behind the grip. Lovely wine, delicious now, but with room for improvement.
