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

(Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses) Light yellow color; tart lemon, apple, baked apple nose, with depth; apple, lemon, mineral palate; medium-plus finish 92+ pts. (group's and my WOTF; the most approachable of the four '02 Grand Cru Chablises we sampled blind in this flight)
(Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses) Light yellow color; lovely sweet lemon, vanilla and sea shell nose; lovely, elegant, tart citrus, especially lime, palate with minerals; medium-plus finish 93+ pts.
(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.
