    September 22, 2017 - No PreMox but not singing today. Some lime flavours but flat with muted aromas.

    August 11, 2017 - Last bottle and now wish for more. Stunningly young and taut, with at least another 10 years ahead. Lemon peel, lime, quinine and stone with faint white flowers. Decanted 2 hours and it needs it. Too bad there is so much bottle inconsistency here. This was the apogee of mine.

    August 2, 2017 - Popped and poured, drank over 3 hours. Very nice from the start with slightly increasing complexity over the first hour.

    August 1, 2017 - Bottle #1 of 2. Wow! I lucked out - this is a young and pristine bottle. Bright, light yellow. Huge lemon meringue, saline, and more minerals than I can remember in a long time. Hints of age related (not premoxed) butterscotch at the beginning , then fading to pure crystalline goodness. Score! This bottle good for another decade, easily.

    June 13, 2017 - Two evenings, two very different Fèvre Grand Cru experiences: On the nose, lactic and creamy, suggesting pastry and very overripe Brie. 'Formaldehyde', someone said. Similar in the mouth, cheesy and milky. Lacking any Chardonnay, let alone Chablis, typicity, I guessed the wine to be a (very bad) Grüner Veltliner. Thierry thought it perhaps a Spanish white of some sort. On the reveal, clearly, badly premoxed. It had been well stored and there was no visible problem with the cork ...

    (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)

Rockss and Fruit

    (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.
