    July 21, 2017 - 3 hours in glass and this still wasn't enough time to fully allow the wine to emerge. The finish and balance are truly outstanding even though this wine is probably 5 plus years away from its prime. If you open soon give this wine either a couple hour decant or pop cork out and let sit for 8 hours.

    July 16, 2017 - Elegant mix of wet stones, lemon zest, green apple, oyster shell with a hint of gunflint. Very lively acidity. Long finish.

    July 15, 2017 - Very nice mature Chablis. Lots of minerals and butter on the nose and palate. Not a hint of pre-mox. Smooth and balanced. Almost hurts to hold it in my mouth. Delicious!

    July 1, 2017 - Looking gorgeous at twelve years old. The nose has brilliant oyster shells, lime and lemon zest, vanilla, star fruit, nugget. The body is medium in stature with bright but settled acid and a nice lushness in the back end. There's nice honey flavor and texture, but it isn't sweet. The texture of this wine is incredibly pleasant, it's the highlight of the wine for me. There is also sea brine, parsley, and green onion. This still has good acid and life ahead of it, but doesn't seem to need anymore time to reveal its full self.

    March 28, 2017 - 93. Big distinct bouquet of honey, Brie and stone. Very vibrant palate with more mineral and almost boytritis-like texture paired with a crisp acidity-the finish though is smooth. Plenty of life remaining , drink or hold.

Sommelier Journal

    (William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Burgundy) Classic Chablis is quickly becoming an endangered species, so finding a wine that has this austere character of pronounced, briny minerality and
    racy acidity without too much winemaking cosmetic surgery is not an easy task. Enter the 2005 Fèvre Les Clos. It has all of the above in spades and is
    just now hitting its stride; expect it to be enjoyable over the next seven to 10 years.

    (Fevre William Chablis Le Clos) More waxy and tight than the Preuses. Mineral and very, very long - lovely!
