    August 5, 2017 - 100% in tact bottle, and showing very nicely. The nose is sprightly with lemons, mossy stones and delicate white flowers. Easy to drink and very enjoyable, if not terribly complex. Very typical chablis character comes to the forefront with a little air - plenty of acidity, minerality, and a touch of richness through the mid-palate. Better slightly cooler, as it started to spread a bit when it warmed up. We drank this with friends who like big oaky CA chardonnays, and it was the perfect example to use for contrast.

    April 22, 2017 - Very good 1st cru Chablis. Very nice balance of acidity, fruit and minerality. Straw yellow, youthful. Had run of bad luck with Fevre from this vintage with pre-mox and just plain over-maturity, but those were GC. I will stick to Premier Cru from now with 08 vintage.

    December 28, 2015 - Light colour, just beginning to go golden. Aromatic with notes of small white flowers, lemons, green apples and oyster shell with some salinity and iodine. Lovely, sparkling acidity, provides a backbone for the Chablis. Serving it blind, people thought it an '11, then a '10. Below medium weight, this marks the Fèvre out as 1er, not Grand Cru. Good Chablis typicity (less tropical fruit than the previous bottle). Resting more on its acidity and minerality, than on its fruit, with chalky, citric and saline. A very good 1er Chablis. Ready to go now, it should drink in this style for at least the next five years.
