    September 3, 2017 - Young and very energetic still with quite a bit of an oaky forefront. Impressively bright though quite an intense wine , sweet/candied lemon touch. Definitely has not heard of premox to the point that we are thinking of risking our other bottle for a 2020 drinking date as we definitely believe some evolution will add a lot of depth to this wine. 92 for now.

    August 24, 2017 - Best bottles were excellent. Some bottle variation -- none oxidized, but a couple were heading in that direction (though definitley still drinkable).

    August 10, 2017 - great intensity, pain and acidity in this wine. everything i love.... no sign of pre-mox.... at all.... just a brilliant bottle of minerally, shellfish-infused bottle of linear focus.... frankly i loved it.... i know others have noticed lots of pre-mox from this producer, but frankly i would be hard pressed to say that the average is higher than my white burg average overall... great bottle.

    August 1, 2017 - 2008 WILLIAM FEVRE les CLOS CHABLIS GRAND CRU- at first this was really hot, but fortunately, it blew off and the goodness was revealed; there was pleasant mineral infused lemon-lime with some green apple showing up and then came some chalk and more minerality; it had an underlying streak of acidity that was evident throughout.

    July 16, 2017 - Premox. Utterly disappointed. I notice that the cork of this bottle is far softer and spongier than that of the other William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru wines. Suggest the cork has ruined the wine.
