More Vintages and Sizes of William Fevre - Chablis Les Vaillons 1er Cru:
Author: Allen Meadows
Issue: Issue 28
(from Vaillons and Châtains) This is also quite ripe with upper register but slightly exotic yellow fruit, spice and lovely iodine nuances that lead to sweet, textured, intense and vibrant middle weight flavors offer very good delineation and excellent finishing punch on the noticeably dry finale. In sum, easy to like but not classic.

($42; from a very warm site that's always picked early) Pale color. Ripe aromas of smoke and earth, with suggestions of exotic fruits. Ample and rich but less pure and energetic than the Lys despite possessing solid underlying minerality and an enticing sugar/acid balance.
Trust Rating: 100
Tasted On: 08/13/2009
Nearly three hours from opening and first taste, to wringing the last few drops out of the bottle. Curiously, at all times, the aromas seemed ripe, open, and a touch exotic, as you'd expect from the vintage and site, but the flavors, mouth feel, and finish were, relatively speaking, restrained (crisp, taut, and focused) if not entirely classic. Not in the top rank of Fevre PCrus, or Vaillons, or 2005 Chablis generally, but not disappointing either.
