International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92(juice from Fevre's north-facing vines here could be blended into its Vaillons but is vinified and bottled separately) Pale, green-tinged color. Captivating aromas of lime blossom, powdered stone and mint; I would not have picked the vintage here. Very rich and strong in extract yet light on its feet, with a distinctly cool character and a dominant flavor of dusty stone. This is already tightening up. Classic long, rising finish of minerals and lime boasts excellent energy and grip.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: July/August 2007
Burghound | Rating: 91Here too the nose is largely dominated by wonderfully pure and intense floral notes but as is typical of the vineyard, there are also subtle spice hints that lead to textured flavors that possess a seductive mouth feel, ultimately culminating in a mineral, refined and linear finish. I very much like the underlying sense of tension here and while there is not quite as much depth as exhibited by the Montmains, it's close.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 4th Quarter, 2007
Wine Advocate | Rating: 93Reflecting its relatively cool eastern exposure above Milly, the Fevre 2006 Chablis Les Lys was (as usual for this site) picked near the end of harvest. From 50-year-old vines and vinified half-and-half in tank and barrel, this displays a hint of vanillin and spice that reflect the presence of wood. With a gorgeous nose of iris, rowan, and chalk dust, it comes to the palate with impressive sheer density, and a winning combination of creamy richness of texture with brightness and grip. Saline, sweetly savory, chalky, and almost chewy tactile mineral dimensions vie for attention with luscious pit fruits and persistent inner mouth florality leading to a superbly concentrated finish.Author: David Schildknecht
The Fevre family has been an integral part of the Chablis landscape for upwards of 250 years. Since the beginning, though, they have been adamant about protecting and promoting the typicity of Chablis, whose whites draw a unique and well-defined line in the sand when it comes to mineral-laden French Chardonnay. The grand crus from this estate represent the pinnacle of purity and intensity of world-class Chardonnay from France and are characterized by superb delineations of acidity, mineral, crystalline fruit and delicate floral nuance.
