    Extremely closed, Archetypal wet stones with a fine dustiness. Oatmeal flavour and texture and finely integrated acidity. Power and length with tight freshness all the way through. (JH)

    Fevre owns or controls nearly one quarter of the acreage in Preuses. Their 2006 Chablis Preuses marries fruit from a southeast-facing parcel just above the Cote de Bouguerots and conducive to |cool| fruit and overt minerality, with a southwest-facing parcel inherently inclined toward richness that was harvested at hugely high ripeness even before this year's ban de vendange. From its aroma through its impressively dense and expansive palate display, through its lingering finish, this sensually extravagant expression of Preuses (in a manner distinctly reminiscent of Vincent Dauvissat's) is totally suffused with the savory salinity and sweetness of shrimp and lobster shell reduction. White peach and lime occupy a discreet position, iris and lily a more prominent one, wafting alluringly throughout. This silken-textured beauty should be worth holding for a dozen or more years.

    Pale yellow-green. Very ripe aromas of yellow peach, pepper and spices; far less intellectual than the Valmur. Plump, sweet and easygoing, with full ripeness and a suggestion of slightly elevated alcohol. This is more aggressive than some of the other grand crus here but offers the advantage of earlier approachability. This fruit was obviously very ripe: the team picked it on September 14, two days before the ban In fact, I happened to be at William Fevre that morning in 2006 and recall tasting the grapes as they went into the vat.

    Tasty, yet also shows a sense of place. Ripe, almost tropical, and spicy notes give way to yellow plum, herb and mineral flavors. This has a firm structure underneath the baby fat and needs time to come together.

  • Burghound | Rating: 94

    The touch of wood spice this displayed last year has now been completely integrated though the original anise, clove and saline notes remain to add nuance to the pretty and elegant mix of white and yellow fruit aromas that introduce round and generous flavors that offer up real volume and mid-palate density, all wrapped around a firm acid spine on the refined, pure and explosive finish. This is positively stunning, certainly in an absolute sense but particularly so in the context of the vintage. One to look for and like the Valmur, this almost vibrates with an underlying sense of energy.

    Nose has an excellent flavor concentration, but, like the Bougros, the minerality on the palate is overbearing at the moment.

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.
