  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($80) Bright, pale yellow-green. Knockout nose combines lime, metallic minerality and powdered stone. Wonderfully concentrated Preuses, offering a compelling combination of bracing citrus and mineral flavors and outstanding richness (the former coming from the southeast-facing vines and the latter from those facing west, notes director Stephane Follin-Arbelet). Wonderfully pure wine, finishing with outstanding cut, lift and length.

    A little more spicy and open than other FŠvre grands crus. Fine spice on the palate and a tangy finish. At last some concentration. (JH)

    Rich and concentrated, lending a roundness to the profile with peach, lemon and vanilla flavors. There's nice harmony and length, with a mouthwatering finish.

    The 2007 Chablis Preuses ' reflecting the nearly one-quarter of this site (in two parcels) that Fevre owns ' immediately forces the taster into a crustacean vocabulary, with the mineral, saline, sweet, and seductively savory character of scallops and lobster shell reduction coming to mind. A superb creaminess and uncanny sense of underlying density combines with levity and subtly citric refreshment ' imagine a rich, creamy shellfish stock whipped to a froth ' while wafting iris perfume and the wine's sheer extract combine for a sense of sugar-free sweetness in a soothing, sensationally long and distinctive finish. Lucky are those who can follow a few bottles of this for the next dozen or more years.

    This is every bit as elegant as the Valmur with nuanced, highly layered, discreet and very pure aromas of understated green fruit and almost pungent tidal pool aromas that are followed by rounded, focused and incredibly complex flavors displaying notes of warm stone and oyster shell. The texture and mouth feel of this are positively seductive as the finish is a liaison of richness and delicacy with that silky yet explosive finish that all the great examples of Preuses seem to possess. A wine of crystalline purity that is pure silk and class. A don't miss FŠvre '07.

    These wines were in various states of premox. Some better than others but overall disappointing for GC.

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.
