    ($74) Pale green-yellow color. Sexy, subtly perfumed nose offers lime and lemon zest, crushed stone and white pepper, plus a steely nuance. Sweet, supple and fine-grained; very suave and silky but still quite young, conveying a brooding impression of energy and a touch of spice. Best today on the very youthful, palate-dusting aftertaste. Compared to this bright and perfumed wine, the Bougros is almost exotic.

    Aged 12-15 months on fine lees in oak. More citrus and nutty aromas than the Valmur. Very intense, dry but mouthwatering. Cleansing and pure and very long. (JH)

    An enticing mix of apple and green plum notes, with a hint of seashore and spice, mingle with the bright structure in this white. There's a slight grain to the texture, and this ends on the tart side, yet there's plenty of substance midpalate. Needs time.

    Both marine and smoky, fusil, crushed chalk mineral elements confront the taster already in the nose from the Fevre 2008 Chablis Preuses, along with fresh lime, mirabelle, apricot, and cherry distillate. Adamant stoniness; iodine; apricot kernel, plum pit, and cherry stone bitterness as well as a firm texture lend the palate a certain austerity and restraint, without the meltingly savory crustacean or musky animal dimensions I usually associate with this site. But there is more than compensatory complexity of alternate sorts as well as sheer density. A late burst of sheer lusciousness of citrus and pit fruit beautifully complements the depth of piquant and saline mineral notes, and sets up an oscillating dynamic in a strikingly sustained finish. Give this a few years in bottle before revisiting and anticipate at least ten or a dozen years of high-performance.

    This would be almost impossible to miss this wine's origins as the marine influence on the pungently mineral, airy and superbly elegant nose is extremely strong with Chablis character to burn. The seductive middle weight flavors brim with dry extract, which does a perfect job of buffering the structural elements on the mouth coating and sappy finish that seems to go on and on. This is very Preuses in its Zen-like sense of harmony and is clearly very classy juice.

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.
