    Here the wood influence is somewhat more noticeable though not enough to materially detract from the otherwise pure, cool and high-toned white flower, stone and sea breeze suffused aromas that complement well the rich, powerful and intensely mineral-driven flavors that possess fine focus and verve on the explosively long and oyster shell-infused finish. This is seriously impressive in absolute terms but especially so in the context of the vintage.

    Nose is both creamy and mineral. Palate is fine and dry and textured - just lacking in intensity. But long. (JH)

    Pale yellow. Subtle stone and citrus fruit aromas complicated by white pepper and a whiff of honey. Wonderfully rich and solid in the mouth, but with a distinct youthful austerity to the flavors of orange peel, iodine and pepper. The palate-dusting finish is tactile, dry and extremely long. This aristocratic wine is still an infant and may well merit an even higher score with extended cellaring.

    Ripe orchard fruit graces this soft white, picking up a grapefruit peel bitterness by the finish. Shows moderate concentration and length.

    The 2009 Chablis Les Clos is a beauty. Stunningly rich and deep, it possesses gorgeous textural richness and depth in its layers of intensely perfumed peaches and apricots. The fruit totally saturates the palate with incredible depth and nuance in its perfume. Seductive and enthralling at first, the Clos turns positively explosive on the finish. Gorgeous, expressive scents linger on the close. Fevre's parcels are on the limestone-rich upper slopes of Les Clos. About 50% of these vineyards were planted in the 1940s.

  • 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.
