    Tasted alongside the corresponding 2012 and 2011, Fevre's 2010 Chablis Les Preuses accentuates both the sweet-saline savor of scallop and the briny, nutty, oyster liqueur and seaweed that are also part and parcel of the subsequent renditions, resulting in an experience that taps the imagination and salivary glands with equal urgency. Struck flint smokiness and fusil notes lend persistent pungency and bittersweet floral perfume further allure, while fresh citrus serves for luscious refreshment. This finishes with superb complexity and much of the mystery and clarity found in the 2012. When one considers the contrast between baked-in concentration of a torrid mid-August in 2012 and the cool but desiccating north wind of September 2010, I wonder that the two wines are not even more strikingly different. But perhaps the contribution of the site itself is, after all, definitive.

  • Burghound | Rating: 96

    A pure, cool, airy and exceptionally stylish nose of green fruit, citrus zest, iodine and shellfish slides gracefully into rich, round and brilliantly well-delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess a silky mouth feel and an explosively long and bone dry finish. This impeccably poised and understated effort is a classic Les Preuses with its Zen-like harmony and sheer class.

    Bright, pale lemon-yellow color. Knockout nose melds pineapple, white peach, lemon oil, wild herbs, flowers and cut hay, plus a whiff of menthol. Wonderfully silky, dense and pure, with subtle sweetness cut by brilliant acidity. Utterly electric Chablis: saline, tactile and palate-saturating from start to resounding finish. I'd forget this one in the cellar: it may eventually merit an even higher rating. In 2010 and 2011, this wine challenges Vincent Dauvissat's supernal Preuses.

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.
