Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95+

($57; bottled in December of 2003) Very pale, green-tinged color. Reticent, somewhat reduced, soil-driven aromas of crushed stone, petrol and lime blossom. Extremely primary today, but already hinting at great incipient complexity, with notes of talc, citrus skin, white flowers and white pepper. Dense and fat with sheer extract; a real mouthful of liquid minerals. Superconcentrated, seamless and penetrating. The Valmur is easier to taste today, but this should be an extraordinary wine with six or seven years of additional aging. It's entirely possible that most of the top 2002 crus here will close down in bottle over the next year or two.

Great mass. Great depths. Lots of acidity, but also lots of ripe green fruit flavours. More sinewy and structured than Les Preuses.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Domaine William Fevre owns a 4.15 hectare (10.25 acres) parcel in the highest sector of Chablis's most famed vineyard, Les Clos. The 2002 (domaine), like so many infant wines from this hallowed terroir, is aromatically austere, barely revealing notes of flint. On the palate, however, it is exceptional. This impressive effort displays huge depth and concentration, a broad, ample personality, and immense underlying power. Loads of slate and flint flavors are found in its satin-textured character as well as throughout its 45+ second finish. This big, bold wine will require 4-5 years of cellaring, drink it between 2009 and 2018.

Expresses its Grand Cru status, with full, ripe brisk and bright fruit and framed by a touch of brett and just the right amount of acidity. Plenty of the appellation's classic minerality, too - so much so that I could almost feel the rocks rolling around in my mouth. I consumed this wine right as it entered its drinking window. It's great now, but just wait.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay


Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
