Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94-97

Pale color. Musky, minerally aromas of lemon, mint, raw pineapple and quinine; very backward and very Chablis. Silky on entry, then dense in the middle, with terrific thrust and depth to its very dry but ripe flavors of citrus peel, minerals and spices. Wonderfully concentrated, solid, powerfully structured grand cru with outstanding minerally persistence. Potentially the best vintage yet for this bottling and one of the early highlights of the vintage.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95-96

Fevre's 2006 Chablis Les Clos reflects its location in the chalky, stony upper reaches of that cru, with juicy lime; high-toned herbal essences including a hint of peppermint; fresh pit fruits; and a palpably chalky mineral dimension. Incredibly dense, yet shapely and not in the least heavy, this penetrates with uncanny grip, leaving your palate absolutely wrung-out. There is no doubt a wealth of nuance not even perceivable at this stage, but the stage is already set for an unforgettable show to reward anyone lucky and patient enough to follow this for 15 or more years.

Burghound | Rating: 95

(from 4 separate parcels totaling 4.11 ha, 3 of which are all at the top of the slope) An airy, expressive and ultra refined and pure nose trimmed in very subtle wood notes offer up aromas of white flower, quinine, saline, minerals and seashore nuances that give way to rich and robust, indeed huge flavors that are perhaps a bit less refined than those of the Valmur or Preuses but there is another dimension here of depth that more than compensates. A great wine with a long future that should develop slowly yet because of all the mid-palate fat, be enjoyable young.

Jancis Robinson | Rating: 18-

Riper citrus on the nose, even a touch of honey despite the intense minerality of youth. Citrus with a little white pepper. Broader on the palate than les Preuses. Powerful, great clarity and extremely crisp on the finish – quite eye watering. Needs more time than most but not sure it will have a longer life. (JH)

Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

High-toned, showing lanolin, vanilla and citrus aromas and flavors. This is firm, but a bit tight now, with a compact finish. Needs time to harmonize.

I could dive into the bouquet of this wine - creamy fruit and the perfect touch of vanilla/oak. The mouthfeel is well structured and the finish is a bomb!

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.
