Bright, green-tinged color. Spicy stone fruits, grapefruit, fresh pineapple, flint and minerals on the nose. Very ripe, fleshy, broad and sweet but with lovely integrated acidity giving shape to the grapefruit, pineapple and spice flavors. As round as this is, it boasts an exhilarating sugar/acid balance. Tightens up on the very long finish-a good sign for the wine's potential in bottle.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90-91+

The Fevre 2006 Chablis Vaudesir projects lemon and herbs along with a strikingly saline, chicken stock-like character such as only Chablis from among the world's wines can display. Despite its impressive amplitude and high but flattering fat content, this isn't expressing overtly ripe or tropical fruits, but instead hammers home the messages of meat and minerals, along with an equally unexpected severity of bright citrus in the finish. Is this impressively concentrated and intriguingly mysterious wine just in an awkward stage, I wonder?

Smoky minerality over citrus and green apple. Very fresh, very pure. Then more savoury on the palate with a gently grainy grip of youth. Tight, arrow-like and persistent. (JH)

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.
