Sweet lime, buddleia, lily, and hints of the ocean scent Fevre's 2007 Chablis Bougros. On a creamy, dense palate, this gushes with liquid floral perfume, citrus, and an uncanny (more Preuses-typical) concentration of shrimp shell reduction and scallop whose sweet, saline, subtly iodine-bitter savor carries into a long, luscious yet lively conclusion. It took a while, relates Didier Seguier, to tame the inherent vigor of these deep, moisture-retentive soils, but tough love has - as this wine demonstrates - permitted the retention of infectiously ripe acidity and finesse to accompany Bougros largesse. Plan to follow this for a decade.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91-91

Pale yellow. Youthfully subdued nose offers crushed stone and mint and conveys an impression of mineral force. Then very fresh and very ripe in the mouth, with fat yet vibrant flavors of white peach, white pepper and fresh herbs. Full and rich but quite suave, finishing with superb breadth and elegance. A no-brainer, whether you're a Chablis veteran or a neophyte.

Green plum, cut grass and chive flavors mark this tightly wound white. A mineral note emerges as this plays out on the sharply etched finish. Needs time. 80 cases imported.

Classic chablis. At its peak or just past. Mineral, clay, seabreeze, a bit of grapefruit. The genuine article, a nice effort.

Needs to open up in the glass. Starts of dry. Shows flavors of stone fruits and lemon curd. Notes of wet stone and minerals add complexity. Good depth and roundness complemented by well balanced acidity. Good, lengthy finish.

This was rather disappointing. Indeed, Neil wondered if the bottle was corked and Jackie did not like it. I found it with a quite characteristic minerality on the palate but little else.

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.
