Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The Fevre 2011 Chablis Preuses deftly combines textural creaminess with lift, clarity and refreshment, and offers luscious white peach and fresh scallop suffused with maritime minerality and tinged with kelp and peach kernel. At once soothing and stimulating, not to mention mouthwatering, the finish here plumbs oceanic depths but brings you back to the surface thirsting for another sip (if not gulp). You should be able to derive memorable pleasure from this through 2018, but I would still favor its company over the next couple of years.

Pale yellow-green. Lovely pristine, high-pitched nose combines lemon, lime, white flowers, anise and white pepper. Juicy and nicely ripe, with terrific sappy intensity and grip to the tactile flavors of lime, grapefruit pith and flowers. The long, building finish displays terrific cut and tension. The 2012 version is larger-scaled and richer but this is every bit as penetrating. At 12.7% alcohol, it's nicely ripe but also very easy to drink.

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.
