Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 91-92

Tasted assembled from tank, Fevre's 2012 Chablis Vaillons ' incorporating, as usual, a bit of adjacent Chatains among its many constituent lots ' delivers a striking aromatic melange of greenhouse-like foliage and bittersweet floral perfume, along with archetypal Kimmeridgian notes of kirsch, lemon, smoke, fusil oil, chalk, iodine, and ocean breeze. The sense of palpable density and mineral matter here results in an impression that I imagine capable of staining the teeth; and the long, focused and invigorating finish offers dynamically undulating layers of mineral, floral, herbal and citric elements. True fans of Chablis as well as rock-hounds are going to delight in this through at least 2018.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

Ripe but extremely closed nose hints at white pepper. Broad and energetic but tight in the mouth, with terrific limey thrust and a brisk flavor of green apple. Finishes fresh, tactile and long. This sharply delineated wine will show a stronger mineral character with a few years of cellaring.

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.
