Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 93-94

Tasted assembled a good half year before bottling, the Fevre 2012 Chablis Les Preuses beautifully exhibits the intrigue and allure inherent in this great site. Smoky black tea, mint, wild forest fungus, kelp and musk rise from the glass, to be joined on a silken yet bright palate by the saline-sweet, saliva-inducing savor of fresh scallop and the succulence of lime-laced white peach. This lingering beauty ought to prove memorably intriguing and delightful through at least 2022. As Seguier sees it, the parcel of Fevre's Preuses located on the border with the Cote de Bouguerots serves for mineral character, while a strip that extends up into the heart of Preuses conveys its exotic animal (or shellfish) and fungal aspects.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93(+?)

Pale, green-tinged yellow. Very pure but subdued aromas of lime, white pepper and caraway seed. Rich and intense but very dry and backward, with citrus and floral flavors currently overshadowed by a strong gingery quality. Less expressive today than the Cote Bouguerots but very concentrated, classic and long. This will need a good six or seven 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.
