William Fèvre | Burgundy, France

Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine

August 2017

94+

Vinous

Pale, green-tinged yellow. Captivating but youthfully reticent scents and flavors of citrus peel, white pepper, fresh herbs, crushed stone and white flowers, plus a whiff of rhubarb. Quite broad and full but not at all heavy in the mouth. This wine doesn't have the acid edge of the Bougros Côte Bouguerots but is wonderfully silky and horizontal, coating every square millimeter of the palate--and it's hardly short of energy! Most impressive today on the superb dusty, mounting finish.

Vinous

Very pale lemon-green. Pure, discreet, thoroughly ripe aromas of lime confit, white flowers, wild herbs and crushed stone. Broad and ripe on the attack, but with a magically weightless impression and outstanding inner-mouth energy to the flavors of lime and orange zest, grapefruit, white flowers and minerals. Utterly seamless, densely packed Clos with great rising, palate-saturating length. William Fèvre owns eight parcels representing a total of four hectares of vines in this great site, mostly at the top of the cru.

Wine Enthusiast

All the Fèvre vines are at the top of
this vineyard, giving very structured, long-lived wines. This is certainly an age-worthy wine, tightly coiled and nervy, with a strong mineral note at its heart. Lemon and quince flavors are caught up in the complex structure.

Wine Spectator

A distinctive aroma of sandalwood leads into flavors of vanilla, peach and melon in this balanced white, which has good cut, just needs time to shrug off the initial oak influence.

Sweet spice hints accent the green apple, greengage plum and mineral flavors in this lean, laser like white. Lanolin and spice accents linger on the fresh, persistent aftertaste.

Vinous

Pale green-tinged yellow. Smoky silex minerality, rhubarb and a hint of vanilla on the complex nose. Rich, broad, fine-grained and voluptuous, offering excellent concentration to its yellow fruit and smoky mineral flavors. Finishes very long but a bit youthfully aggressive. Not yet showing the complexity of the Bougros Côte Bouguerots but this needs time.

Decanter

A distinctly toasty nose, still reticent, with lime and apple fruit. Broad and rich, the palate shows ample sucrosity and intensity, lifted by fine acidity with a pungent and saline finish. Nutty and very long, and the wood seems well integrated.

The perfumed and penetrating nose is unusually expressive for a young Les Clos and there is so much iodine, mineral reduction and oyster shell nuances present that this could be from nowhere else but Chablis. The big, powerful and imposingly scaled flavors ooze both dry extract and a pungent minerality yet the balance is perfect on the intensely saline finish that is markedly dry but once again not really austere. This should be terrific though note that moderate patience will be required in the hopes that a bit more depth will develop with time in bottle.

The complexity, concentration and drive make this an excellent Clos in 2016. The fruits vary from citrus to exotic stone fruits. Green tropical and white floral notes, too. The palate has a staggeringly concentrated core of acid-drenched lemons, lime, peaches and green mangoes. Incredible depth, high acidity and a very long finish. A great Clos!

Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine

August 2015

93-95

Vinous

Very pale green-tinged yellow. Aromas of lemon gelato, soft citrus fruits and spices are lifted by a subtle floral topnote. Suave and thick but weightless. Less expressive by far than the Bougros but more penetrating thanks to solid mineral-driven acidity. Superb tension in the mouth. Very subtle and dry, with the saline, grapefruity finish going on and on. Didier Seguier will bottle the 2014 grand crus in December and January.
