Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine 2014

October 2015

93-96

Burghound.com

A broad-ranging array features notes of spice, green apple, grapefruit, lemon rind and copious Chablis elements. Remarkably for a wine that is relatively quite refined, the medium-bodied and concentrated flavors are even more powerful than those of the Bougros, all wrapped in a superbly complex, saline and balanced finish where the citrus character telegraphed by the nose reappears on the explosive finale. There is a bit of wood in evidence but I doubt that it will take very long before it is fully integrated. In sum, this is one to strongly consider.

Wine Advocate

The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru les Clos has a crisp Granny Smith apple and yellow plum-scented bouquet that is nicely defined, if lacking the "spark" of the 2014 les Clos. The palate is very well balanced with a fresh, crisp opening. I like the energy conveyed by this les Clos and its precision from start to finish, notwithstanding the seam of salinity that surfaces towards the finish. Excellent.

As it was from
cask last year this remains quite closed but aggressive swirling liberates ripe aromas of sea breeze, pear, lemon rind, oyster
shell and mineral reduction plus an abundance of typical floral scents. The large-scaled flavors are overtly powerful and
impressively concentrated as there is plenty of palate staining dry extract that also buffers the very firm acidity that supports
and shapes the gorgeously precise finish. This explosively long effort possesses exquisite balance and the tightly wound

A broad ranging and wonderfully elegant array features notes of spice, green apple, grapefruit, lemon rind and copious Chablis elements. Remarkably for a wine that is gorgeously refined, the medium-bodied and concentrated flavors are even more powerful than those of the Bougros and Valmur, all wrapped in a superbly complex, saline and balanced finish where the citrus character telegraphed by the nose reappears on the explosive finale. There is a bit of wood in evidence but I doubt that it will take very long before it is fully integrated. In sum, this is one to strongly consider.

Wine Advocate

The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is 70% vinified in oak barrels for six months before maturation in stainless steel only. It has a very precise but powerful bouquet with lemon rind and flint scents, though it takes time to really open up. The palate is fresh and crisp with lime and apricot on the entry. The acidity is sharp and penetrating, gently building toward an intense, bitter-lemon finish that is elegant and refined. This is very impressive.

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.

Wine Spectator

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.
