William Fèvre | Burgundy, France
Chablis Grand Cru Valmur Domaine
This is also discreet to the point of being all but mute and only aggressive swirling manages to liberate the cool aromas of citrus, green fruit, petrol and a broad array of typical Chablis elements. Here too there is excellent size, weight and concentration to the big-bodied flavors that possess an almost pungent salinity on the balanced, powerful and borderline painfully intense finale. This is seriously good stuff but note well that plenty of patience will be required.
