William Fèvre | Burgundy, France
Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons Domaine
The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons comes from 3.5 hectares located in the heart of Vaillons and it is where William Fevre's harvest always begins since it's one of the earliest maturing parcels. It has a leesy, well-defined nose with plenty of green apple and citrus fruit. The palate is more rounded in the mouth, especially compared to the Montmains, harmonious and I suspect it will be more approachable than many of Fevre's 14s. This is fine and should drink well over the next 5 to 7 years.
