Chablis Domaine 2015

March 2017

Wine Spectator

A focused, lemon-, apple- and melon-flavored version, with accents of seashore and stone. The mouthwatering finish lingers well, echoing citrus and stone elements.

View From the Cellar

The “estate bottling” of Chablis villages from William Fèvre is even a step up from the very lovely Champs Royaux in 2015. The bouquet is deeper and more refined, wafting from the glass in a mélange of lime, green apple, a touch of oyster shell, chalky soil and fruit blossoms. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very nicely balanced, with a good core, fine focus and impressive length and grip on the vibrant and nascently complex finish. This is really a serious example of AC Chablis this year!

Chablis Domaine 2014

July 2016

90

Vinous

Oyster-shell reduction and a note of lime on the classic Chablis nose. Dense, juicy and firm, boasting excellent definition to its flavors of oyster shell, lime and white flowers. Penetrating but not aggressive in spite of its firm acidity, finishing with excellent subtle length and grip. This terrific village wine is an exceptional value--but make sure you get the Domaine bottling.

Chablis Domaine 2015

April 2018

Wine & Spirits

A reductive, stainless-steel style of Chablis, this gains some weight from the concentration of fruit. It’s succulent and leesy while remaining clean, zesty and fresh, needing bottle time for the components to come together.

Chablis Domaine 2010

April 2013

Wine Spectator

A bracing white, whose flavors of green apple, lemon and mineral are etched in the racy structure. Steely in the best sense, this ends with a lingering flourish of mineral. Drink now through 2016.

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros "Côte Bouguerots" Domaine 2013

April 2016

93

Wine & Spirits

Fèvre owns 15.39 acres of Bougros, almost half the total cru. They separate out a 5.2-acre parcel on the steepest slope for Clos Bouguerots, using the balance for this grand cru. About 60 percent of the wine ages in older French oak casks (averaging six years of age), which helps point up the savory structure of the wine, reading in pale umami notes of miso. The fruit of the wine is youthfully pale as well, powerful in its delivery of chamomile, dried hay and jasmine scents of white grapes. A mouthwatering young Chablis, this is built to age.

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros "Côte Bouguerots" Domaine 2013

August 2015

93

Vinous

Bright, pale yellow-green. Precise aromas of lemon, lime and oyster shell, plus a note of mineral reduction. In the mouth, a sexy toasty nuance complements the ripe stone fruit and saline mineral flavors. Nicely pliant wine but also boasts very good inner-mouth tension and purity. Finishes tactile and long, showing very little impact of the vintage. Superb.

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros "Côte Bouguerots" Domaine 2012

April 2015

Wine Spectator

Melon, apple, stone, seashore and earth aromas and flavors ride the vivid structure, finishing long. A grapefruit peel note lingers. Shows some flesh, too, delivering terrific balance and drive.

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros "Côte Bouguerots" Domaine 2014

October 2016

Burghound.com

Once again, based on the nose alone, this could be nothing else but Chablis with its mélange of tidal pool, mineral reduction, citrus blossom and discreet spice nuances. There is fantastic detail to the focused, mineral-driven and powerful middle weight plus flavors that do a slow build from the mid-palate all the way back to the explosively long, balanced and bone dry finish. This appears to be drawn directly from liquid Kimmeridgian and should also amply reward longer-term cellaring. In a word, brilliant. 96/2026+

View From the Cellar

Given how superb the 2015 “regular” Bougros is this year from Domaine Fèvre, I have very high expectations for the Côte de Bouguerots and they were not disappointed! The bouquet is deep, complex and very refined, delivering a fine constellation of green apple, pear, lime, crystalline, chalky minerality, spring flowers and a bit of flintiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is very pure, full-bodied and utterly svelte in profile, with a rock solid core, great cut and grip and outstanding focus on the long, pure and seamlessly balanced finish.
