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.

A racy, steely version, boasting lime blossom, green plum, chive and mineral flavors. Clean and persistent, with a lingering finish of green fruit and stone.

Chablis Domaine 2014

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.

Wine Spectator

This is delicate, featuring lemon, herb and stone flavors lifted by the fine acidity. Touches of seashore and oyster shell add depth as this coasts to a clean finish.

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!

This is rich and ripe, offering peach, honey and lemon flavors. Turns bracing and compact, with a long, minerally finish. Could benefit from short-term cellaring.

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 2015

August 2017

Vinous

Pale, green-tinged yellow. Subtle, discreet nose offers hints of citrus fruits, spices, white pepper and minerals. Then almost shockingly massive and powerful in the mouth, boasting bulletproof citrus and white peach flavors energized by harmonious acidity (but barely four grams per liter, according to Didier Séguier). More robust and masculine than the Preuses and drier and more bracing on the long finish, this sappy wine needs time to harmonize. But as with all of these 2015s, there's nothing hard about this grand cru.
