William Fèvre | Burgundy, France

Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine

The complexity, concentration and drive make this an excellent Clos in 2016. The fruits vary from citrus to exotic stone fruits. Green tropical and white floral notes, too. The palate has a staggeringly concentrated core of acid-drenched lemons, lime, peaches and green mangoes. Incredible depth, high acidity and a very long finish. A great Clos!

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.

Vinous

Very pale green-tinged yellow. Aromas of lemon gelato, soft citrus fruits and spices are lifted by a subtle floral topnote. Suave and thick but weightless. Less expressive by far than the Bougros but more penetrating thanks to solid mineral-driven acidity. Superb tension in the mouth. Very subtle and dry, with the saline, grapefruity finish going on and on. Didier Seguier will bottle the 2014 grand crus in December and January.

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 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.

Due to the hail damage in the domaine’s smaller parcel in this vineyard, overall yields were only thirty-five hectoliters per hectare in 2015, but the wine has turned out utterly brilliant and is the best of the range this year at Domaine William Fèvre. The bouquet is very pure and nascently complex, delivering a magical blend of apple, pear, flinty minerality, white flowers, wet stones and a youthful topnote of citrus peel.

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.

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

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.
