William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2012
One of the greatest domaines in Chablis founded by William Fevre in 1957 and its vineyard holdings include 12 hectares of premier cru and 16 hectares of grand Cru vines. The domaines fruit is harvested by hand, a rarity in Chablis, and rigorously sorted at the winery to ensure the highest quality. In recent times the amount of new oak used has been cut back and today the average age of the barrels in the cellar is five years. From the Petit Chablis to the domaines six Grand Cru wines, the quality is superb and the range from Domaine William Fevre is a benchmark for the wines of the region.
From Vaulorent. There is a lovely range of aromas present here with both white and yellow orchard fruit, sea shore scents and smoke, all topped by a note of mineral reduction. There is outstanding richness to the powerful and impressively concentrated middle weight flavors that retain a racy mouth feel thanks to the bracing acidity that imparts a real sense of lift to the driving finish. This is also quite good and worthy of your attention. Sweet Spot! Outstanding! Rating: (91-93)/2019+ Allen Meadows; Burghound
