William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Les Lys 2011
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.
This is almost achingly elegant with its airy nose of essence of tidal pool, mineral reduction and rose petal. The racy, intense and beautifully precise flavors are salty, clean and bone dry and though they are less complex than those of the Montmains, they are delicate and superbly refined. Outstanding!
