William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Les Lys 2013
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.
A prominently floral nose enjoys added nuance in the form of sea breeze, citrus and iodine. There is more energy but less mid-palate density to the middle weight flavors that also exhibit ample minerality on the refined, harmonious and delicious finish. Presently this is less complex than the Vaillons though that may very well change with a few years of bottle age. Note that this could easily be enjoyed young as it's relatively forward.
