William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre 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.
(from two .5 ha parcels divided between 1/3 Pied d’Aloup and the rest from Chapelot). A ripe, elegant and strikingly layered nose features notes of dried flower, citrus, mineral reduction and a smoky hint. There is really lovely detail and intensity to the beautifully mineral-inflected medium weight plus flavors that possess excellent richness before terminating in a complex, balanced, long and markedly dry finish. A moderately firm acid spine shapes the flavor profile and as it usually is this is a wine of class and grace. (91-94)/2020+ Don't Miss! Outstanding! Allen Meadows; Burghound
