William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Montmains 2014
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.
The restrained and equally pure nose offers up notes of smoky mineral reduction, floral, white peach and sea breeze that complement well the salty, intense and beautifully detailed flavors that exude plenty of minerality on the attractively dry, focused and impressively persistent finish. This is good stuff and I very much like the balance. Rating: 89-92 Points; Issue #60; Tasted: Oct 2015; Drink: 2020+; Allen Meadows - Burghound
The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains comes from three parcels in Butteaux, Les Fôrets and Montmains. With 40% of the crop vinified and matured for 6 months in used oak, it has a strict and linear, oyster shell-tinged bouquet that is nicely defined. The palate is linear and strict with piercing acidity. This is very penetrating in the mouth, slightly saline with a tingle of lemongrass on the finish. This should be very fine once in bottle.
