William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons 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 ~75% Vaillons with the remainder from Mélinots and Châtains). This is clearly riper with background traces of exoticism present on the citrus-inflected yellow orchard fruit aromas. There is impressive concentration to the extract-rich middle weight flavors that possess ample minerality that continues onto the almost salty, clean and relatively dry finish. This is more powerful than it usually is and while it should age well, it will drink well young too. (90-92)/2019+ Outstanding; Allen Meadows; Burghound
