William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent 2012
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 than the Montmains with hints of dried yellow orchard fruit on the otherwise classic Chablis aromas of green fruit and wet stone. There is a beguiling succulence to the intense, precise and mineral-driven middle weight flavors that culminate in a clean, bone dry, balanced and strikingly persistent finish. This is one the best examples of the Fèvre Vaillons that I have seen. Sweet Spot! Outstanding! Rating: (90-93)/2018+ Allen Meadows; Burghound
