William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses 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 parcels of vines that total 2.55 ha, or 22% of the entire appellation). A discreet application of wood sets off a cool and ultra-elegant nose that offers up scents of pear, white flowers, sea water and oyster shell. There is excellent volume to the medium-bodied and admirably concentrated flavors yet this is not really a powerful wine so much as it is focused and harmonious; indeed the word Zen describes the gorgeously well-balanced finish. This will be approachable young but I would advise holding it for 7 to 10 years. (93-95)/2021+ Don't Miss! Allen Meadows; Burghound
