William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses 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.
Along with the Côte Bouguerots and Les Lys, this possesses the most elegant nose in the range with an ultra-pure mixture of green fruit, tidal pool, white flower, citrus rind and iodine hints. There is terrific intensity and delineation to the attractively textured and refined yet powerful flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the gorgeously long, balanced and Zen-like finale.

The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses comes from two parcels, one steep and east facing and the other southwest-facing on the flatter part. This is quite reserved at the moment, austere and backward, sultry even with light granitic/flint scents that emerge with time. The palate is more generous, you might argue more "Preuses" with dried apricot and orange zest, good weight on the finish but without the pizzazz of the nascent Vaudésir at the moment.
