William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 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 a parcel of vines that is close to Vaudésir and extends all the way from Grenouilles to the tree line at the top of the hill; in 2012 yields were only 18 hl/ha. An expressive and elegant nose features notes of salt water, citrus and cool yet ripe green fruit. There is terrific power and concentration to the dense and palate drenching flavors that brim with both minerality and vibrancy before concluding in a borderline painfully intense and explosive finish that is bone dry though not particularly austere. This is a knockout. Don't Miss! Rating: (93-95)/2022+ Allen Meadows; Burghound
