William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir 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.
Here the wood is so subtle as to be all but invisible as it easily allows the riper and dense mix of both white and yellow orchard fruit, spice and sea breeze scents. The ripeness exhibited by the nose continues onto the juicy, even succulent broad-shouldered flavors that deliver stunningly good complexity on the impressively lingering finale. This should age effortlessly and I would expect the minerality to develop even more with age. Rating: 92-95 Points; Issue #60; Tasted: Oct 2015; Drink: 2021+; Don't Miss!; Allen Meadows - Burghound
The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir has a complex bouquet, touches of hazelnut and grilled almond infusing the citrus fruit, a little richer than the Bougros at the moment. The palate is crisp and fresh with a fine line of acidity, although it does not quite possess the tension, the electricity of the finest examples that I have tasted from the vintage. Perhaps saving something for after bottling? Let's see. Rating: 89-91 Points; Drink: 2016-2018; Tasted: Aug 2015; Neal Martin - eRobertParker.com #220
