The Fèvre family have been prominent in Chablis for over 250 years. In 1998 Joseph Henriot picked up the torch and installed an inspired winemaker, in the form of Didier Seguier. Since then, the wines from Domaine William Fèvre have become the benchmark for classic Chablis.
Located between Valmur and Blanchots, Les Clos is well exposed to the sun ensuring optimum levels of sugars and phenols in the grapes while retaining the fresh, racy acidity that Chablis wines are famous for. It arguably produces the best example of balanced Chablis.
An exceptionally fresh and intensely floral nose also offers up notes of lime, lemon, stone and iodine that are trimmed in a discreet touch of wood. There is massive richness to the concentrated and big-bodied flavors that are breathtakingly powerful and intense, all wrapped in a palate drenching and extraordinarily long finish. As impressive as all of these characteristics are, it's the sheer depth of underlying material that is almost hard to believe. Like the Preuses and the Valmur, this is a 'wow' wine that should develop for at least a decade though because of all of the dry extract, it will be approachable much sooner. In a word, brilliant.- 94 pts Allen Meadows, Burghound.com
