Chablis Always Delivers

The poster child for terroir makes a different kind of Chardonnay statement

2009 William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Valmur $99

This is chalky and dusty on the nose, with rich lime oil fruit over pollen floral notes and a touch of wood spice. This enters the mouth with focus and and good acid lift, growing on the palate to deliver very rich apple fruit that has a little red fruit aspect to it. There's nice tension in the mouth, though this does come off as a bit round in the mouth, and while it finishes with lots of dusty clay and limestone notes, there’s also hint of whipped cream here that becomes a bit apparent on the palate as well. A bit of oak influence that might bother some. 91 points
