Flinty, citrus fruits, with aftertaste of lemon and maybe orange peel oils.

A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2006 Fevre, Domaine William Chablis Fourchaume Premier Cru 750ml
Fevre owns or controls nearly one quarter of the acreage in Preuses. Their 2006 Chablis Preuses marries fruit from a southeast-facing parcel just above the Cote de Bouguerots and conducive to cool" fruit and overt minerality, with a southwest-facing parcel inherently inclined toward richness that was harvested at hugely high ripeness even before this year's ban de vendange. From its aroma through its impressively dense and expansive palate display, through its lingering finish, this sensually extravagant expression of Preuses (in a manner distinctly reminiscent of Vincent Dauvissat's) is totally suffused with the savory salinity and sweetness of shrimp and lobster shell reduction. White peach and lime occupy a discreet position, iris and lily a more prominent one, wafting alluringly throughout. This silken-textured beauty should be worth holding for a dozen or more years." RP
The Fevre 2006 Chablis Vaillons possesses bright fresh lime and ripe nectarine fruit, as well as deep suggestions of chicken and fish stock. There is a certain firmness of texture, and an overt impression of chalkiness along with the aforementioned carnal and piscine elements inform the finish. This as yet rather restrained but already fascinatingly delicious wine should blossom in bottle, and can be counted on to demonstrate over the next 4-6 years the sorts of peculiar Chablis virtues that can make one scratch one's head in wonder that it comes from grapes.
