Fevre Chablis Grand Cru les Preuses 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is a big step up in refinement, particularly aromatically with an abundance of oyster shell and tidal pool nuances to the white flower, citrus and Chablis-style green fruit. The rich, powerful and mouth coating flavors possess real drive but also beautiful detail on the intensely mineral-driven finish that possesses outstanding length." - Burghound.com

The history of wine-making in Chablis goes back to 865 AD with the development of vineyards by the monks of Saint-Martin-de-Tours on slopes facing the Serein River that cuts through that village.

The history of wine-making in Chablis goes back to 865 AD with the development of vineyards by the monks of Saint-Martin-de-Tours on slopes facing the Serein River that cuts through that village. At that time and for the centuries that followed, the Chablis wine trade grew substantially thanks to the waterways that made it possible to supply Paris from Auxerre. With the French Revolution, estates changed hands but remained successful, and the total vineyard surface area reached 38,000 hectares. The end of the 19th century saw the coming of phylloxera in 1887, which wreaked havoc and reduced the vineyards to almost nothing. It was only at the beginning of the 1960s, when the Chablis vineyard surface area was less than 1,000 hectares, that Chablis wine production took off again with the growth of mechanization and setting up of anti-frost systems (another plague for the vines of the region). The current productive vineyard surface area is 4,580 hectares. Read less

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

We drank this wine while vacationing in California recently. We each enjoy different types of white wines - from wooded chardonnay to fruity pinot grigio, our tastes vary. Yet, this Chablis won over the four of us. It has enough structure without overwhelming those who prefer a lighter wine. A light bittersweet entry to a long and mellowed finish this wine is excellent with lighter seafood and poultry. It's also one to drink on a warm summer's day!

A more complex if not fresher nose features notes of lemon zest, oyster shell and white flower that precede solidly well-concentrated, textured and delicious flavors that possess good balance on the moderately persistent finish.

There is a little more attack on the Cote Bougerots than the regular Bougros Grand Cru, whilst the palate has impressive weight and balance. Hints of fresh lime, nectarine and hazelnut, with a crisp insistent finish with good persistency. Excellent. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Pale, green-tinged color. Rather withdrawn nose hints at spearmint, spices, menthol and crushed stone lifted by a whiff of lime oil.
