Fevre William Chablis Vaudesir 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

The Fevre family has been an integral part of the Chablis landscape for upwards of 250 years. Since the beginning, though, they have been adamant about protecting and promoting the typicity of Chablis, whose whites draw a unique and well-defined line-in-the-sand when it comes to mineral-laden and driven French Chardonnay. Following strict guidelines in the vineyard and cellar, the production at this domaine is one that respects the integrity of the terroir and grape. The grand crus from this estate represent the pinnacle of purity and intensity that world-class Chardonnay from France can attain and are characterized by superb delineations of acidity, mineral, crystalline fruit and delicate floral. Very pale, green-tinged color. Reticent, somewhat reduced, soil-driven aromas of crushed stone, petrol and lime blossom. Extremely primary today, but already hinting at great incipient complexity, with notes of talc, citrus skin, white flowers and white pepper. Dense and fat with sheer extract; a real mouthful of liquid minerals. Superconcentrated, seamless and penetrating. The Valmur is easier to taste today, but this should be an extraordinary wine with six or seven years of additional aging. It's entirely possible that most of the top 2002 crus here will close down in bottle over the next year or two.
