William Fevre Chablis Champs Royaux France-Burgundy-Chablis 2009
Combining great fruitiness with a pleasant freshness, and that special mineral character, Chablis is an appellation of reference all over the world. The vineyards, with the Kimmeridgian subsoil, are ideally exposed to sun and climate to give birth to great wine, thanks to the attention of the Domaine’s team.

Apple, melon and mineral notes mingle in this vibrant, balanced white, which lingers with a Granny Smith flavor and a mouthwatering impression. Drink now through 2012.
Round, with peach, yellow plum and a hint of mineral. A firm structure keeps this focused, with a hint of lemon zest on the finish. Drink now through 2010.
A tightly wound, bracing white, featuring lemon and Granny Smith apple flavors, which lead to a chalky feel on the finish. Drink now through 2014.
Bottled three weeks before I tasted it in late June, Fevre’s 2012 Chablis Champ Royaux — based, as usual, on purchased fruit — offers a juicy amalgam of honeydew and lime on a glossy palate, leading to a relatively simple but refreshing, invigorating and persistent finish. Plan to enjoy it through 2014.
