William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru les Preuses 2011
"The 2011 Chablis Les Preuses covers every corner of the palate with beautifully delineated, vibrant fruit. Despite its obvious richness, the 2011 isn’t overt, but rather a wine that impresses for its overall balance and harmony. The Preuses was racked the week prior to my visit. I won’t be surprised if it comes in at the high end of my scoring range once it is bottled." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This feminine and minerally wine has an impressive potential to keep well though it’s enticing today. Harmony and persistence give this wine clear focus. It is impressively floral, lemony and chalky with notes of sea salt. Those that unilaterally dismiss larger operations are missing out on some most impressive wines chez Fèvre. 95 pts
External Reviews for William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru les Preuses
Tightly wound and reticent the Chablis Les Preuses is one of the least expressive wines in the range. Pear white peach and floral nuances emerge over time but only with great reluctance. Today the Preuses remains deeply marked by its intense minerality. Readers should plan on giving the Preuses at least a few years in bottle. Today the 2011 is vibrant and focused but not ready to show all of its cards. Antonio Galloni.
The Fevre 2011 Chablis Preuses deftly combines textural creaminess with lift clarity and refreshment and offers luscious white peach and fresh scallop suffused with maritime minerality and tinged with kelp and peach kernel. At once soothing and stimulating not to mention mouthwatering the finish here plumbs oceanic depths but brings you back to the surface thirsting for another sip (if not gulp). You should be able to derive memorable pleasure from this through 2018 but I would still favor
Pale yellow-green. Lovely pristine high-pitched nose combines lemon lime white flowers anise and white pepper. Juicy and nicely ripe with terrific sappy intensity and grip to the tactile flavors of lime grapefruit pith and flowers. The long building finish displays terrific cut and tension. The 2012 version is larger-scaled and richer but this is every bit as penetrating. At 12.7% alcohol it s nicely ripe but also very easy to drink. 93+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
