William Fevre Chablis les Preuses 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Burghound review: This would be almost impossible to miss the origins as the marine influence on<br/>the pungently mineral, airy and superbly elegant nose is extremely strong with<br/>Chablis character to burn. The seductive middle weight flavours brim with dry<br/>extract, which does a perfect job of buffering the structural elements on the<br/>mouth coating and sappy finish that seems to go on and on. About the only<br/>distinction between this and the other grands crus is that the finish is<br/>perhaps not quite as precise as that of the Valmur but otherwise, this is very<br/>Preuses and very classy juice. <br/>(Allen Meadows, Burghound.com - Oct 09)

Viña William Fèvre:
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

Distinctly floral, with a Viognier-like note weaving through the pure apple and pear fruit, lingering nicely on the gentle finish. Drink now.

A tame nose of cream and toast leads to a fairly weighty palate of butter and apples that’s punctuated by attractive guava notes. The nutty finish is just this side of medium. Drink up.

Light yellow. Aromas of pineapple, nectarine and white peach, lifted by a whiff of apple skin. Dry and firm-edged, with a bitter quality adding interest to the pit and orchard fruit flavors. Racy acidity carries the fruit on the firm, focused finish. This grown-up rendition of chardonnay would work well by itself.

The apple, peach and mineral flavors play off the vibrant structure, while the texture remains smooth and generous. Has good regional character. 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.

Pale, green-tinged color. Musky aromas of lime oil, ginger and quinine. Juicy and tight; less open to inspection today than the Champs Royaux. More material here but quite closed, hinting only at lime and minerals. A very serious village wine with sneaky back-end persistence.

A Riesling-reminiscent amalgam of fresh lime, white peach, chalk and salt marks the nose and palate of Fevre's 2008 Chablis Bougros, which in a role reversal from vintage norms is firmer and adamantly more mineral than its 2007 counterpart. Its tacti... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2008 Fevre, Domaine William Chablis Bougros Grand Cru 750ml
