William Fevre Chablis Montee de Tonnerre Domaine Premier Cru 2015

External Review:

Bright green-tinged yellow. Aromas of gunflint menthol chalk white pepper and spices with a hint of yellow grapefruit. Rich sappy and impressively dense with terrific cut to the tightly coiled flavors of pineapple grapefruit and stone. This taut wine tastes like a baby Clos. The very long echoing finish displays pungent minerality and outstanding energy. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

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

The 2012 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre is all about balance. Smoke ash graphite yellow peach inform a tense powerful Chablis. The wine s dry extract and broad shoulders are almost red wine-like. The 2012 is going to need some time to settle down. Today it is pretty special though even if the style remains surprisingly muscular and brooding. The lieux-dits are 2/3rds Chapelots and 1/3rd Pied d Aloup. Antonio Galloni.

This offers up buckets of Chablis character with its pure aromas of mineral reduction citrus rind green fruit and pretty floral scents. There is excellent intensity and real punch to the splendidly detailed medium weight plus flavors that deliver seriously impressive depth on the explosive and bone dry finish. This is almost painfully intense yet there is virtually no austerity and overall this is quite simply terrific. 2020+ Burghound.
