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)

Founded in 1959, William Fèvre owns the largest array of Grands Crus Vineyards (15.2 hectares) and benefits from ideal conditions  to produce excellent Chablis. A category leader in the US, William Fèvre Domaine wines are farmed organically and biodynamically. Imported in the U.S. by Maisons and Domaines Henriot Americas along with sister Houses Champagne Henriot, Bouchard Pere and Fils (Burgundy) Chateau de Poncie (Fleurie) and Beaux Freres (Oregon). 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

Pale yellow-green color. Crushed stone, lime oil and ethereal white flowers on the nose. Wonderfully elegant wine combining serious richness and density with terrific grip. The white peach, spearmint and spice flavors are complicated by a soil-driven saline minerality. Finishes with superb grip and dusty length. This is two-thirds Chapelots and one-third Pied d'Aloue, the former providing fat and the latter minerality, according to winemaker Seguier. Grand cru suavity and complexity here.

An enticing mix of apple and green plum notes, with a hint of seashore and spice, mingle with the bright structure in this white. Theres a slight grain to the texture, and this ends on the tart side, yet theres plenty of substance midpalate. Needs ... Wine Spectator.
