2011 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru "Vaulorent"
Allen Meadows - Burghound
This is quite aromatically similar to the Fourchaume though here there is also a discreet hint of sulfur and the wood is all but invisible. There is fine concentration to the powerful, suave and intensely stony flavors that possess superb finishing complexity on the balanced, clean, very dry and energetic finish. As is often the case, this delivers grand cru quality.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Salted, herbed chicken stock laced with fresh lemon in the nose of Fevre’s 2011 Chablis Vaulorent could scarcely have come from anywhere save this region of the wine world, and those aforementioned elements go on to serve for saliva-stimulating savor on a polished and buoyant palate. Hints of raw scallop add further mouthwatering allure to a lingering, soothing finish. This should prove memorably versatile through at least 2018, but do not hesitate to enjoy some now!
Each year, Seguier and his team make a selection of top lots based on tasting. Cooler, reserved on the nose, this is racy, dense and persistent on the palate, featuring apple, lemon and spice, all on a stony, mineral intensity, very long and fresh.

Pale silver-green color. High-pitched aromas of lime, mint and crushed stone. Distinctly mineral and soil-driven; youthfully tight but dense too, showing excellent stony cut. Really mounts and lingers on the back end. Hardly your typical 2011, this one boasts near-grand cru intensity. 91(+?)
