2008 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre"

SKU #1053812 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pale yellow-green color. Knockout high-pitched nose combines white flowers, crushed stone, citrus peel, gingery spices and a saline oyster shell nuance. Quite reserved today but impeccably pure, displaying outstanding breadth and richness without any impression of weight. Wonderfully vigorous wine that saturates the entire mouth with tactile minerality and excites the taste buds. A great example of this superb premier cru. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark *Outstanding* A discreet touch of wood sets off pure, elegant and airy floral and spice aromas that are in perfect keeping with the racy, energetic and classy medium weight plus flavors that possess excellent depth as well as superb length on the saline finish. This easily delivers grand cru quality and is highly recommended. Inner quote mark (1/2010)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From Fevre sites that had to recover from harsh hailing in 2007, their 2008 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre delivers salty, herbed chicken stock aromas and flavors such as only these Kimmeridgian soils seem capable of engendering in vinous form, mingled with tart yet luscious fresh lime and red currant. The higher, southeast-facing Pied d’Aloue contributes finesse, opines Didier Seguier, while the two-thirds share from southwesterly exposed Chapelot just below supplies depth of mineral character. The combination of citrus and berry generosity with striking salinity and carnal depth as well as a vibratory sense of finishing energy... (DS) Inner quote mark (10/2010)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A beautifully rounded wine, textured white fruits and fresh acidity well integrated into a rich structure. Hints of wood underline the yellow fruits and crisp, citrus, final acidity. (RV) Inner quote mark (11/2010)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark 2008 Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre The malic acidity of 2008 is overpowering at first, edging out this wine's honeyed, gingery sweetness of fruit. With air, it softens to a gentler, lime-like acidity, still tart, but with a mouthwatering balance. Age should bring this into harmony. Inner quote mark (10/2010)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Oak spice lends clove and nutmeg tones to this rich, almost viscous white. Underneath are notes of seashore, green apple and lemon. Attractive overall, but needs a little time. (BS) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 50% aged in oak. Back to the riper citrus of the village wine, only more intense. Really, tight, very clean and focused and more mineral and less ripe than I had expected from the nose. Real drive. (JH) Inner quote mark (1/2010)
