2008 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Vaudésir"

SKU #1056382 93-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pale, green-tinged yellow. Pungent, enticing aromas of pink grapefruit, lime and minerals. Suave and brisk on entry, then wonderfully intense and vibrant in the middle, with impressive volume and an impression of sucrosite leavened by penetrating grapefruity acidity. A wonderfully energetic wine that finishes with an almost painful whiplash of flavor and outstanding length. The acidity here is in the 4.6 range, with a very low pH around 3.0. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/2009)

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Extremely discreet notes of wood set off the ripest nose among these grands crus in 2008 with wonderfully fresh orchard fruit and pure citrus aromas leading to impressively precise big-bodied and powerful flavors brimming with dry extract and more minerality than usual on the refined, intense and hugely long finish that is quite dry. A wine of class and grace but with no lack of muscle. Inner quote mark (10/2010)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The counterpoint of juicy, ripe, succulent white peach and pink grapefruit with piquantly cyanic peach kernel and pungent citrus zest characterize the Fevre 2008 Chablis Vaudesir, a bottling that makes up in sheer richness and roaring intensity for what little it might sacrifices in clarity or mineral intrigue vis-a-vis the other best wines of this collection. A vintage-typical sense of energy certainly doesn’t flag in the finish, which clings with borderline bitter intensity. Here is another likely candidate for most of a decade’s delight. (DS) Inner quote mark (10/2010)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There's fine intensity to the fresh lemon, oyster shell, apple and stone aromas and flavors as this white rolls across the palate. Beautifully balanced and expressive, with a refreshing finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (8/2010)
