2007 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaume-Vaulorent"

SKU #1178389 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Chablis Fourchaume Vignoble de Vaulorent – from their top parcel in Vaulorent – delivers in spades the combination of fusil, chalk dust, and smoky notes that many locals relate to the smell of Kimmeridgian rock itself when broken apart. Whatever its origins, this family of what, by sheer default, can hardly be called anything but “mineral” notes combines harmoniously with luscious, bright grapefruit and lemon as well as high-toned herbal essences for a palate display uncanny in its combination of textural richness and palpable underlying extract with lift and elegance. A more savory sort of mineral character with hidden sweetness akin to raw shrimp or scallop wells up as this takes on air, and the wine’s finish positively reverberates in its oscillation of mineral and citrus, like the resonance of stone church walls after a choir has gone silent. This is bound to offer at least a decade of delicious excuses for metaphor, as well as versatility at table. (DS) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark The barest hint of wood sets off a similar yet even more complex nose that is followed by deep, powerful and very serious broad-shouldered flavors brimming with dry extract and culminating in a dry and relatively austere finish offering enormous length. The intensity here is mind blowing and it's rare to find 1ers with this kind of heft and punch. Impressive and this should age well. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (10/2009)

93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2007 Vauleront is stunning, and clearly the quality equivalent of grand cru in this great Chablis vintage. The bouquet is deep and pure, as it offers up a complex and still quite primary mélange of green apples, tangerine, lime blossoms, and another amazingly complex base of soil tones mostly redolent of flint and wet stones. On the palate the wine is fullish, deep and racy, with a rock solid core of fruit, laser-like focus and stunning length and grip on the perfectly balanced, but quite closed finish. I would definitely tuck this away in the cellar for at least five or six years, as it should be absolutely brilliant once it has fully blossomed.

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pale yellow-green. Very fresh aromas of lime, powdered stone, anise and tarragon. Rich, sweet and bracing, combining excellent density and fine-grained texture with terrific cut. Most impressive today on the rising finish, which really grips and titillates the palate. Offers lovely lingering perfume. Fevre's regular Fourchaume actually comes from their 3.6-hectare plot of Vaulorent as well, but the most structured, minerally lots are reserved for this special Vaulorent bottling, with the final selection made just before the bottling.

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Green plum, apple and lemon notes are enhanced by a vanilla accent. Firm and tight, with a crisp, mouthwatering finish. Elegant and structured. Best from 2012 through 2020. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2009)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark More pungent than the straight Fourchaume, and better depth of flavour, with a fine mineral streak through the citrus. Slight smoky reductive note. Tangy finish. Just a bit lacking on the mid palate again. 16/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (1/2009)
