2015 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Les Preuses" (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $120+)

SKU #1292313 95 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2015 les Preuses from Domaine Fèvre is also a great wine in the making and it will be fun to compare its evolution over the coming decades to that of the Valmur. The wine is gorgeously complex on both the nose and palate out of the blocks, soaring from the glass in a blend of apple, par, beeswax, chalky minerality, a touch of tangerine and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, young and very mineral in profile, with a superb core, laser-like focus and a very, very long and racy finish. Classic juice. 2020-2050.

92-95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Les Preuses delivers energy and concentration, lemon, apple and white flowers, with a fresh, resonant finish. Inner quote mark (1/2017)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale, bright yellow. More feminine on the nose than the Valmur, offering aromas of citrus fruits, pear and white flowers plus a soupçon of oak spice. Very silky, seamless and refined but also shows terrific intensity and floral lift. Harmonious acidity leavens the density of this wine, giving it an almost weightless impression in the mouth. Perfectly integrated and balanced from the start. The impressively long, rising finish features piquant notes of citrus peel, minerals and flowers. I'd give this fine-grained beauty a good five years in the cellar before pulling the cork. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/2017)

93 points Burghound

Outer quote mark Once again there is a subtle but not invisible application of wood setting off the more elegant aromas of green fruit, almond, citrus, floral, spice and quinine. The super-intense, delineated and vibrant middle weight plus flavors possess both good richness but also the hallmark refinement of a fine Preuses, all wrapped in a more complex and sneaky long finish. Lovely. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Ripe pear nose with a light toastiness. Broad and supple, it is juicier than the other grand crus, and perhaps a bit softer too. There is underlying salinity and minerality, but it is very subdued at present. Rich, nutty and complex, it perhaps lacks a little energy and drive.

92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru les Preuses has a backward bouquet and only reluctantly reveals those traits of orange blossom and granite that it showed out of barrel. The palate is well balanced with a crisp line of acidity, gently building in the mouth with a vein of nutmeg and white pepper toward the harmonious and elegant finish, with a hint of licorice on the aftertaste. Enjoy this over the next 10 to 12 years. (NM) Inner quote mark (8/2017)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark A succulent vintage of this grand cru, this has a chalky savor tightening around its generous texture, lending a sense of elasticity and tension. It’s powerful in the middle, ending with a little warmth, which is the only factor that might shorten its drinking window. This should reach its peak in five or six years, and last from there. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

K&L Notes

Bill Nanson Burgundy Report: "2 parcels, one of 1 ha the other of 1.2 ha. Bottled. A tighter wine more top to bottom aroma, suggesting a modest floral aspect. Volume, power, yet a mouth-watering clarity that shies from aggression, all is beautifully encapsulated here. Great complex, joyous flavour in the mid-palate, slowly mouth-watering into the finish. Great stuff – seemingly understated vs some here but great all the same."
