2017 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru "Mont de Milieu"

SKU #1449017 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru is another wine endowed with superb textural richness and pure volume. Almond, chamomile, white flowers and earthy notes add shades of nuance to this large-scaled, ripe, dense Chablis. I would prefer to give the 2017 at least a few years in bottle, as its intensity and overall richness are off the charts. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2017 Mont de Milieu from Domaine William Fèvre was the first premier cru in the tasting that had not just been filtered, so it served as a beautiful signpost for how the previous four wines will show once they have a chance to recover a bit, and this wine was showing beautifully! The bouquet delivers a lovely blend of pear, lemon, chalky soil tones and plenty of spring flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows a beautiful synthesis of perfectly ripe fruit and racy minerality. The finish is focused, bright and bouncy, with excellent nascent complexity and a nice sense of reserve that augurs very, very well for its evolution in bottle. (Drink between 2020-2045) 92+ Inner quote mark (11/2018)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A discreet application of wood sets off mildly exotic aromas that are composed of mineral reduction, apricot, white peach and ample Chablis typicity. The very rich, impressively concentrated and much bigger flavors brim with dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the powerful and muscular finish that flirts with rusticity but doesn't quite cross the line. This too is good stuff. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of grilled peaches and lemon butter lead to a succulent, juicy palate that has plenty of vibrant, fleshy grilled-peach flavor and some gently mealy notes to close. Drink now. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu was very reserved when I tasted it, unfurling with reticent aromas of green apple and citrus, followed by a medium-bodied, tense and tight-knit palate with tangy acids and a saline finish. My intuition is that it has good potential, though it's hard to read. Yields were low in Fèvre's Mont de Milieu holdings, coming in at 33 hectoliters per hectare. (WK) 89-91+ Inner quote mark (8/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Creamy, almost buttery nose. Nutty elements too. Less fruit intensity than their Montée de Tonnerre, which allows more the Chablis terroir to express itself – stone, flint and salinity. 17/20 points. (RH) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

93-94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Clear bright colour, pale but with light green tints, a very classy nose with both white and yellow fruits, Just 22 hl/ha made from half a hectare so it will be scarce. There is an innate sense of balance. Very concentrated, indeed yet with a delicious touch of youthful bitterness to keep the back of the palate fresh. Old vines degenerated by court-nouée virus mean low yields." (01/2019)
