2019 Domaine William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru "Vaulorent" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1542725 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Cropped at a mere 34 hectoliters per hectare, the 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent is superb, unwinding in the glass with notes of citrus oil, crisp green orchard fruit, white peach, iodine and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with racy acids and a long, iodine-inflected finish, it's the most complete premier cru in the range. I left my tasting with Didier Séguier wondering if the 2019s might be the best vintage I've ever tasted at Domaine William Fèvre. At this address, the vintage's low yields have translated to wines of remarkable concentration, but Séguier has also achieved levels of cut and tension that are rare in contemporary Chablis. My only reservation (if one can call it that) is that these are serious, structured wines that are tightly wound and introverted after their recent bottling, a tendency no doubt amplified by their DIAM closures; therefore, many are surely destined to be drunk too young. But readers who purchase Fèvre's top 2019s and forget them for more than a decade are going to be richly rewarded, of that I'm confident. Aside from the quality of the 2019 vintage, the other big news here is that Fèvre is converting to organic farming, an ambitious and admirable project for this 78-hectare domaine.

Outer quote mark This could be from nowhere else but Chablis with its equally cool, elegant and airy aromas of white-fleshed fruit, floral, iodine and subtle passion fruit-scanted nose. The super-sleek, refined and energetic medium weight flavors possess both ample minerality and a caressing texture, all wrapped in a complex, very dry and impressively long finale. Lovely. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (10/2021)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Another linear and tight premier cru with sliced lemon, apple and some white pepper and chalk. It’s medium body. Clean and linear. Drink now. Inner quote mark (6/2021)

K&L Notes

92-94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Lots of marl here, good for the weight of fruit and the acidity, as it keeps the, soil cooler. The nose is quite restrained and refined, but the wine starts to sing on the palate, the promised acidity along with real weight of fruit, some ripe citrus along with a bit of grenadine." (10/2020)
