Fevre Chablis 2021 - A "Don't Miss" Great Vintage


Domaine William Fevre

I have tasted a few older Fevres lately, with amazing success! In fact, I've been blown away by the almost indestructible ageability. The 2010 Montee de Tonnerre, served blind, I picked as a vigorous and youthful 2014, the 2011 Grand Cru Preuses was almost limpid with a super youthful core of fruit running firm long and focused like a laser beam. With the super quality and firmness, youthfulness and density of the 2021's these wines are a montee ;-).
Cheers, Randall

"Overall, I would describe the growing season as similar to 2001 though the style of the 2021s doesn't really remind me of any recent vintages. The wines are wonderfully pure with plenty of citrus and white fleshed fruit aromas allied with a palate impression that offers good precision, density and aging potential." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

These wines are expected to arrive next week!

2021 Dom. William Fevre Chablis
RRP: $75 | Offer: $62

"William Fevre own 46ha of AP Chablis but there was lots of frost damage in 2021 - the yield was just 18hl/ha! Lovely floral notes here, very precise and focussed. This is already appealing although the acidity is certainly evident. Lingering spice notes on the finish. From a tank sample, with bottling due in November. Drink from next year and for many years." 92pts - Andy Howard MW, Decanter

2021 Dom. William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons
RRP: $139 | Offer: $115

"Here too there is a vague suggestion of the exotic on the slightly riper aromas of pear compote, ocean spray, iodine and wet stone. The rich, vibrant and palate coating flavors are also supported by bright acidity that carries over to the wonderfully long, youthfully austere and firm finale. This beauty should age effortlessly." 91-93pts, Sweet Spot, Outstanding! - Allen Meadows, Burghound

2021 Dom. William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent
RRP: $189 | Offer: $159

"Fevre’s Vaulorent is just a little more precise on the nose. Seguier says it is always elegant, always fresh. Fevre’s take on this renowned premier cru has an understated nose yet you can feel the power within. Lovely ripeness of fruit, but all in a very compact package at the moment. Although this is disarmingly approachable now, this will be a wine to cellar carefully, allowing all the perfectly formed components to blossom." 95pts! - Andy Howard MW, Decanter

2021 Dom. William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre
RRP: $195 | Offer: $165

"A discreet dollop of wood sets off the equally cool and perhaps even slightly more elegant aromas of acacia, citrus, seashore and oyster shell. The sleek and highly sophisticated medium-bodied flavors possess a really lovely texture while delivering superb length on the bitter lemon and mineral-suffused finish. This beautifully balanced effort is crystalline in its purity and a wine that should repay a decade plus of keeping." 91-94pts, Outstanding! - Allen Meadows, Burghound 

2021 Dom. William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses
RRP: $295 | Offer: $249

"A deft application of wood frames the beautifully elegant nose of essence of pear, green apple, acacia blossom, lemon rind and a plethora of classic Chablis scents. The dense and unusually powerful large-scaled flavors don’t have the muscle of the Valmur but they’re finer, all wrapped in a massively persistent and even more complex finale. As good as the Valmur is, and it’s wonderful, there is just a bit more here." 93-96pts, Don’t Miss! - Allen Meadows, Burghound

2021 Dom. William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Bougros 'Cote Bouguerots'
RRP: $329 | Offer: $275

"A cool and highly restrained nose reluctantly offers up its array of citrus, tidal pool, quinine and oyster shell. The exceptionally rich, even opulent, medium-weight plus flavors also brim with sappy dry extract on the mineral-driven, powerful and remarkably long finish. This is perhaps slightly less elegant than it typically is, but it is most impressive all the same." 93-95pts, Don’t Miss! - Allen Meadows, Burghound

2021 Dom. William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos
RRP: $375 | Offer: $309

This too could be from nowhere else other than Chablis with its combination of strong mineral reduction, cool citrus, shellfish and iodine. The dense, opulent and powerful large-bodied flavors brim with dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the lemony and massively long finish. Not surprisingly for a classic Les Clos, this super effort is very much built-to-age and a wine that I would advise not touching for at least 6 to 8 years first. 93-96pts, Don’t Miss! - Allen Meadows, Burghound
