William Fevre Les Clos Chablis Grand Cru 2006
from Burgundy, France
"Pale color. Musky, minerally aromas of lemon, mint, raw pineapple and quinine; very backward and very Chablis. Silky on entry, then dense in the middle, with terrific thrust and depth to its very dry but ripe flavors of citrus peel, minerals and spices. Wonderfully concentrated, solid, powerfully structured grand cru with outstanding minerally persistence. Potentially the best vintage yet for this bottling and one of the early highlights of the vintage."
-International Wine Cellar 94-97
"Fevre's 2006 Chablis Les Clos reflects its location in the chalky, stony upper reaches of that cru, with juicy lime; high-toned herbal essences including a hint of peppermint; fresh pit fruits; and a palpably chalky mineral dimension. Incredibly dense, yet shapely and not in the least heavy, this penetrates with uncanny grip, leaving your palate absolutely wrung-out. There is no doubt a wealth of nuance not even perceivable at this stage, but the stage is already set for an unforgettable show to reward anyone lucky and patient enough to follow this for 15 or more years. The 2005, incidentally, is equally dense and gripping, but more refined and forthcoming."
