A structured, lively and mineral wine with good
length on the palate. Both straightforward and fresh, with exemplary concentration.
Food pairings: Fish, seafood and shellfish, grilled or in a cream
sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream
"Pale, green-tinged color. Cool, subtle nose offers quinine, lime, fresh herbs and mint, plus a stony nuance. Silky on the attack, then suave and fresh in the middle, in a distinctly elegant style. Finishes brisk and refined, with a dusty quality and firm mineral spine extending the wine's fruit. Made from a blend of Butteaux, Montmains and Forets: the later-ripening Butteaux parcel always gives this wine its freshness, notes winemaker Didier Seguier."
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
"Comprising fruit from Les Forets, Bouts des Butteaux, and (true) Montmains, the relatively late-harvested Fevre 2006 Chablis Montmains (raised in a 60:40 ratio of tank to barrel) reveals similar richness, but new dimensions of minerality and complexity when compared with the corresponding Beauroy. Tangerine, peony, orange blossom, and herbal essences in the nose slightly suggest muscat. In the mouth, chalk, salt, and scallop-like flavors inflect ripe peach, tangerine, and lime, and without sacrificing any purity of fruit or a refreshing juiciness that carries into a long finish, this offers a tactile sense of chalkiness and subtly satisfying hints of oak. I would not hesitate to hold it for up to half a dozen years."
