Winemaker's Notes

A structured, lively and mineral wine with good length on the palate. Both straightforward and fresh, with exemplary concentration.

Critical Acclaim

"A beautifully elegant wine, wearing its fresh fruit and acidity on its sleeve at the moment, but promising depth of fruit skin and toast flavors as the structure develops. There's a fine tight, final mineral edge."
94 Points

"Comprising fruit from Les Forets, Bouts des Butteaux, and true Montmains, the Fevre 2007 Chablis Montmains (raised in a 60:40 ratio of tank to barrel) highlights peach, orange, kelp, and oyster shell. Its oiliness of texture reinforces the impression of richness, while a prominent salinity among its diverse mineral shadings lends lip-smacking invigoration to a sustained, bright, austerely dry finish. This offers an uncanny sense of liquefied stone and shells such as one scarcely ever encounters outside of the Auxerre. As Seguier explains it, the high-elevation and clay-rich Marnes soil of Butteaux – which makes up nearly half of this cuvee – promotes pronounced acidity, extract, and above all overt mineral characteristics. But these soils, especially at this altitude, are much slower to warm, so control of yields and later harvest are critical. This beauty should merit at least 6-8 years of attention. A non-estate Montmains, not sold in the U.S., shared some of this wine's mineral character but was broader and far less concentrated or focused. "
92 Points

"A discreetly spiced and highly floral nose offers up hints of seaweed and tidal pool and gives way to rich, pure, refined and punchy flavors that possess excellent volume and real finishing verve on the explosive and austere finish. A Zen-like wine of harmony, balance and grace. Highly recommended."
92 Points

"A generous version, displaying lemon cake, vanilla and melon notes, all backed by a vivid structure. Subtle, yet with a long, mouthwatering aftertaste. Drink now through 2015."

Learn About Chablis

Chablis got a bad rap when its name was plastered on large jug wines in the 1980's and 90's. Luckily, the wine in those jugs has nothing in common with the actual region. Wines produced in Chablis are some of the most unique in the world. Typical descriptors of a classic Chablis include a greenish tinge on the wine, minerality and crisp acidity balanced by a round mouthfeel....
