William Fevre Montmains Cru Chablis 2010
Chardonnay from Chablis, France
Wine Style Guide
Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.
Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.
Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.
This 100% Chardonnay is a structured, lively and mineral wine with good length on the palate. It is both straightforward and fresh, with exemplary concentration.
"Fevre's domaine bottling of the 2010 Chablis Montmains is wonderfully subtle, perfumed and gracious. It boasts serious finesse in its nuanced, crystalline fruit. Here, the richness and weight of the vintage is not as obvious, at least today. That may come in time, but we will have to see. An intense, saline finish makes it hard to move on in this tasting. The Montmains is one of the jewels in this lineup of 2010s from Fevre."
The Wine Advocate
"Pale color. High-pitched, nuanced nose combines pineapple, lime, quinine, ginger, white pepper and flowers. Elegant, fine-grained and quite suave, with a distinctly airy texture. Finishes rich, ripe and persistent. A serious wine, but is it any longer than the Montmains from purchased grapes?
International Wine Cellar
"Classical in its Chardonnay architecture, this wine has both depth and height. It's leesy and tight in aroma, a little soft around the edges of its Key lime flavor, and refined in the finish. This should reach a good moment for enjoyment around five or six years from the vintage."

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....
