Winemaker's Notes

The largest and most famous of the Grands Crus, because it is the historical cradle of Chablis vineyards. Les Clos has a remarkably complex bouquet, blending fruity, floral and spicy notes with a substantial mineral touch. Structured palate, opening up with age to give powerful, generous wines.

Blend: 100% Chardonnay

Critical Acclaim

"This was quite closed and somewhat difficult to read but aggressive swirling grudgingly liberated ripe aromas of sea breeze, pear, lemon rind, oyster shell and mineral reduction plus an abundance of typical floral scents. The large-scaled flavors are overtly powerful and impressively concentrated as there is plenty of palate staining dry extract that also buffers the very firm acidity that supports and shapes the gorgeously precise finish. This explosively long effort possesses exquisite balance and the tightly wound flavors are going to need at least a decade to completely bloom. A knock out.
Barrel Sample: 93-96 Points"

"Fevre's 2011 Chablis Les Clos is seriously intense. The Clos is another wine that saturates the palate with endless layers of aromas and flavors in a style that is all about persistence and length. The 2011 will require time, perhaps quite a bit of it, but it is striking for its purity and delineation. This is a very strong showing from Fevre and winemaker Didier Seguir.
Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points"
95 Points

"Bright yellow-green. Calcaire-driven aromas of citrus peel, mint and powdered stone, plus a whiff of coconut. Densely packed and seamless but youthfully closed; in a powerful, distinctly dry style, showing tightly coiled energy. Expands dramatically in the mouth and on the very long aftertate, coating the palate with flavors of citrus fruit, mint, dusty stone and almost metallic minerality. A real vin de garde for the vintage. Seguier noted that he used zero new oak for the 2011s; William Fevre gets its used barrels from Bouchard, which is under the same ownership.

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....
