Winemaker's Notes

Floral notes on the nose, with fruit driven hints enhanced by intense mineral notes and lightly smoky touches. Very rounded on the palate, but also full-bodied yet elegant.

Critical Acclaim

"This is arguably the most elegant wine in the range with its ultra-pure aromas of quinine, oyster shell, mineral reduction and floral elements. There is a caressing, even seductive mouth feel to the beautifully well-delineated and concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess an almost delicate quality before culminating in an almost startlingly explosive finish that just goes on and on. This bone dry effort is an exercise in harmony and grace, or otherwise expressed, a classic Preuses. Point Range: 93-96"
96 Points

"The 2012 Chablis Les Preuses is all about subtlety. Nothing in particular stands out, just the wine's exceptional overall balance. Dried orchard fruit, flowers, mint and sage are some of the many notes that blossom, but it is the wine's textural feel that elevates the Preuses. The chiseled, pulsating finish is a thing of beauty."
95 Points

"Tasted assembled a good half year before bottling, the Fevre 2012 Chablis Les Preuses beautifully exhibits the intrigue and allure inherent in this great site. Smoky black tea, mint, wild forest fungus, kelp and musk rise from the glass, to be joined on a silken yet bright palate by the saline-sweet, saliva-inducing savor of fresh scallop and the succulence of lime-laced white peach. This lingering beauty ought to prove memorably intriguing and delightful through at least 2022. As Seguier sees it, the parcel of Fevre’s Preuses located on the border with the Cote de Bouguerots serves for mineral character, while a strip that extends up into the heart of Preuses conveys its exotic animal (or shellfish) and fungal aspects.

Range; 93-94 Points"
94 Points

"Pale, green-tinged yellow. Very pure but subdued aromas of lime, white pepper and caraway seed. Rich and intense but very dry and backward, with citrus and floral flavors currently overshadowed by a strong gingery quality. Less expressive today than the Cote Bouguerots but very concentrated, classic and long. This will need a good six or seven years of cellaring. 93(+?) point"

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....
