Floral nose, with fruity aromas enhanced by intense mineral notes and developing lightly smoky touches. Very round on the palate, both full-bodied and refined.
"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"
"Vibrant and totally alive in the glass, the 2012 Chablis Les Preuses beautifully expresses the qualities of the vintage and the two parcels Fevre owns in this hallowed site. The 2012 impresses for its remarkable balance of intense fruit, mineral cut and floral overtones, all of which meld together to form an impeccable, gracious wine of pure breed. Today, the Preuses is understandably quite tightly wound, but that just bodes well for the future.
Range: 94-96 Points"
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Pale, green-tinged yellow. Pure, vibrant aromas of citrus pith, spring flowers and peppery spices. Quite silky and elegant on the palate; in a more feminine style than the Valmur or Bougros but bright and highly concentrated, with impeccably integrated acidity. This really blossoms on the tactile, very long finish, which dusts the palate with minerals, lemon and pepper.
Range: 93-95 Points"
International Wine Cellar
"asted 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"

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....
