"A very taut wine. Yes it has richness and weight with ripe fruits, but the main character is dominated by a tense line of acidity, of very crisp fruit and of an intense steely texture. For aging 4-5 years. "
"The Fevre 2008 Chablis Montmains – originating, as usual, in Les Forets, Butteaux, and (true) Montmains – reveals a sleek, juicy, invigorating personality, its ripe grapefruit laced with salt, iodine, and fusil notes of crushed stone which carry into a truly penetrating finish. This lean, long-lined cru cuvee should be worth following for 4-6 years if not longer.
The Wine Advocate
"Pale yellow-green. Musky nose suggests fresh herbs and smoky spices; there's something gruner veltliner-like about this. Then rich, spicy and dry on the palate but not yet filled in. The spicy, peppery finish is long and dry, but currently displays a youthfully bitter quality. Range: 89-91"
International Wine Cellar
"William Fevre makes a Montmains from its own domaine, as well as this bottling, which includes purchased fruit. This wine's acidity stretches its balance to the limit, matched, somewhat unusually, by rich flavors-salty saltwater taffy flavors, spicy green pear, orange and ginger. It's almost resinous with chalk, the stoniness and acidity merging in wild herbal spice. For the cellar."
