Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"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."
92 Points

"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?
Range: 90-92"
92 Points

"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."

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....
