2019, Domaine William Fevre, CHABLIS 1er Cru "Vaillons"

$84
Mostly from central Vaillons itself, the 2019 starts quietly, but then shows real weight behind, before the typical lemon freshness of the finish. The fruit through the middle is richer than Vaillons used to be, now with, some peachier notes. The bouquet maintains a touch of the smokiness, but with ripe fruit intruding. Long and complex.
**** 90-93 Jasper Morris MW

A slightly riper and quite dense nose features notes of white pepper, quinine, mineral reduction and a combination of orchard fruit compote scents. There is excellent volume to the sappy and powerful flavours that, somewhat surprisingly, flirt with rusticity on the noticeably warm bitter lemon-inflected finish.
89-92 Allen Meadows, Burghound
