Peter Maude Fine Wines

2020, Domaine William Fevre, CHABLIS 1er Cru "Vaulorent"

$125

Arriving August 2022.

Attractive pale lemon, similar beautiful pale lemon colour with a light lime tint. The nose is startlingly fine, with a haunting elegance. Why in these hotter years are the Vaulorent wines seemingly even finer? The terroir dominates the vintage. A citrus zest weaving in and out of white fruit. Harmony and balance. Hardly able to assimilate all the intensity. What a wealth of dry extract! ***** (5 stars) 93-96 Jasper Morris MW.

The restrained and layered nose makes clear that this could be from nowhere else but Chablis with its aromas of algae, iodine, oyster shell and spiced pear. The texture of the medium weight flavours is also sleek and intense with slightly better density to the youthfully austere bitter lemon suffused finish. Lovely. Sweet Spot Outstanding. 92-94 Burghound.
