William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru 'Les Clos' 2016
Note: from 4 separate parcels totalling 4.11 ha, 3 of which are all at the top of the slope. An even more complex nose displays excellent Chablis typicity with its combination of citrus, white orchard fruit, sea breeze, mineral reduction and soft oyster shell nuances. The broad-shouldered flavors are rich and concentrated to the point of opulence while managing to retain reasonably good precision on the citrus and solidly dry finale that really fans out as it sits on the palate. This is one of the few 2016s that may need most of a decade to arrive at its peak. In a word, impressive. 92-95 points. Drink: 2024+. Don't miss!
