Nose is green Apple, citrus, almost lime, rock, has a vegetal quality that Chablis can have sometimes when it’s really minerally strong. Typical salinity there. Rounder than the 2014 and much more approachable. Less acid but acid still moderate. My favorite 1er Cru vineyard in Chablis.

So closed, even after decanting. Perhaps in a shut-down phase? Although these are usually approachable young. I couldn’t get anywhere with this one. Will check back in a year.

Way, way tight and even after sloshing around a decanter for 3 hours it never opened the way it should. Too young to pop right now. The stuff is there, but lurking behind the couch, in the corner, with the lights off, wearing all black, and not moving...

Nose of a flinty lemon, palate has a wee bit of tropical fruit peeking out, oak is blowing off still. I'll update my notes as the wine opens.

Two hours in the wine is revealing.

Nose has waxy citrus skin, struck flint inside a new oak barrel that's also filled with grapefruits.

Palate has papaya, clean crushed minerals, bruised golden delicious apple, fading oak with limestone dust. Long finish, medium acidity.

El original Chardonnay Francés. Si nunca a probado uno, qué esperas ve a la tienda y compra uno y compáralo con uno de California. No, no, no otro mundo!!

Pretty soft pear and white flowers. Rounded, supple and long. Great now. From mag.

Still young but pretty showy all the same.

I haven't been as much on board with younger Fevre but this was quite good.

Some gold reflection, dominant minerals in smell, a hint of violets, enormous refinement in taste.
