Domaine William Fèvre, Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru 2005

Fevre Clos 2005 #2

Fevre Clos 2005 #1

Pale straw with emerald hints.  Totally hidden at first.  Rather severe and tightly wound: overt chalkiness, oyster-shell and herbal peppermint.  An impression of still locked-up citrus.  A reductive and seemingly ‘hot’ wine overcome by its minerality, a molten mass of grand cru energy pointed inward to the point of immolation.  Still grudging on day two: a little more fruit character present, green apple & citrus, mostly pip, pit and pith.  But overall, the sense is of a wine illusive and imploded.  Going through a difficult adolescence, to say the least.  Better plan with this bottle would have been to leave it out, uncorked, to be slow consumed over the course of week.  From 2015+.
