Domaine William Fèvre, Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru 2008

Fevre Vaudesir 2008

From three acres of vines in two separate parcels, the larger of which lies at the sirloin ‘amphitheater’ section.  Planted by William Fèvre’s father in 1947, 1948, 1952 on steep, south-facing slopes.

Star bright with an emerald sheen.  Expressive and complex: sunlight off steel and iodine sea-air.  Old-viney, intense, dry-extract rich.  It tastes more yellow and orange than Fèvre’s other grand crus: the fruit ripens earlier in Vaudésir.  Buoyant acidity to make it aérienne; vibratory minerality to give it soul.  Galvanic Vaudésir.  Now – 2020+.
