2019 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses, William Fèvre

This has a gorgeous nose of sweet, floral fruit. It seems so harmonious, but is actually a blend of two parcels, one adding freshness and tension, the other depth and richness. They are matched so seamlessly that the overall effect is of a mellifluous and complete wine. Elegant, pure, deep, rich, fresh, and arrestingly beautiful.

TASTING NOTES

This too could be from nowhere else except Chablis with its citrus-tinged aromas of tidal pool, white flowers and shellfish. The racy, intense and painfully intense larger-scaled flavors possess cuts-like-a-knife delineation on the bone dry and super-saline finish where a distinct bitter lemon quality slowly emerges. This is very classy juice and also built-to-age.
