A pure, cool, airy and exceptionally stylish nose of mineral reduction, green fruit, citrus zest, iodine and shellfish slides gracefully into rich, round and brilliantly well-delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess a silky mouth feel and an explosively long and bone dry finish. This impeccably poised, brilliantly concentrated yet understated effort is a textbook example of Les Preuses with its Zen-like harmony and sheer class. Along with the Les Clos, this is arguably one of the very best wines of the vintage.

Knockout nose melds pineapple white peach lemon oil wild herbs flowers and cut hay plus a whiff of menthol. Wonderfully silky dense and pure with subtle sweetness cut by brilliant acidity. Utterly electric Chablis: saline tactile and palate-saturating from start to resounding finish. I'd forget this one in the cellar: it may eventually merit an even higher rating. In 2010 and 2011 this wine challenges Vincent Dauvissat's supernal Preuses. 96+

Tasted alongside the corresponding 2012 and 2011, Fevre’s 2010 Chablis Les Preuses accentuates both the sweet-saline savor of scallop and the briny, nutty, oyster liqueur and seaweed that are also part and parcel of the subsequent renditions, resulting in an experience that taps the imagination and salivary glands with equal urgency. Struck flint smokiness and fusil notes lend persistent pungency and bittersweet floral perfume further allure, while fresh citrus serves for luscious refreshment. This finishes with superb complexity and much of the mystery and clarity found in the 2012. When one considers the contrast between baked-in concentration of a torrid mid-August in 2012 and the cool but desiccating north wind of September 2010, I wonder that the two wines are not even more strikingly different. But perhaps the contribution of the site itself is, after all, definitive. - David Schildknecht

Very creamy texture but in balance with the freshness. Clear, determined citrus streak along with the classic mineral core, though the oak softens the minerality. 17.5/20 (JH)
