The palate plays these twin notions off each other in a subtle, fresh way, despite the concentration and depth. This wine is cool and zesty at its core but generous and lightfooted at the surface. Allow this to calm down and come forth with its compelling core. Drink by 2040. ANNE KREBIEHL MW

(95-97 points) The holding comprises 2.5 ha planted between 1947 and 1952 and all still in great condition. Pale lemon colour.

The nose is restrained but you are immediately in the presence of majesty. This has the most volume of all but is not the easiest to see. It has more flesh than Les Preuses, along with a different but equal mineral vitality to Côte Bouguerots The two together make something exceptional!

The Fèvre holdings in Les Clos are the envy of Chablis - seven parcels (five of them high on the slope) covering 4.14ha, with more than half over 60 years' old.

This is a brilliant expression of the Grand Cru, marrying power and intensity with focus, balance and palate length. Stylishly oaked, with the concentration to age, it's a textbook white, showing white pepper and citrus flavours and notes of kelp and oyster shell. Drinking Window 2021 - 2033

The bouquet is pure, precise and already gorgeously complex, offering up scents of pear, apple, beeswax, spring flowers, a very complex base of chalky minerality and a topnote of oyster shell. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very precise on the attack, with a great core of fruit, stellar minerality and a very long, very racy and complex finish. Great, great wine.

A very ripe, dense Chablis, yet it maintains energy and focus. Crushed-stone and mineral highlights. Full-bodied and formed with a solid core of fruit and energy. Drink or hold.

Full-bodied, muscular and layered, it's textural and fleshy, with a deep and tightly wound core, racy acids and a chalky finish. This is a fine effort that will improve with bottle age, but it is a bit more front-loaded out of the gates than the very fine 2017 rendition. - WK

There is a really lovely mouthfeel to the sappy large-bodied flavors thanks to the copious quantity of dry extract that also serves to buffer the moderately firm acid spine on the powerful, punchy and intensely saline-inflected finale. While there is a hint of backend warmth, this beautiful effort should age well while adding depth along the way.

Wine Spectator, December 2020
There is a fleshy core here, an ideal foil for its peach, melon and lemon flavors. As this plays out on the lingering finish, a mineral note emerges. Excellent harmony. Drink now through 2027. 120 cases imported. — BS
