Very much a wine for Chablis purists, it's taut and very pithy, with impressive focus, bite and palate length and deftly integrated 40% new wood. The dry extract adds extra backbone.

The bouquet is precise, complex and perfectly ripe, offering up scents of pear, lemon, beeswax, spring flowers and a gloriously complex base of chalky soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and full-bodied, with truly stunning backend mineral drive and cut on the long, nascently complex and vibrant finish. Great juice.

The mouth feel of the big, bold and robust flavors is muscular and serious while displaying outstanding length on the super-saline and impressively complex finale. This too is terrific though it is very clearly built for extended aging.

It’s medium-to full-bodied with creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Really intriguing and thought-provoking. Drink or hold.

Full-bodied, deep and layered, with a textural attack, racy acids and a long, mineral finish, it should prove one of the most long-lived wines in Fèvre's portfolio this year. - WK

The palate is pretty and nicely poised, with a twist of sour lemon lending tension on the entry. Moderate in weight, this is a linear Valmur that feels a little harsh on the finish at the moment. The jury is out on this one. -- Neal Martin
