Two Chablis 1er Cru

Chablis Les Fourchaume 2009, Domaine William FevreChablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre 2009, William Fevre
2009 Les Fourchaume 1er Cru Domaine Fevre, Chablis, France:
Bright, clear, pale lemon colour. Flinty, toasty, lemon zest and ripe nectarines on the nose. Intensely lemony with fresh stoned fruit character on the palate; a touch of cream. Delicate and elegant with a subtle hint of oak. Med acidity; med to med+ length. Far more intense than the basic Chablis. Diam cork. Didn’t hold very well after 12 hours.

2009 Montee de Tonnerre 1er Cru Domaine Fevre, Chablis, France.
Crystal clear straw colour. Very delicate floral nose, subtle white stoned fruit aromas. A little flintiness. Slightly honeyed character, lime pith, bitter lemon and spicy on the finish. Not as concentrated as the Fourchaume. Med acidity; med+ length. Diam cork (again).

2009 Chablis William Fevre, France

Chablis 2009, Domaine William Fevre, France.Pale golden yellow; crystal clear. Honeysuckle, lemon curd, and flinty aromas. Quite a linear, precise palate brimming with citrus fruit, and unripe green mangoes. Good minerality, med+ acidity and med+ length. Tasty. Excellent aperitif! Just a tad warm as it glided down me throat.
