2001 Fevre William, Chablis Le ClosApr. 2011
Medium-plus lemon yellow. Pungent aromas of fruit and stones – I honestly can’t say that it’s offereing more than intermediate-age aromas – there’s no sense of maturity. Like the nose, pungent is not a bad word to describe the intensity and weight of punch taht the flavours deliver. Balanced, good acidity and great presence. I remember buying these for 35 Swiss Francs each – you can’t get a half-bottle for that now. Still every one has been enjoyed; super wine.

Chalk and cheese versus the 01 Leflaive Bourgogne – actually (way back when) this wine was only about 10% more expensive than the Leflaive. Sharper, finer, still quite ripe but a wine of focus and precision. If anything the Leflaive had more overt concentration, but not the intensity.
2002 Fevre William, Chablis Le ClosFeb. 2010
The 2001 seems the more muscular and dense. The 2002 has a little more barrel vanilla and dimension in the mid-palate – it seems a little riper – perhaps that’s just the sweetness of the barrels(?) Both bottles were drunk over 3-4 days, left unstoppered in the refrigerator each night – the 2001 really did seem bullet-proof. Today I have a very slight preference for the 2001, tomorrow, who knows?

1998 Fevre William, Chablis Le ClosDec. 2009
Medium-plus yellow – not quite a golden colour. The nose has a little matchstick and oak, it’s quite dense, the fruit is ripe though not tropical. Decently soft, slightly waxy texture with an impression of flavour from the matchstick aromas. I would say that the only obvious mineral aspect is the finish, but it’s very long and creamy. Dense with good enough acidity. This is actually rather good – though bought for peanuts 8-or-so years ago – yet I have the impression it would have been even better in a few more years.
2002 Fevre William, Chablis BougrosJul. 2009
Maybe even lighter than the clos. Similarly fresh an wide, just a little less oomph. Lovely width, hint of lime and ripe fruit good length – very good. This was lovely.
2001 Fevre William, Chablis Le ClosJul. 2009
Yellow with green glints. Deep, hints of green fruit, a faint impression of oak and sulfur, ripe melon – quite some depth. Intense, good acidity and very mineral – hurrah, super and rather young Les Clos.
2006 Fevre William, Chablis BougrosApr. 2008
A little savoury on the nose, but no obvious toast – faint brioche though. Super minerality, acidity and focus. Very long – close to pure Chablis!
2005 Fevre William, Chablis Le ClosNov. 2007
More waxy and tight than the Preuses. Mineral and very, very long – lovely!
