Notes de dégustation


Fevre’s 2008 Chablis Vaulorent – which, following my argumentative recommendation mentioned in issue 186, has been labeled without the name “Fourchaume” – lives up to the estate’s long-standing characterization of this site as their “eighth grand cru.” Blueberry and raspberry distillate as well as fresh lime, grapefruit and crushed stone both intrigue and invigorate on the nose, impressions reinforced on a palate that combines real richness of texture as well as succulence of fruit with bright acidity, citrus rind pungency, berry skin tartness, and a depth of marine mineral nuances. Vibrantly interactive and faintly sizzling in finish, this practically takes your breath away, and should continue dazzling for a decade or more. And given that this isn’t priced as a grand cru, it represents a remarkable Chablis buying opportunity. Perhaps in the final analysis most of the “genuine” Fevre grand crus have further to traverse in their evolution than this Vaulorent and will eventually overtake it in complexity, length, and energy ? perhaps.


Pale greenish-yellow. High-toned aromas of white peach, curry powder and crushed stone. Rather reduced in the mouth, but with noteworthy clarity to its stone fruit, pepper and spice flavors. This smooth and fine-grained wine reminded me of a dry riesling from Alsace Superb acids carry the fruit through a long finish, which features a lingering pineapple perfume. As I mentioned last year, winemaker Seguier refers to this distinctly different section of Fourchaume as the eighth grand cru of Chablis.
