Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent 2021

Critical Acclaim: 95 pts Decanter; 94 pts Burghound; 94 pts Jasper Morris; 94 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. 

Winemaker's Tasting Notes: Powerful nose, combining aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruit with a mineral note typical of the appellation. Rich and concentrated, the palate has remarkable freshness and length.

"Fevre's Vaulorent is just a little more precise on the nose. Seguier says it is always elegant, always fresh. Fevre's take on this renowned premier cru has an understated nose yet you can feel the power within. Lovely ripeness of fruit, but all in a very compact package at the moment. Although this is disarmingly approachable now, this will be a wine to cellar carefully, allowing all the perfectly formed components to blossom."- Decanter. 

"A much less expressive nose, indeed it is all but mute, requires aggressive swirling to eventually coax aromas of white orchard fruit, citrus blossom and seawater. The richer and slightly more powerful flavors also possess a sophisticated mouthfeel along with excellent depth and persistence on the balanced finale where a touch of youthful austerity slowly emerges. In a word, terrific."- Burghound. 

"This sample represents the whole of it, but Didier may select some out to make a Fourchaumes bottling as well. 32 hl/ha overall. Fully cloudy at the moment, with an opaque white fruit on the nose, and more of the fresh pears. At the moment the class shows more in the volume on the palate, where there is real density and then a fine youthful bitterness at the end. This is loaded towards the back of the palate, always a good sign. Drink from 2026-2032."- Jasper Morris

"The 2021 Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent is another of the range's highlights, bursting with aromas of white flowers, sweet citrus oil, white peach and blanched almonds. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and seamless, it's concentrated and complete, with racy acids and a saline, orange blossom-inflected finish."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
