Average critic rating : 94.5 points



As terrific as the Côte de Bouguerots is, this raises the bar in terms of elegance and this is one of the most elegant young Chablis that I have ever had the privilege of trying as the purity of expression here is almost beyond belief. Stunningly focused and detailed and this wine has it all with power, muscle, sap, style, complexity, typicity, concentration, depth and a palpable sense of minerality as the flavors seem as though they're cut from liquid stone. The finish left me dumbfounded as I didn't think it was possible for this to be longer than the Bouguerots. A great, great Les Clos that is worth a special search to find.

Domaine William Fevre owns a 4.15 hectare (10.25 acres) parcel in the highest sector of Chablis’s most famed vineyard, Les Clos. The 2002 (domaine), like so many infant wines from this hallowed terroir, is aromatically austere, barely revealing notes of flint. On the palate, however, it is exceptional. This impressive effort displays huge depth and concentration, a broad, ample personality, and immense underlying power. Loads of slate and flint flavors are found in its satin-textured character as well as throughout its 45+ second finish. This big, bold wine will require 4-5 years of cellaring, drink it between 2009 and 2018.||While Bernard Hervet, who oversees both Bouchard and William Fevre, prefers the 2000 vintage in Chablis “for its minerality and austerity,” your author believes 2002 is the finest set of wines to have been produced at this estate/negociant firm in many years.
