2002 Chablis Les Clos

William Fevre

95Average Score
flagBurgundy / France

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.
