Lot #18. William Fèvre (Domaine) Chablis Vaulorent 2008

Description: Consists of 5 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 WA.
"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." Wine Advocate #191, Oct 2010
Provenance: The Atlantic Cellar
Notes: 1 Very lightly torn, 1 torn, 1 nicked labels.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $325
