Cellar Gems: 2004 William Fevre

2004 William Fevre – Bougros Cote Bouguerots (Chablis, France) – I believe William Fevre is one of the best producers in Chablis for the money.  It’s a favorite in our household!

The 2004 had a nice light straw yellow color.  The nose smelled of granny smith apples, wet limestone and sea air.  In the mouth, the sweet high acid green apple fruit combined with lemon, wet stone, oyster shell and just a touch of spices like nutmeg.  The dense sweet fruit carries through the very long mineraly finish, with an electric acid snap that makes you take notice.  This was my first foray, since release, into our collection of 2004 Chablis wines.  The 2004 vintage is a very “classic”  and wonderful vintage for Chablis.  They say “Good things come to those that wait.” and this wine has a long life ahead of it.  (96pts.)
