DESCRIPTION

Burghound (Allen Meadows) 90-93 “Sweet Spot”

“A restrained nose is comprised by notes of smoky reduction, sea breeze and a whiff of exotic fruit. The super-rich, dense and very suave flavors coat the palate with sappy dry extract while the powerful and focused finish delivers outstanding length.”

 

View from the Cellar (John Gillman) 94

“Vaulorent again was a premier cru that was frosted quite severely in 2017, but the Domaine William Fèvre version was showing a classical profile and no signs of out of the ordinary concentration from the frost. The bouquet is deep, complex and grand cru quality, as it delivers scents of lime, apple, pear, chalky and flinty minerality, dried flowers and a youthful topnote of lime peel. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and sports beautiful mid-palate depth, with great cut and grip, excellent balance and a very, very long and vibrant finish. 2022-2050.”

 

Vinous Media (Neal Martin) 92-94

“The 2017 Chablis Vaulorent 1er Cru is the richest of William Fèvre’s wines on the nose, despite just a touch of reduction. It has a complex bouquet with scents of toffee apple, honeysuckle, marzipan and almond that is very well defined. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, very harmonious in the mouth with tangy marmalade and citrus lemon on the finish. Excellent.”

 

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 92-94

“The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent promises to be the finest of Fèvre's premiers crus this year, unfurling in the glass with a classy bouquet of peach, oystershell, iodine and spice, framed by light reduction. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and textural, with lovely stony depth and tension, concluding with a saline finish. Perhaps it's simply the power of association, but I'm tempted to identify an echo of neighboring Les Preuses here.”
