Tasting Notes

**Note: from two parcels of vines that total 2.55 ha, or 22% of the entire appellation**
A pure, cool, airy and exceptionally stylish nose of mineral reduction, green fruit, citrus zest, iodine and shellfish slides gracefully into rich, round and brilliantly well-delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess a silky mouth feel and an explosively long and bone dry finish. This impeccably poised, brilliantly concentrated yet understated effort is a textbook example of Les Preuses with its Zen-like harmony and sheer class. Along with the Les Clos, this is arguably one of the very best wines of the vintage.

Score: 94/96Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (44), October 2011

Bright, pale lemon-yellow color. Knockout nose melds pineapple, white peach, lemon oil, wild herbs, flowers and cut hay, plus a whiff of menthol. Wonderfully silky, dense and pure, with subtle sweetness cut by brilliant acidity. Utterly electric Chablis: saline, tactile and palate-saturating from start to resounding finish. I'd forget this one in the cellar: it may eventually merit an even higher rating. In 2010 and 2011, this wine challenges Vincent Dauvissat's supernal Preuses.

Score: 96+Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, July 2012

The 2010 Chablis Les Preuses combines the minerality of Valmur and the fruit of Bouguerots in a style that is immensely appealing. The wine's balance is utterly impeccable throughout. This is one of those effortless, gracious wines that is easy to underestimate because the elements are so seamlessly woven together that nothing in particular stands out. I am blown away by the sheer balance, purity and harmony of what is in the glass. This is a great showing from Fevre and Didier Seguir. Anticipated maturity: 2013+.
