Chablis Vaillons, Domaine William Fèvre 2018
Mostly located in Vaillons itself, in the centre of the steep slope. Glowing pale green with a lean and hungry nose. The wine opens out really well on the palate, this one has nailed the vintage, with an extra gloss, delicious perfume on the classic bone structure. I love the crunch and energy of the aftertaste. Tasted: May 2019

Fèvre's 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons was still a little troubled with suspended lees when I tasted it, so it's early days to make any definitive judgement, but this—along with Vaudésir—was the domaine's first pick this year, and it's certainly lively and elegantly textural, with chalky extract and good precision on the finish.
