2019 Domaine William Fevre Les Lys Chablis Premier Cru
An airier and more elegant if more restrained nose freely offers up its aromas of mineral reduction, acacia, citrus and iodine. The tightly wound and notably intense flavors exude evident minerality on the super-sleek, bone-dry and chiseled finish. I would underscore that this is unusually powerful in terms of what is typical for Les Lys with sneaky good length. One to consider. Drink 2026+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Cropped at a mere 17 hectoliters per hectare, the 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Les Lys has turned out brilliantly, unwinding in the glass with notes of crisp stone fruit, pear and green apple, complemented by subtle hints of oyster shell and mandarin. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and precise, with tangy acids and a pungently chalky finish, it will reward bottle age. Drink 2025 - 2045.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Aug 2021)
The Fèvre holding comes from the top of the vineyard by the wood, and has delivered only a small crop unfortunately. Pure clear primrose, very stylish sensual wine, still, some gas, which is helpful and will be maintained. Very succulent, more character than usual, with a crisp fresh backbone and exceptional length.
