*Cellar Selection* Big and powerful, this is the grandest of the grand crus. It has both a dense structure and overwhelming fruits. With minerality, spice and balance, this is a very complete wine. There is only a hint of the richness to come. Hold for 10 years at least. (RV)
In contrast to the relative expressiveness of most of this group, the Les Clos is backward, reserved and very tight, revealing only glimpses of white flower, oyster shell and an airy marine influence that can also be found on the intense, pure and astonishingly precise flavors that possess another dimension relative to all of the other '05s with the exception of the Preuses. Class in a glass as they say and while presently tighter than a drum with an exceptionally dry finish, this has the material and balance to age for years. Drink 2012+.
Pale green color. Pure but subdued aromas of lemon-lime and crushed stone. Intensely flavored and youthfully tight, offering sharply delineated citrus fruit, white peach and crushed stone elements. In a cooler style for the vintage, with just the slightest exotic hint to show that it's from a very warm year. The very long, rising finish displays uncommon precision for the vintage.
Enticing aromas of butterscotch, peaches, lemon tart and fresh cream. Crisp, creamy, silken palate. Very good concentration. Layers of stone fruit, cream and minerals. Long finish. (LPB-Wine Journal)
Just honeyed lemon. Richer on the palate than the other Fèvre Grands Crus. More weight but still very very pure and tight. Very classy. 18/20 points.
