Brilliant pale, green-tinged color. Liquid stone, green apple, lime, mint and talc on the nose. Dense, chewy, penetrating and powerful, with extraordinary force in the middle palate. Tactile, dusty and gripping. The wine's ripeness and palate-staining length transcend the vintage. (ST)
The color remains pale gold and the nose reflects this youthfulness because while there are hints of exotic fruit and soft secondary scents, this is surprisingly fresh for a 14 year old Chablis from a difficult vintage. Consistent with the nose, the delicious, round and solidly well-concentrated flavors exude a fine bead of minerality before culminating in a lingering, balanced and lightly saline and mineral-inflected finish. This has turned out extremely well and still has plenty of life ahead of it.
Given what took place in Chablis, it is a testimony to Henriot's dedication to quality and Didier Seguier's talent that William Fevre was able to produce an outstanding 2001 Chablis Les Clos. Its rich mineral aromas lead to a medium-bodied, fresh, pear, flint, and mineral-dominated personality. This lovely, silky-textured wine will not make old bones, but it delivers honest-to-goodness grand cru quality from a poor vintage. Bravo! (PR)
