Domaine William Fevre Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru 2012

The best Chablis I tasted while in France last year was from the Les Preuses grand cru vineyard.  You can find that post here.  The exciting thing about this wine - from the same vineyard, the same year, but a different producer - is that it tasted exactly as a grand cru Chablis should.  Shipping, storage, temperature and the other travails of getting wine to Australia were evidently well handled.  This is a chardonnay for those who like riesling.  It has aromatics of minerals, stones and citrus.  The palate has long length and is delicate with more mineral characters and racy acidity.  Delicious.
