98 points James Suckling: "Incredible wine here with cooked-apple, lemon-curd, vanilla-bean and praline aromas that follow through to a full body with layers of fruit and a long, flavorful finish. It shows aniseed, licorice and fennel seed. (6/15/21)"

95-97 points Jasper Morris, MW (Inside Burgundy): "2ha of Les Clos were planted by Maurice Fèvre between 1947 and 1952, a time when much of the hillside was bare. The 2019 yields just 25 h/ha and had recently been racked, so had not fallen clear. The bouquet is immense. Keep sniffing, and it keeps offering more. This year Les Clos has a dimension over and above all the others. Not just density, but amazing depth. A little touch of bitters too, which we like at this stage. Such great length! (Jul 2020)"

96 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos has turned out brilliantly, mingling aromas of orange oil, confit citrus and crisp green apple with notes of warm bread, white flowers, oyster shell and anise in an incipiently complex bouquet. Full-bodied, layered and muscular, it's concentrated and tightly wound, with broad shoulders and huge depth at the core, concluding with a long, electric finish. It was cropped at 25 hectoliters per hectare. Drink: 2027-2057. (Aug 2021)"

93-96 points/'Don't miss!' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from 4 separate parcels totaling 4.11 ha, 3 of which are all at the top of the slope). If Kimmeridgian could be distilled, it would likely smell exactly like the nose of the 2019 Les Clos with the additions of wet chalk, citrus zest and oyster shell. There is equally good delineation to the snappy, painfully intense and overtly stony large-bodied flavors that deliver superb length on the balanced finale. This elegant and classy effort is also built on a base of almost pungent minerality and a wine that is indisputably going to age effortlessly for years. Drink: 2031+. (Nov 2020)"

95 points Andy Howard, MW (Decanter): " Les Clos needs no introduction being the largest and most famous Grand Cru. Fevre's 2019 is a stunning combination of power, purity and elegance. The ripeness of 2019 comes through in the lovely stone fruit flavours but the class of Les Clos is shown by the structure and acidity on the palate. Oak has been used but is really not evident on the palate. There is great drive here with vibrant characters of zesty citrus fruits, saline notes and a lingering mineral finish. Drinking Window: 2022-2031. (Oct 2020)"

Bill Nanson (Burgundy Report): "4.10 ha, principally the higher section but some lower towards Grenouilles – mainly planted before 1950 by that father of Willaim Fevre. Always the only wine in this – or pretty much any line-up of great Chablis that makes me think – Chevalier-Montrachet! Different! The most overtly floral and of course incredibly inviting nose – it must be great! Mouthfilling, a halo of fresh energy. A fleeting suggestion of barrel but again just another note of complexity. More Chablis, less Chevalier-Montrachet than many vintages I taste – perhaps not the nose – but still a wine to wait for. Any more than 10 years will be to your advantage, but 10 should be a great starting point. (Feb 2021)"
