One of the greatest domaines in Chablis founded by William Fevre in 1957 and its vineyard holdings include 12 hectares of premier cru and 16 hectares of grand Cru vines. The domaines fruit is harvested by hand, a rarity in Chablis, and rigorously sorted at the winery to ensure the highest quality. In recent times the amount of new oak used has been cut back and today the average age of the barrels in the cellar is five years. From the Petit Chablis to the domaines six Grand Cru wines, the quality is superb and the range from Domaine William Fevre is a benchmark for the wines of the region.

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.

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.

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. Date: July 2020; Rating: 91-94 Points; Jasper Morris; Inside Burgundy
