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.
Slightly honied aromas of exotic white and yellow peach are laced with moderate amounts of classic Chablis character. Interestingly, the medium-bodied flavors are not quite as dense as those of the Les Lys though they are still notably powerful while offering just a bit more depth on the sneaky long, sappy and serious finale. At least some patience will be necessary. Tasted: Nov 2020; Drink: 2026+; Issue: 80; Rating 91-93 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
The 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu unwinds in the glass with notions of orange oil, clear honey, beeswax and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, it's racy and chiseled, with terrific concentration and a long, pungently saline finish.

Lemon and lime colour. A little sunny grapeyness to this, attractive, very old vines, the class shows once the wine is in the mouth, building steadily in weight through to the back. Plenty in reserve here and the weight of ripe fruit is sufficiently balanced by the acidity. Date: July 2020; Rating: 92-94 Points; Jasper Morris; Inside Burgundy
