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.
Combining fruit from Bréchain, Pied d’Aloup and mostly Chapelots, which add up to 2.2 hectares in all, this another brilliant release from Didier Séguier. Even thought this is a warm site, it’s the most saline in Chablis in many ways. Taut, refreshing and crisp with very subtle oak adding a patina of extra complexity.

The cool and restrained nose is mostly comprised by notes of mineral reduction though there are background nuances of iodine, pear and white flowers in evidence. I very much like the power and intensity to the concentrated yet refined medium weight flavors that display more evident minerality on the beautifully textured and persistent finish that is ever-so-mildly youthfully austere. This is more classically styled than most of these 2015s. Drink: 2021+ Rating: 90-93 Points; Sweet spot Outstanding. Allen Meadows; Burghound
