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.
This too offers a wonderfully broad range of classic Chablis elements that include mineral reduction, iodine, ocean breeze and quinine on the citrus-infused nose. The racy, detailed and beautifully textured and focused flavors deliver outstanding length on the balanced, saliva-inducing and sneaky long finish. This is also quite classy and if not quite as complete as the Preuses at present, the track record this wine has of developing superb depth over time gives it the slight edge at this early juncture.

The 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Côte Bouguerots is brilliant, unwinding in the glass with notes of warm bread, crisp orchard fruit, beeswax and oyster shell. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's deep and concentrated, with huge reserves of chalky structure and an incisive spine of acidity. It concludes with a finish of almost disconcerting intensity. Again, this is a very tightly wound young wine, cropped at only 29 hectoliters per hectare, and it will require and reward patience.

Brisk mid lemon colour. Steely nose, perhaps a waft of ripe lemon with it. Just 25 hl/ha produced. Very pure, intense white fruit, but with its electric backbone of steel, and exceptional intensity with its usual brilliant white fruit character. Coats the teeth and excellent length.
