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 could be from nowhere else except Chablis with its citrus-tinged aromas of tidal pool, white flowers and shellfish. The racy, intense and painfully intense larger-scaled flavors possess cuts-like-a-knife delineation on the bone-dry and super-saline finish where a distinct bitter lemon quality slowly emerges. This is very classy juice and also built-to-age. Tasted: Oct 2021; Drink: 2031+; Issue: 84; Rating 95 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
The 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses bursts from the glass with scents of orange oil, warm bread, crisp stone fruits and oyster shell. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and enveloping, yields of only 23 hectoliters per hectare mean that it's immensely concentrated, with racy acids and a long, pungently intense finish.

This has not fallen clear yet. Didier likes the marriage between the two parts of Preuses, i.e. both the, southerly slope and the section, which slopes gently to the north. Generous ripeness. Greater warmth and roundness than Côte Bouguerots, but still a good line of tension through the middle, with a useful slight bitterness at the finish – les jolis amers. Grand cru weight and impressive length bringing out the saline character at the end. Date: July 2020; Rating: 93-96 Points; Jasper Morris; Inside Burgundy
