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.
A ripe yet restrained nose combines notes of both green and white fruit with those of tidal pool and discreet but not invisible wood influence. The dense, powerful and imposingly scaled flavors brim with dry extract that largely buffers the moderately firm acid spine shaping the clean, tension-filled and relatively dry finish that is slightly better balanced as well.
