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.
Notes of mildly exotic white peach, viognier and mineral reduction combine with those of floral and discreet spice nuances. There is a restrained energy to the caressing, intense and lilting middle weight flavors that possess good richness as well as a lovely sense of refinement on the bitter lemon-infused finale where a touch of warmth arises. This is pretty but it's not quite as dry and overall, this lacks the same depth as the best here. Tasted: Oct 2017; Drink: 2022+; Issue: 68; Rating 90-92 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
