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 riper and mildly exotic if very, very restrained nose is still appealingly elegant while offering equally good Chablis character. The pure, refined and almost painfully intense middle weight flavors are much fine if at the expense of power on the almost pungently mineral-driven finish that is shaped by grapefruit-tinged acidity. While in need of better depth, this bone-dry and chiseled effort should also age effortlessly while it develops it.

Cropped at a paltry 20 hectoliters per hectare, the 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir unfurls in the glass with aromas of musky peach, orange oil and clear honey, mingled with hints of iodine and dried white flowers. Full-bodied, ample and satiny, it's layered and tightly wound, with racy acids and striking concentration. This will really repay extended bottle age.

Beautiful pure very pale primrose, even a colour to fall in love with. Magically balanced crystalline Chablis. On the palate the wood shows prominently at the moment, but the purity of the finish suggests that this will integrate extremely well. A lean lime infused thread maintains the fresher approach, but there are still, some more voluptuous fresh peach notes in the background. Date: July 2020; Rating: 94-96 Points; Jasper Morris; Inside Burgundy
