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.
Combining lovely fruitiness with an attractive freshness and characteristic minerality, Chablis is a wine region with global renown. Domaine William Fèvre’s vineyards sit on Kimmeridgian subsoil and enjoy ideal exposures for the production of a very fine wine. Very elegant bouquet, developing citrus, white-fleshed fruit and floral notes. Fresh and supple, the wine is marked by mineral notes that are typical of the appellation.
This offers plenty of fruit and a deeply fleshy texture on the palate. The nose is all melon, peaches and limes and the palate has such juicy and fleshy texture, combined with a flash of bright, refreshing acidity, holding melon, pears and white peaches fresh and long. A concentrated and delicious AC from Fèvre in 2018. Drink now. Rating: 92 Points; James Suckling
A touch of reduction blends in with a hint of lanolin on this wine’s subtle nose. The palate adds zestiness to a rounded, smooth and harmonious mix of pear fruit, citrus and chalkiness. It finishes bright and fresh. Rating: 92 Points; Wine Enthusiast
This is rich and ripe, offering peach, honey and lemon flavors. Turns bracing and compact, with a long, minerally finish. Could benefit from short-term cellaring. Rating: 91 Points; Wine Spectator
This Chablis carries much more weight and concentration, with plenty of firm acidity from the ripe, forward 2018 vintage. On the palate, bright lemon fruit is combined with savoury notes of flint and pebbles. A Chablis which manages to combine both freshness and complexity. Attractive and, relatively, early drinking.
