Tasting Notes

Colour Pale Lemon
Nose Here the wood influence is somewhat more noticeable though not enough to materially detract from the otherwise pure, cool and high-toned white flower, stone and sea breeze suffused aromas.
Palate Rich, powerful and intensely mineral-driven flavors that possess fine focus and verve on the explosively long finish.
Food Pairing Seafood
Cellaring 3-5 Years

William Fevre
Domaine William Fevre is without doubt one of the greatest Domaines in Chablis. It was founded by William Fevre back in 1957 includes 12 hectares of premier cru and 16 hectares of grand Cru vines.



From vine to bottle, the Domaine ensures the highest quality by hand-harvesting (a rare thing in Chblis) and rigorously sort the fruit again in the winery. Recently, the amount of new oak has been honed back, such that the average age of oak barrels is now 6 years old.



By practicing sustainable growing in its vineyards for almost a decade, Domaine William Fevre has recently (Feb, 2015) obtained "High Environmental Value" (HVE) status, which is the highest level of environmental certification. The wines are all of the highest order, from the modestly priced Petit Chablis to the Six Grand Cru wines. Consistently the the quality is superb, making William Fevre a benchmark producer in the region.
Chablis Grand Cru
Chablis Grand Cru is the appellation for the very highest-quality dry white wines produced around the famous town of Chablis in Northern-central France. The area is just 250 acres (100ha) of excellent vineyards on limestone rich 'Kimmeridgian soils'. The wines come from just a handful of distinct plots on one south-west-facing slope east of the town. Approximately 3% of the total Chablis output is Grand Cru.



The vineyard sites are Bougros, Les Preuses, Vaudésir, Grenouilles, Valmur, Les Clos, Blanchot and finally 'La Moutonne' which is unofficial but gradually becoming widely accepted.



There are stringent regulations guarding the quality of these wines including permitted yields, alcohol, time matured and when they can be released. This strict set of rules creates amazing minerally and honeyed flavoured wines of longevity with bottles ageing 10, 15 and even 20+ years and still at peak enjoyment.
