An elegant classic in this refined and harmonious Chardonnay style. Backed by the powerful Henriot house, William Fevre have access to superb facilities and great vineyards for both Cru and village Chablis. An effortless choice for lovers of the delicately fruited, mineral-streaked and fish-friendly Chardonnay for which Chablis is beloved. Beautiful stuff.

Its Origins

William Fèvre is one of Chablis’ greatest wine domaines, developed by the eponymous William Fèvre between 1957 and his retirement in 1998 when he sold to the Champagne House Joseph Henriot. William Fèvre began with just 7 hectares and had soon increased this to 48ha, planting widely in the best of the 1ers and grands crus where the vineyards had fallen by the wayside. However the Fèvre penchant for new oak was not to everybody’s taste. Since the Henriot purchase the wines are made by the talented Didier Séguier who had previously been with the Bouchard team in Beaune. The domaine wines include 12 hectares of premier cru vineyards and no less than 16 hectares of grand crus. The whole crop of their domaine wines, straight Chablis included, is harvested by hand, the grands crus in small ‘cagettes’, with a sorting table back at the winery to ensure the quality of the raw material.

What The Critics Say

88-90/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer

"(just 18 hectoliters per hectare produced): Hazy medium yellow. At once more fruity and more exotic than the Champs Royaux, offering scents of orange zest, lemon, mango and lichee. Fat, round, rather large-scaled wine with serious volume for a village offering, but kept fresh by a streak of limey acidity. Finishes with noteworthy persistence. This will be good in six months but needs time to knit." Drink 2017 - 2022

16/20 Jancis Robinson MW

"Quite broad for Chablis, without the expected zippy acidity. Generous green-apple fruit with some lemon-citrus elements too. Pretty good persistence to finish. (RH)." 2018 - 2020
