William Fevre

William Fèvre is one of Chablis’ greatest wine domaines, developed by the eponymous William Fèvre. JASPER MORRIS MW

Under the supervision and winemaking of super-talented Didier Seguier, Domaine William Fevre has been catapulted into the top echelon of Chablis’s producers (and if you don’t believe me, just ask Vincent Dauvissat or Bernard Raveneau). PIERRE ROVANI, The Wine Spectator

Unfortunately yields were awful and across all of our terroirs we realized only one-third of a normal crop. With respect to the style of the wines, the minerality has become much more apparent as the élevage has progressed. The 2016s are very rich and dense wines of high maturity that manage to remain balanced and refreshing. Between 2015 and 2016, I have a slight preference for 2016 due to the more evident minerality.” I have mentioned this before but it bears repeating so readers will not be surprised: for several years now Fèvre has elected to bottle its entire range, including the grands crus, under the Diam cork.

Séguier finds the young ‘16s “very pure and delineated, with no deviation. They show reductive shellfish notes and good minerality. And they’re dense and concentrated due to the low crop levels” STEPHEN TANZER
