About Domaine William Fevre

Fevre was once good. Now it's great. In fact, the improvement of this house is one of the most exciting developments in Chablis in the past 20 years. The ownership of the Henriot family of Champagne, which also owns Bouchard Père et Fils in Beaune, has resulted in a striking transformation.

Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2006

($55; a selection of the best parcels made after the elevage; both this and the regular Fourchaume bottling saw about 50% barriques, but no new barrels) Bright, pale color, less green than the regular bottling. Richer, riper nose suggests lemon, menthol, white flowers and hazelnut. Silky, broad and rich without being at all heavy, thanks to firm minerality. Sweeter and creamier than the Fourchaume, with a volume and structure approaching that of a grand cru. Finishes broad and long. Perhaps the most Cote d'Or-like of these 2005s in its sheer richness.

I was very impressed with this wine as I have not liked the 05 chablis style. Clean, and fresh with a breeze of ocean air and salt with a mineral nose laden with oyster and iodine. Classic chablis...

About Chablis

Wine lovers who have come to think of Chardonnay as weighty and thick will find Chablis a revelation. When grown in the cool clay-and-chalk soils around the sleepy town of Chablis, at the northern reach of Burgundy, Chardonnay is transformed into one of the world's most cerebral and distinctive white wines. With its brisk...

Chardonnay

The best Chardonnays in the world continue to arrive from the region where the grape first emerged: the chalk, clay, and limestone vineyards of Burgundy and Chablis. While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
