Being one of the most established and renowned estates in Chablis since 1959, Domaine William Fevre was sold to Maisons et Domaines Henriot in 1998, and now owns around 78 hectares of vineyards, including 15.9 hectares of Premier Crus, 15.2 hectares of Grand Crus which consist of 6 out of 7 Grand Cru appellations, and also produce village wines. Over the years, they have continuously maintained very high quality from village level to Grand Cru. The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully sorted through to ensure the best quality input into the wines. By using an average age of 6 years old barrels, it helps to preserve the freshness and minerality, at the same time aims to finely express the subtle variations in Chablis. Also worth noting is that William Fevre has been practicing sustainable growing in its vineyards for nearly 10 years now, and it obtained the highest level of environmental certification - “High Environmental Value” (HVE) status - in France in 2015.
A top name to remember in Chablis, and these bottles have grown up with ages, we are delighted to offer -
William Fevre Bougros Cote Bouguerots Grand Cru 2009
HK$890 per bottle, 12 available, ETA Sep 2022
95pts Allen Meadows
This is a big step up in refinement, particularly aromatically with an abundance of oyster shell and tidal pool nuances that add breadth to the white flower, citrus and Chablis-style green fruit. The rich, powerful and mouth coating flavors possess real drive but also beautiful detail on the intensely mineral-driven finish that possesses outstanding length. This is really quite dry, at least within the context of the 2009 vintage. In a word, terrific.
William Fevre Les Clos Grand Cru 2009
HK$950 per bottle, 12 available, ETA Sep 2022
95pts Allen Meadows
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 that complement well the rich, powerful and intensely mineral-driven flavors that possess fine focus and verve on the explosively long and oyster shell-infused finish. This is seriously impressive in absolute terms but especially so in the context of the vintage.
Apart from the Vintage 2009, we can also offer the following mature and shining Chablis Grand Cru from William Fevre -
