William Fevre is one of the most prestigious of all Chablis houses and, despite its relative youth, produces some of the finest expressions of Chardonnay from the north of Burgundy.
The Fevre family has been in Chablis for 250 years, but the domaine itself wasn’t established until 1959. Today, William Fevre owns around 76 hectares (190 acres) in Chablis, 15ha of which are in grand cru vineyards including Les Clos, Vaudesir, Bougros and Preuses. This variety of plots gives a complete and full profile of wines – for example, those from Bougros are typically full-bodied and rounded, while those from Vaudesir are more lively, fresh and floral. A further 16ha of vineyards are classified as premier cru.
