Domaine William Fèvre-Chablis Grand Cru les Clos Vin Blanc Domaine William Fèvre Bourgogne Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2009

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2009 Chablis Les Clos is a beauty. Stunningly rich and deep, it possesses gorgeous textural richness and depth in its layers of intensely perfumed peaches and apricots. The fruit totally saturates the palate with incredible depth and nuance in it... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2009 Fevre, Domaine William Chablis les Clos Grand Cru 750ml

Founded in 1959, William Fèvre owns the largest array of Grands Crus Vineyards (15.2 hectares) and benefits from ideal conditions  to produce excellent Chablis. A category leader in the US, William Fèvre Domaine wines are farmed organically and biodynamically. Imported in the U.S. by Maisons and Domaines Henriot Americas along with sister Houses Champagne Henriot, Bouchard Pere and Fils (Burgundy) Chateau de Poncie (Fleurie) and Beaux Freres (Oregon). The history of wine-making in Chablis goes back to 865 AD with the development of vineyards by the monks of Saint-Martin-de-Tours on slopes facing the Serein River that cuts through that village. At that time and for the centuries that followed, the Chablis wine trade grew substantially thanks to the waterways that made it possible to supply Paris from Auxerre. With the French Revolution, estates changed hands but remained successful, and the total vineyard surface area reached 38,000 hectares. The end of the 19th century saw the coming of phylloxera in 1887, which wreaked havoc and reduced the vineyards to almost nothing. It was only at the beginning of the 1960s, when the Chablis vineyard surface area was less than 1,000 hectares, that Chablis wine production took off again with the growth of mechanization and setting up of anti-frost systems (another plague for the vines of the region). The current productive vineyard surface area is 4,580 hectares. Read less

Pale yellow. Subtle stone and citrus fruit aromas complicated by white pepper and a whiff of honey. Wonderfully rich and solid in the mouth, but with a distinct youthful austerity to the flavors of orange peel, iodine and pepper. The palate-dustin... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
