Domaine William Fevre Chablis "Montee de Tonnerre" Premier Cru 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The most mineral of the premier crus, the 2011 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre possesses an elusive, and at times ethereal, personality than in many ways encapsulates what Chablis is all about. It is the least obvious of the premier crus, but also the most intriguing, as every taste reveals a different shade of expression. This is a wine of enormous promise." Rober Parker's Wine Advocate

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
