Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

One of Domaine William Fevre's premier cru vineyards, located on the Left Bank. A lively Chablis, ideal for those who like wine with racy acidity and crisp characters. Medium bodied, waves of crisp green apple arouse the senses with an underlying mineral freshness. The palate is awash with green fruit flavours with hints of toasted chestnut leaving a generous and rewarding finish. Drink now for fresh characteristics or cellar for up to 5 years to allow the wine to develop more rounded and complex flavours.

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

Beautiful deepest harvest-straw in color - almost lemon-oil yellow in the glass. Good viscosity. Light northern mountain bog-cranberry and spice on the nose with the usual mineral overtones. Somewhat neutral upon entry with more cranberry. Very dry, showing its age, with a fairly neat medium finish. A bit lacking mid-palate. Still, very Chablis and clean if slightly disappointing for a Premium Cru from an above average vintage and purveyor.
