Viña William Fèvre:
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.

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

Fresh, refined aromas of flowers and fruit. On the palate, it is distinguished by particular subtlety: a delicious blend of softness and liveliness.Round and airy, it is very charming from its first youth.

Even though the straight Bougros is finer than usual, it is no where near as elegant and pure as its counterpart as the high-toned and strikingly layered nose of oyster shell, mineral reduction and perfumed cool green fruit is extremely seductive and...

A Riesling-reminiscent amalgam of fresh lime, white peach, chalk and salt marks the nose and palate of Fevre's 2008 Chablis Bougros, which in a role reversal from vintage norms is firmer and adamantly more mineral than its 2007 counterpart.

Domaine William Fevre Chablis Champs Royaux 2008 750mlWall Street Journal"The entry-level wine from Fvre has real Chablis character. A briney nose leads to a refreshingly citric slap of green-apple fruit. A great summer aperitif. "

Apple, melon and mineral notes mingle in this vibrant, balanced white, which lingers with a Granny Smith flavor and a mouthwatering impression. Drink now through 2012.

Pale yellow-green color. Crushed stone, lime oil and ethereal white flowers on the nose. Wonderfully elegant wine combining serious richness and density with terrific grip. The white peach, spearmint and spice flavors are complicated by a soil-driven saline minerality. Finishes with superb grip and dusty length. This is two-thirds Chapelots and one-third Pied d'Aloue, the former providing fat and the latter minerality, according to winemaker Seguier. Grand cru suavity and complexity here.

Pale, green-tinged yellow. Compellingly pure, complex nose melds citrus fruits, ginger, crushed rock and minerals. Wonderfully dense and vibrant in the mouth, conveying an impression of power and structure. This silky, voluminous wine boasts incredible depth without any impression of weight. The fine-grained, rising finish offers exceptional length. From south-facing vines on a very steep (52o), rocky slope. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 09, Stephen Tanzer
