William Fevre Antis Maipo Valley Chile 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The best of the wines from the impressive William Fèvre estate, the<br/>Antis is a blend of equal proportions of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and<br/>Carmenère. Hand harvested and allowed a generous maceration after the<br/>fermentation, this is a true vin de garde, having matured for 14 months in new<br/>French barrels then another 12 in bottle before release. There is majestic<br/>poise here, with notably rounded tannins, a real elegance of fruit and a<br/>serious length at the end of the mouth. A very exciting addition to the<br/>hitherto somewhat limited cannon of Chilean greats. <br/>(Simon Field MW - BBR Buyer)

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
