William Fèvre Chablis Champs Royaux 2007

Member Review by InWineTruth:

Star bright, lemon, yellow apple and minerals, lead to citrus, golden delicious fruit with good mouth feel, minerals and a bit of gun-flint before a long, generous finish.

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

Chardonnay is probably my least favorite grape unless the wine has bubbles. But I found the Chablis to be rather good with a nice tart citrus bite.

My group found this wine buttery on the palate, cut with a fresh, lemony end. It's a good summer white- refreshing, with a slight linger on the palate.

Buttery? from lower review...um no way. This is the opposite of buttery. An high acid as a bad thing in another review? duh it's Chablis, not Napa Valley. What's next Barolo bad because it's high tannin? This is a classic Chablis, clean, bright slatey. For $20 this is a great bottle of Chard.

William Fevre founded the Domaine de la Maladière with his first harvest in 1959. For many years, Fèvre (who to this day enjoys a very good reputation as a defender of historically renowned terroirs), has worked each plot skillfully so as to make wine whose personality reflects the authenticity of the famous chalky, Kimmeridgian soils from which they spring. In 1998, the venerable Henriot family from Champagne succeeded him bringing along a very personal expertise in Chardonnay. This Chablis (100% Chardonnay) reflects their refined style. No oak aging, just stainless steel tanks and full malo-lactic to bring out the intensity of the fruit.

Round, with peach, yellow plum and a hint of mineral. A firm structure keeps this focused, with a hint of lemon zest on the finish. Drink now through 2010.

The apple, peach and mineral flavors play off the vibrant structure, while the texture remains smooth and generous. Has good regional character. Drink now through 2012.

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.
