William Fevre Chablis Champs Royaux France-Burgundy-Chablis 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Combining great fruitiness with a pleasant freshness, and that special mineral character, Chablis is an appellation of reference all over the world. The vineyards, with the Kimmeridgian subsoil, are ideally exposed to sun and climate to give birth to great wine, thanks to the attention of the Domaine’s team.

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

A tightly wound, bracing white, featuring lemon and Granny Smith apple flavors, which lead to a chalky feel on the finish. Drink now through 2014.

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.

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.

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.

Bottled three weeks before I tasted it in late June, Fevre’s 2012 Chablis Champ Royaux — based, as usual, on purchased fruit — offers a juicy amalgam of honeydew and lime on a glossy palate, leading to a relatively simple but refreshing, invigorating and persistent finish. Plan to enjoy it through 2014.
