William Fevre Chablis les Preuses 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Burghound review: This would be almost impossible to miss the origins as the marine influence on<br/>the pungently mineral, airy and superbly elegant nose is extremely strong with<br/>Chablis character to burn. The seductive middle weight flavours brim with dry<br/>extract, which does a perfect job of buffering the structural elements on the<br/>mouth coating and sappy finish that seems to go on and on. About the only<br/>distinction between this and the other grands crus is that the finish is<br/>perhaps not quite as precise as that of the Valmur but otherwise, this is very<br/>Preuses and very classy juice. <br/>(Allen Meadows, Burghound.com - Oct 09)

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...

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. "

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. Its tacti... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2008 Fevre, Domaine William Chablis Bougros Grand Cru 750ml

An enticing mix of apple and green plum notes, with a hint of seashore and spice, mingle with the bright structure in this white. Theres a slight grain to the texture, and this ends on the tart side, yet theres plenty of substance midpalate. Needs ... Wine Spectator.

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.
