William Fevre Chablis Premiere Cru Fourchaume Chablis Chablis Premier Cru France Burgundy 2006

Member Review by zufrieden:

Greenish yellow in color - almost Riesling-like in robe. Somewhat backward nose - neutral, and slow to open. Swirling brings out a note of acidity and spice with a touch of peach. Very clean, flinty chardonnay - characteristic of the region. Medium, cleansing finish - exactly what one would expect from a better Premier Cru. Excellent expression of the Chablis and good value to boot.

Founded in 1959, William Fèvre owns the largest array of Grands Crus Vineyards (15.2 hectares) and benefits from ideal conditions  to produce excellent Chablis. A category leader in the US, William Fèvre Domaine wines are farmed organically and biodynamically. Imported in the U.S. by Maisons and Domaines Henriot Americas along with sister Houses Champagne Henriot, Bouchard Pere and Fils (Burgundy) Chateau de Poncie (Fleurie) and Beaux Freres (Oregon). 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

Pale color. Iodiney shellfish scents complemented by wet stone on the nose. Then big, suave, full and rich, with grand cru size and volume and uncompromising dryness. Wonderfully minerally and pure if a bit youthfully strict today. Combines great ri... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2006 Fevre, Domaine William Chablis Fourchaume Vignoble de Vaulorent Premier Cru 1500ml
