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.

  • William Fevre Champs Royaux Chablis 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Being a fan of William Fevre Premier and Grand Cru (they tend to have more drive and presence than most Chablis - except at the highest level of price and quality), I wanted to compare this product with la Chablisienne - in particular. The nose is attractive - with lime and apple dominant. Attack has good acidity and balance with a touch of oak... Read More

  • William Fevre Champs Royaux Chablis 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Had this at lunch at Ocean Prime in Dallas. A typical, but in a very good way, French Chablis. Citrus with a bright acidity and pleasant minerality, a bit of spice, and a slight bit of oak. Very well balanced with a long smooth finish. Would definitely consider this as a daily drinker. Read More

  • William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru les Preuses 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This feminine and minerally wine has an impressive potential to keep well though its enticing today. Harmony and persistence give this wine clear focus. It is impressively floral, lemony and chalky with notes of sea salt. Those that unilaterally dismiss larger operations are missing out on some most impressive wines chez Fèvre. 95 pts Read More
