En Primeur | William Fevre

William Fèvre is one of the great names of Chablis, however, in comparison to many estates in the region, William himself was a relative newcomer. He produced his first crop in 1959 and swiftly built up the estate to have substantial holdings in the town of Chablis. By 1998, the year that Champagne legend Joseph Henriot purchased the domaine, it had grown to 48 hectares. During his life, Joseph Henriot further expanded the estate, so today it owns 78 hectares of vineyards, including 16 hectares of 1ers Crus and 15 hectares of Grands Crus.

Under the careful direction of technical director Didier Séguier, William Fèvre is a superb example of how big can be beautiful. The vineyard management for the village wines is organic and the 1ers Crus and Grands Crus vineyards have been biodynamic since 2020. Ensuring his wines embody true terroir style is hugely important to Didier. He avoids new oak for ageing and counts his blessings that sister winery, Bouchard Père & Fils in Beaune, is an unlimited source of 2–5-year casks for maturation of his Chablis. He describes his 2020s as: “a little bit of magic”, so we could not have chosen a better year to welcome William Fèvre to the Goedhuis portfolio of Burgundy estates.
