  • Neal Martin, June 2021, Score: 91-93

    The 2020 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru comes from 10 parcels scattered mainly over the top of the hill. It has a well-defined, crisp and (for the vintage) quite austere nose due to the location higher up the slope. The fresh palate is nicely detailed with lime and lemon thyme and good salinity. Quite strict on the mineral-driven finish. Good potential, but it will need time.

  • Wine Advocate, July 2022, Score: 96

    The 2020 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is another brilliant effort from Fèvre's immensely able winemaker, Didier Seguier, and his team. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of confit citrus, fresh bread, oyster shell, orange zest and crisp orchard fruit, it's full-bodied, satiny and muscular, with a concentrated, tensile profile and a long, intensely saline finish. It's the broadest and most powerful wine in the range, while remaining quintessentially Chablisien.

  • Jancis Robinson, January 2022, Score: 17.5++

    Very old vines here that were planted in the 1940s and 1950s. This is the largest grand cru with 27 ha. BPF own 4 ha and are therefore the largest producer. 50% of their eight plots were planted by William's father, on top of hill. Stony, with limestone dominating and less clay. Deep roots. Early maturing and always harvested in first half of the harvest. The yield was quite a generous 40 hl/ha. 40% of the wine was vinified in barrel. Intense nose – more so than the Preuses or Bougros. Solid concentration and obviously a long life with good acidity. A real mouthful in which the fruit just about matches the astringency but it would be shame to drink it too young…

  • Jasper Morris MW, May 2023, Score: 96

    Clear pale lemon yellow with some green reflections. Pure crisp and backward on the nose. The limestone shines through more than the sunshine. This is very classical, with a most refreshing acidity, and a beautiful length of aftertaste, this grows impressively in the glass. Really beautifully poised and very classic.

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.

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.Read less

Region

Chablis

Chablis is world famous for its fine white wines produced from the Chardonnay grape. The best vineyards are perched above the winding Serein river and are south or southwest facing ensuring better ripeness in this cooler climate. It has four appellation levels. Petit Chablis is the most modest and simple followed by Chablis, which is the largest and most prominent. Premier cru Chablis is the third largest appellation and encompasses almost 40 different climats or vineyards including the famed Montée de Tonnerre, Fourchaumes and Mont de Milieu. The most noble of all Chablis are the grand crus of which there are 7 climats in total Bougros, Les Preuses, Vaudésir, Grenouilles, Valmur, Les Clos and Blanchot. The wines of Chablis have remained some of the best value in the world, particularly their superb grand crus which can easily cost 50% less than its closest revered white grand cru neighbour, Corton Charlemagne.
