  • Goedhuis, January 2024

    This highly prized site neighbours the seven Grands Crus vineyards. Fèvre owns three plots amounting to 2 hectares, with the oldest parcel near Blanchot planted in 1936. A very confident wine with a brooding structure. The warmer characters of the year appear with a combination of fresh lemon and white nectarine. Its layered intensity and broad earthy structure result in a powerful and concentrated wine with excellent aging prospects.

  • Burghound, October 2023, Score: 92-94

    An elegant, pure and wonderfully airy nose more freely reflects its aromas of white flowers, prominent mineral reduction and plenty of seashore elements. There is at once more volume but, somewhat surprisingly, even better refinement to the medium weight plus flavors that retain excellent detail while also flashing an almost pungent stoniness on the driving, firm and impeccably well-balanced finale. One to look for as this is very impressive. Drink 2030+

  • Vinous, September 2023, Score: 89-91

    The 2022 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru is more reticent on the nose and perhaps doesn't quite engage as the 2021 did last year. A bit bashful at the moment. The palate is well-balanced with a saline entry, though it feels strict and contained, without the flair demonstrated by the Les Lys at the moment. Has this got something up its sleeve? It's a bit too austere and reticent for my liking. (Drinking 2025-2038)

  • Decanter, December 2023, Score: 95

    A stunning example, with finesse allied to power. Real tension and energy here. Will be approachable quite young, but really should be aged for over five years for the best result. Fèvre has 2.24ha within Montée de Tonnerre. Plots are located in Pied d'Aloup (facing east) with profound Kimmeridgian soils bringing freshness, Chapelot facing south on deep soil adding richness, and Côte de Brechain facing west on top of the hill with the oldest plots dating back to 1936.

  • Jasper Morris MW, June 2023, Score: 93-95

    5 Star Wine. From multiple plots: east facing kimmeridgian marl in Pied d’Aloue (0.50ha), one hectare in Chapelot, (more soil here, fatter wine), then the rest in Bréchain, where vines dating back to 1936, give tension. What a beautiful bouquet. This has the sensual aspect of a delightful sunny summer, yet with an entrancing freshness behind. This is quintessential right bank, yet with balance Drink from 2027-2037. Tasted: June 2023.

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.
