Domaine William Fevre

With more than 50 hectares of vines throughout Chablis, including an astounding 15 hectares of grands crus, William Fevre is arguably the most prominent and important maker in Chablis.  Since 1998 the domaine has been owned by Champagne giant Henriot (which also owns Bouchard Pere et Fils in Burgundy) yet despite 'corporate' ownership, quality is exceptionally high, with William Fevre today considered one of the four or five best producers of Chablis.spring-vine.jpg

Wood is used for both fermentations and elevage, but virtually entirely older oak rather than new, and as such, minimal flavour is imparted upon the wines.  Stainless steel tanks are also employed extensively in both the fermentation and ageing periods.  Batonnage is not used at all, in an effort to preserve and highlight each individual wine's distinct terroir.

In addition to their large domaine holdings, William Fevre also purchases and produces a sizeable amount of fruit each year for the entry-level 'Petit Chablis'.
