William Fèvre | Chablis, France

The World of Fine Wine

From Kemmeridgian soils, with just a 10% touch of oak, then back into stainless steel to keep freshness. A model Chablis, merging fruit definition, energy, and minerality; linear, saline, vertical.

Vinous

Oyster-shell reduction and a note of lime on the classic Chablis nose. Dense, juicy and firm, boasting excellent definition to its flavors of oyster shell, lime and white flowers. Penetrating but not aggressive in spite of its firm acidity, finishing with excellent subtle length and grip. This terrific village wine is an exceptional value--but make sure you get the Domaine bottling.

View From the Cellar

The “estate bottling” of Chablis villages from William Fèvre is even a step up from the very lovely Champs Royaux in 2015. The bouquet is deeper and more refined, wafting from the glass in a mélange of lime, green apple, a touch of oyster shell, chalky soil and fruit blossoms. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very nicely balanced, with a good core, fine focus and impressive length and grip on the vibrant and nascently complex finish. This is really a serious example of AC Chablis this year!

Wine Enthusiast

Subtle zestiness insinuates itself on the subtle cornmeal notes of this wine's nose. More air reveals fresh green-pear peel. The palate comes in with ripeness and pervasive citrus freshness. Bright and juicy, the wine has gentle but zesty concentration and fresh resonance. -- Anne Krebiehl MW

"This is really bright and clear with sliced apple, pear and stone. Some chalk, too. It’s linear and tight. Pretty length and freshness. Drink now."

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros "Côte Bouguerots" Domaine 2014

October 2015

93-96

Once again, based on the nose alone, this could be nothing else but Chablis with its mélange of tidal pool, mineral reduction, citrus blossom and discreet spice nuances. There is fantastic detail to the focused, mineral-driven and powerful middle weight plus flavors that do a slow build from the mid-palate all the way back to the explosively long, balanced and bone dry finish. This too should amply reward longer-term cellaring but be approachable after only 6 to 8. In a word, wonderful.

Wine Advocate

The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Côte de Bouguerots was the standout wine when I tasted the range of William Fèvre from barrel. Now in bottle, the nose has closed down, but there remains a brooding intensity here and superb minerality. The palate is very well balanced with a touch of orange zest and quince on the entry. There is a keen line of acidity here and quite a powerful finish that lingers long in the mouth.

Wine Spectator

On the austere side, this white exhibits flavors of green apple, lemon and grass, with hints of stone. Racy and firm, with a mouthwatering essence.

Vinous

Bright, pale yellow-green. Precise aromas of lemon, lime and oyster shell, plus a note of mineral reduction. In the mouth, a sexy toasty nuance complements the ripe stone fruit and saline mineral flavors. Nicely pliant wine but also boasts very good inner-mouth tension and purity. Finishes tactile and long, showing very little impact of the vintage. Superb.

Lemon butter and almond pastry from time spent in four- to six-year-old barrels. Sweetly fragrant white flowers and a fine minerally thread. This makes a very composed, fresh and sleek impression on the palate. Long and slightly fleshy white-peach finish.
