Winemaker Notes

A structured, lively and mineral wine with good length on the palate. Both straightforward and fresh, with exemplary concentration.

Fish, shellfish and other seafood, grilled or in a cream sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.

JS 94
James Suckling

This has a very fresh and pure lemon nose with iodine, wet-chalk and spiced almond-biscuit notes. The palate has a stunning array of lemons, peaches and grapefruit with a seamless, pastry-like texture and a late, flinty twist to the succulent, grapefruit finish. Drink or hold.

V 93
Vinous

The 2017 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru is a dense, powerful wine that very much shows the low yields of the vintage in its sheer richness. Citrus, floral and savory notes are front and center, but more than anything else, the 2017 stands out for its concentration, power and persistence. This is impressive.

COMMENTARY: The Premier Cru Vineyard Montmains always seems to conduct business as usual; I have often been a fan of this site. The 2017 Domaine William Fèvre Montmains rocks with the best of them. TASTING NOTES: This wine delivers, perhaps without a lot of bells and whistles. Its aromas and flavors of peach fuzz, ripe citrus, and bright minerality should pair it well with Cantonese-style lobster noodles. (Tasted: March 14, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains is showing well, offering up notes of crisp green orchard fruit, white flowers and subtle hints of oyster liquor. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, blocky and chalky, still a little shut down after its recent bottling but with the depth and energy to develop well with a few years in the cellar.
BH 90
Burghound.com
The nose immediately makes this wine's origins clear with its lovely aromas of oyster shell, iodine and green apple-scented aromas. There is an appealing sense of vibrancy to the delicious, intense and super-saline-inflected flavors that contrast considerably with the lavishly rich and somewhat sweet finale. A curious effort as the nose is very Chablis yet the flavors, stylistically speaking, suggest the Mâconnais.
Barrel Sample: 88-90
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Though rich in texture, this white is concentrated and expressive, displaying apple, lemon and mineral flavors, defined by bracing acidity and tailing off on the finish. Drink now through 2024.

Founded in 1959, Domaine William Fèvre is at the very heart of the Chablis vineyards. Since its founding, Domaine William Fèvre has been taken up with the desire to produce indisputable genuine and fine wines, bringing along a very personal experience in Chardonnay.

Today, Domaine William Fèvre is one of the most established and renowned estates in Chablis.

Domaine William Fèvre joined the Henriot family portfolio in 1998.

“In my 20 years with William Fèvre, I have aimed at crafting wines that fully express the terroir of Chablis through the use of organic and biodynamic viticulture and meticulous care in the vineyards. Minerality is a Chablis trademark and it shines through with a thousand nuances in each of our wines.” – Didier Séguier, William Fèvre Director & Cellar Master

The source of the most racy, light and tactile, yet uniquely complex Chardonnay, Chablis, while considered part of Burgundy, actually reaches far past the most northern stretch of the Côte d’Or proper. Its vineyards cover hillsides surrounding the small village of Chablis about 100 miles north of Dijon, making it actually closer to Champagne than to Burgundy. Champagne and Chablis have a unique soil type in common called Kimmeridgian, which isn’t found anywhere else in the world except southern England. A 180 million year-old geologic formation of decomposed clay and limestone, containing tiny fossilized oyster shells, spans from the Dorset village of Kimmeridge in southern England all the way down through Champagne, and to the soils of Chablis. This soil type produces wines full of structure, austerity, minerality, salinity and finesse.

Chablis Grands Crus vineyards are all located at ideal elevations and exposition on the acclaimed Kimmeridgian soil, an ancient clay-limestone soil that lends intensity and finesse to its wines. The vineyards outside of Grands Crus are Premiers Crus, and outlying from those is Petit Chablis. Chablis Grand Cru, as well as most Premier Cru Chablis, can age for many years.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
