Winemaker Notes

Powerful nose, combining aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruit with a mineral note typical of the appellation. Rich and concentrated, the palate has remarkable freshness and length.

Pairs well with fish, shellfish and other seafood, grilled or in a cream sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.

D 93
Decanter
Like Montée de Tonnerre, Vaulorent is a brilliantly situated right bank premier cru, picking up the relay where the grands crus of Les Preuses and Bougros ease off. In this warmer vintage, you'll find oranges among the lemons in this wine’s enticing and already articulate scents. The flavour is lavish, rounded and rich by comparison with the more classical 2016s: almond paste, seaweed and spring flowers. Best kept for a little longer, but it’s by no means forbidding if broached soon.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaulorent showed so well when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle, it has a well-defined bouquet with hints of white flower developing in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity. A very pretty Chablis with hints of orange sorbet and dried apricot leading to a precise and classy finish. What a superb Vaulorent—this comes recommended.

Wine Spectator
A core of stony white peach, apple and lemon flavors is wrapped in a fleshy embrace in this sleek white. Vibrant, lingering with a stony element. Drink now through 2024.

Like the Montée de Tonnerre there is plenty of mineral reduction present on the fresh nose of tidal pool, pear and floral scents. The textured, powerful and solidly intense flavors possess good size and weight before concluding in a lemony and notably more persistent finale. This should reward a few years of aging yet be accessible in its youth.

Founded in 1959, Domaine William Fèvre is at the very heart of the Chablis vineyards.

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.
