"The 2017 Chablis has a tightly-wound, flinty bouquet with just a faint hint of pressed white flowers. The palate is well balanced with a slither of bitter lemon on the entry, modest weight with a strict and linear, saline finish. Very classic in style, this Chablis should be broached over the next six or seven years." (VM)

"This has plenty of ripe rich fruit with an array of lime curd, peaches, apricots and mangoes. The palate is packed with flesh and very succulent smooth and creamy peaches and apricots. A lot to like here. Drink on release." (JS)

"A slightly fresher nose speaks of mineral reduction, apple and soft floral scents. There is a lovely sense of energy to the attractively textured, rich and delicious middle weight flavors that possess much better depth and persistence. One to consider." (BH)

"The better of Fèvre's two Chablis cuvées - the other one is a négociant blend - this very lightly wooded cuvée comes mostly from old-vine parcels and is commendably reliable. Pear and boiled sweet notes segue into a fresh, sappy, tapering palate." (DM)

Winery Notes:
Combining lovely fruitiness with an attractive freshness and characteristic minerality, Chablis is a wine region with global renown. Domaine William Fèvre’s vineyards sit on Kimmeridgian subsoil and enjoy ideal exposures for the production of a very fine wine.

Very fresh bouquet with notes of citrus and white fleshed-fruit. Fresh and supple, the wine is marked by mineral notes that are typical of the appellation.

Food and wine pairing:
Fish dishes, grilled or in a light sauce; various seafood, oysters and sushis.
