Domaine William Fevre
In 2018, Dom. William Fevre's Didier Seguier was awarded the prestigious award 'White Winemaker of the Year' by the International Wine Challenge. Over the last 2 decades, Seguier and his team have taken William Fevre to new heights and seen the domaine become recognised as one of the finest names in Chablis. With their unusually high proportion of Premier and Grand Cru vineyards, we are spoilt for choice.
Bougros, Grand Cru
This Climat lies at the very western end of the Grands Crus area, at altitudes ranging from 130 to 170 m on fairly deep marl and clay terrain with a southwest exposure. On the palate, this appellation’s wines are often very full and rich.
Bougros Cote Bouguerots, Grand Cru
Bougros sits on a very steep slope, with a gradient of more than 30%, facing due south at the foot of the hill. The shallow soil, a mixture of clay and gravel, prevents excessive yields resulting in complex, robust wines.
Les Clos, Grand Cru
This is the largest and most famous Grand Cru; its fame based on its history as one of Chablis’ first vineyards. The appellation enjoys a southerly aspect with very white, dense and deep clay soil, resting on a limestone bed 80 cm below the ground, which brings to the wine those spicy notes so typical of this terroir.
Les Preuses, Grand Cru
Les Preuses is probably taken from the word “Perreuse” (stone), the name given to the ancient Roman road which ran below the current vineyard. Made for ageing thanks to a dense, compact, clay-rich soil resting on a limestone bed.
Valmur, Grand Cru
With its terroir split into two parts on either side of the Sainte Vaubourg fountain path, it has slightly deeper clay-limestone soils than the other Grands Crus. Its shape is reminiscent of a small valley hence the name “Valmur”.
Vaudesir, Grand Cru
Set in the very heart of the Grand Cru area, Vaudesir has a subtle diversity in exposure. Its steep terrain contains more clay than limestone and produces wines of great finesse and elegance.
