Founded in 1959, William Fèvre owns the largest array of Grands Crus Vineyards (15.2 hectares) and benefits from ideal conditions  to produce excellent Chablis. A category leader in the US, William Fèvre Domaine wines are farmed organically and biodynamically. Imported in the U.S. by Maisons and Domaines Henriot Americas along with sister Houses Champagne Henriot, Bouchard Pere and Fils (Burgundy) Chateau de Poncie (Fleurie) and Beaux Freres (Oregon).

The history of wine-making in Chablis goes back to 865 AD with the development of vineyards by the monks of Saint-Martin-de-Tours on slopes facing the Serein River that cuts through that village. At that time and for the centuries that followed, the Chablis wine trade grew substantially thanks to the waterways that made it possible to supply Paris from Auxerre. With the French Revolution, estates changed hands but remained successful, and the total vineyard surface area reached 38,000 hectares. The end of the 19th century saw the coming Read more »

  • 1 Case of Domaine William Fevre Chablis les Preuses Grand Cru Ib 2006


    A piquant nose with sour apple, clove and licorice notes. There is a hint of freshly fallen snow as well. The attack is acidic, but rounding out nicely; in 2 years this wine will be stunning. Drinking well with salty, granite and subtle mineral-like flavors mid-palate. A fabulous wine to keep through 2012. Read More

  • William Fevre Chablis Premiere Cru Fourchaume Chablis Chablis Premier Cru France Burgundy 2006


    Greenish yellow in color - almost Riesling-like in robe. Somewhat backward nose - neutral, and slow to open. Swirling brings out a note of acidity and spice with a touch of peach. Very clean, flinty chardonnay - characteristic of the region. Medium, cleansing finish - exactly what one would expect from a better Premier Cru. Excellent expres... Read More
