Tasting Notes

A sleeper of the vintage, Fèvre's 2019 Chablis Village opens in the glass with notes of citrus oil, white flowers, crisp green apple and oyster shell. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and chiseled, it's taut and concentrated, with racy acids and a long, chalky finish. Produced from some 40 hectares of vineyards, averaging around 50 years old, this was cropped at yields of 43 hectoliters per hectare. Unusually intense and structured, readers willing to give this cuvée a bit of bottle age will be rewarded.

Score: 91

From 50 year old vines, with a yield of 46 hl/ha in 2019. Pale lime green. The Domaine version of William Fèvre Chablis offers a classical nose, leaner than, some, yet with intensity on the palate., some of the iodine character is present, but strong fresh citrus fruit too. Exceptional length. Lemongrass acidity.

Score: 88 - 90

Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy 31 July 2020

The 2019 Chablis Village is vibrant on the nose with a very faint menthol touch that wisely stays in the background. The palate is fresh and clean, slightly honeyed on the entry, but it has the acidity to maintain tension and cut through the lemongrass-tinged finish. Quite an involving Chablis Village, it should offer 4–6 years of drinking pleasure.
