Although Chablis stalwart William Fèvre may not possess the legendary status of Dauvissat and Raveneau, nor the new-school coolness of the likes of Vocoret or de Moor, its wines are a dependably satisfying entry point to this most northerly of Burgundy appellations.

Established in 1958, Fèvre’s holdings grew rapidly at a time when land was inexpensive. The domaine now has almost 80ha of vineyards to its name, including an impressive range of 1er and Grand Crus covering just about every important site in the region.

Under head winemaker Dider Séguier, everything has been managed organically (with the 1er and Grand Crus farmed using biodynamics) and the entire estate harvested by hand, while new oak has been dialled back in favour of older barrels and stainless steel.

"An ultra-fresh, cool, and admirably pure nose features notes of white flowers, shellfish, pear, mineral reduction, and pungent iodine nuances. There is outstanding volume and intensity to the medium weight plus flavours that deliver beautifully focused power on the palate-coating, mineral-driven and hugely persistent finale." 93 Points, Burghound
