Chardonnay Chablis France
William Fevre came from a long line of great winemakers. William founded the Domaine de la Maladiere and announced his first harvest in 1959.

In 1998 the venerable Henriot of Champagne acquired the estate. Today, Domaine William Fevre releases a wide range of indisputably fine Chablis, highly prized for their expression of the most subtle variations within the grand Cru of Chablis.

The success that Chablis has enjoyed over the centuries is due in no small part to the extreme variations of temperature. Also critical to their distinct character is the marriage between Chardonnay and local terroir. A matrimony of rich fruit and effulgent minerality, the wines express themselves in four appellations, Petit Chablis being the tinyest at 650 hectares. Grapes are hand picked and put in small crates, the bunches are rigorously sorted out, pressings are short, the must carefully settled and a fine balance is established according to the vintage for the balance of vinification between vat and cask. The proportion of new oak is kept at a minimum to avoid dampening the subtle variations of terroir.
Pale straw hue. Fruity and floral bouquets, great freshness and lovely mineral notes, hazelnuts and hay. Magic in the wine's ability to express the uniqueness of Chablis, flavours flow freely onto the palate, long dry flinty fruit, lean and crisp. A light bodied and lively wine, inimitably suited to the best seafood, especially oysters.
