Domaine William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons is 100% Chardonnay sourced from William Fevre’s own vineyards which sit on the famous Chablisienne Kimmeridgian subsoil – Chalky clay, marl, and marl-limestone from the Kimmeridgian era (the upper Jurassic geological period, 160-140 million years ago).
Domaine William Fevre was founded in 1957 by William Fevre when he began with around 17 acres of vineyards but soon expanded acquiring both 1er Cru and Grand Cru Chablis vineyard sites. Fevre himself retired in 1998 and the Domaine was sold to Champagne Henriot. The current winemaker is Didier Seguier who had worked for the Burgundy wine producer Bouchard, who is also owned by Champagne Henriot.
Domaine William Fevre Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons has a pronounced nose of fruit and flowers, with lovely freshness and a few mineral touches. Generous palate, with lovely roundness.
