William Fèvre : Chablis 1er cru "Montée de Tonnerre" Domaine 2020

A subtle and rich Chablis Premier Cru wine

The estate

Founded in 1959, the William Fèvre estate has become an essential reference among Chablis wines over the years. This illustrious Burgundian estate joined the Henriot group in 1998.

The William Fèvre estate watches over an exceptional 78-hectare terroir, including 15.9 hectares classified as Premier Cru and 15.2 as Grand Cru. Certified HEV (High Environmental Value) since 2015, this vineyard enhances, through its patchwork of over 90 distinctive plots, all the richness and diversity of the Chablis terroir.

The vineyard

This Chablis Premier Cru "Montée de Tonnerre" Domaine 2020 by William Fèvre is a Chablis wine and stems from a 2.24-hectare vineyard. Facing south-east, south and west, the vines are planted on shallow, stony soils composed mainly of white stones.

The vinification and ageing

Harvested by hand, the grapes are placed in vats using a gravity flow method. A short pneumatic press is followed by a light static settling. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are carried out for 40 to 50% of the must in French oak barrels, 6 years old on average, and in small stainless steel tanks for the remaining grapes. The wine is aged for 13 to 14 months, including 5 to 6 months on fine lees, in the same containers as the fermentation stage.

The blend

Chardonnay (100%).
