About the Wine
Nathalie and Gilles Fevre come from the prestigious Fevre family who have been stalwarts in the Chablis region since 1745. The name Fevre is synonymous with high-quality Chablis. The majority of Nathalie and Gilles vineyards are located northeast of the Chablis Grand Cru hill along with holdings in the Grand Cru Les Preuses, along with the 1er Cru vineyards Fourchaume and Mont de Milieu. Their state-of-the-art, gravity-flow winery produces top-flight Chablis with racing acidity, immense depth, and texture. Discover the beauty of the Fevre family's most underrated family members.
Chablis is loved by wine geeks and everyday drinkers alike for its characteristic minerality and finesse. Chablis' distinct terroir is due to a unique soil type found only in Chablis, Champagne, and southern England called Kimmeridgian. An ancient soil, 180 million-year-old to be exact, made up of clay and limestone that contains fossilized oyster shells. These fossilized sea-creatures are attributed to Chablis being such an excellent pairing for oysters and fresh seafood. In addition to the minerality, Chablis is known for its incredible structure and mouthwatering salinity. If you haven't had the pleasure of falling in love with Chablis yet, what are you waiting for?
Domaine Fevre comes from parcels situated beside the village of Fontenay-Près-Chablis. On high plains and steep hills with an average vine age of 25 years old. Some parcels that were planted by Gilles’ great grandfather, Marcel, in the 1950s still remain to this day. Marcel along with Gilles’ father both held the position of President at the leading cooperative La Chablisienne. The family has had a knack for producing high-quality wine for generations.
Chablis has been plagued with hail and other weather challenges in recent vintages causing loss of yields and skyrocketing prices. 2014 however was a fantastic vintage that received a 97 point rating from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
Aging: 10 months sur lees in stainless steel
Tasting Notes: 100% Chardonnay. The nose is fresh and fruity with notes of white peach, pear, granite, and citrus. The palate is fresh and vibrant, showing good minerality. A lovely aperitif, or pair with oysters, shellfish, and grilled fish, but also with traditional Burgundy recipes.
