97Vinous / IWC

...melds together rich fruit with saline, mineral-drenched intensity. White flowers, mint, white pepper and crushed rocks add tremendous lift to this striking, utterly captivating Chablis. A wine of superb classicism, the Preuses has it all.

96James Suckling

There’s such beautifully focused limes and green mangoes on the nose here with a very flinty edge that lends a very pure and precise-edged tone. The palate follows in with a strikingly concentrated feel and a long, white-peach core that holds straight and fresh. Breathtaking.

94The Wine Advocate

...lovely bouquet of citrus blossom, mandarin, oyster shell and wet stones... On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and elegantly glossy, with incisive acids, fine-boned structure and a precise, elegantly mineral finish.

91Wine Spectator

A clean, lemon-flavored version, this features a supple texture, with well-integrated acidity and a mineral element garnishing the finish.

17Jancis Robinson

Freshly sliced apple, a touch of salinity and fleshy dairy characters. Shows the volume of grand cru without sacrificing the precision and minerality of Chablis – very nicely done.


William Fevre

Domaine William Fevre is a 120-acre domaine in Chablis, Burgundy.

The estate has Grand Cru parcels in Bougros, Les Clos, Grenouilles, Les Preuses, Valmur and Vaudesir, as well as premier cru parcels. In 1998 when William Fevre retired the domaine was sold to Henriot Champagne, already the proprietors of Bouchard Pere et Fils. Burgundy writer Clive Coates notes that when it was sold “it was first class operation then; it is even better now….This is a classy setup, producing very classy wines.” There is also a William Fevre negociant.
