    Manual, in small cases (holding up to maximum 13kg), with the systematic use of a sorting table. 

    VINIFICATION 
    Use of the principle of gravity so as to avoid all pumping, which could harm the quality of the wine. 
    • Brief (1½-2 hours) pneumatic pressing to obtain a gentle separation of the solid and liquid of the grape. 
    • Very light static settling of the juice to preserve enough fine lees so that the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations can occur naturally.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Powerful nose, combining aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruit with a mineral note typical of the appellation. Rich and concentrated, the palate has remarkable freshness and length

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • One of the greatest domaines in Chablis. Founded by William Fevre in 1957, its vineyard holdings include 12 hectares of premier cru and 16 hectares of grand Cru vines. The domaines fruit is harvested by hand, a rarity in Chablis, and rigorously sorted at the winery to ensure the highest quality. In recent times the amount of new oak used has been cut back and today the average age of the barrels in the cellar is five years. From the Petit Chablis to the domaines six Grand Cru wines, the quality is superb and the range from Domaine William Fevre is a benchmark for the wines of the region.
