Product Overview

The Fèvre family has resided in the Chablis region for over 250 years and, following in his father’s footsteps, William Fèvre began making fine wine in 1959. Domaine Fèvre has a longstanding reputation for its commitment to making exceptional, terroir-driven wines. Having taken over the Domaine in 1998, the Henriot family has continued the Fèvre family’s legacy. Domaine William Fèvre has obtained some of Chablis’ best vineyard sites and is devoted to creating rich, expressive wines and showing the slight differences between these sites. The 2009 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Montee de Tonnerre comes to us from their esteemed Montee de Tonnerre Premier Cru site; the Fèvre’s have holdings in some of the most prominent Chablis Premier Crus. The beauty and finesse of Domaine William Fèvre’s wine is a product of unique terroirs, the mineral-rich vineyards where the Chardonnay grapes are grown, along with the meticulous care that goes into crafting each wine.

International Wine Cellars (IWC) Review

IWC 90-93
Light green-tinged yellow. Pure, nuanced nose hints at stone fruits, ginger, cumin and silex Dense, spicy and sweet; concentrated, broad and mouthfilling but with a lovely light touch for the year. Nothing hard about this premier cru. Really saturates the palate on the aftertaste.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 92
The 2009 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre comes across as rich, round and pretty. Smoky and minerally at first, the fruit blossoms on the mid-palate and then truly gains dimension on the big finish. Expressive white stone fruits and flowers linger on the close. It is a wine of notable complexity and pedigree. This is two-thirds Chapelots and one-third Pied d'Aloup, vinified separately. The south facing Chapelots, on the lower slope of the hill, is richer in fruit while the east to southeast facing Pied d'Aloup is more aromatically complex, mineral and fresh. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

Burghound/Allen Meadows (BH) Review

BH 91-93
This is markedly more complex and more elegant as well with an expressive nose of white flower, citrus and pear nuances that precede the rich, full-bodied, powerful and serious flavors that do not lose precision or focus on the impressively long finish. This is very Zen-like as the sense of harmony is really lovely.
