2018 Domaine William Fevre Chablis

SKU #1473313 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This offers plenty of fruit and a deeply fleshy texture on the palate. The nose is all melon, peaches and limes and the palate has such juicy and fleshy texture, combined with a flash of bright, refreshing acidity, holding melon, pears and white peaches fresh and long. A concentrated and delicious AC from Fèvre in 2018. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A touch of reduction blends in with a hint of lanolin on this wine’s subtle nose. The palate adds zestiness to a rounded, smooth and harmonious mix of pear fruit, citrus and chalkiness. It finishes bright and fresh. (AK) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Domaine Fevre owns just under 47ha designated as AC Chablis. Aged for 10-12 months in stainless steel, with a small proportion matured in aged oak barrels for 4-6 months, this Chablis carries much more weight and concentration, with plenty of firm acidity from the ripe, forward 2018 vintage. On the palate, bright lemon fruit is combined with savoury notes of flint and pebbles. A Chablis which manages to combine both freshness and complexity. Attractive and, relatively, early drinking. (AH) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is rich and ripe, offering peach, honey and lemon flavors. Turns bracing and compact, with a long, minerally finish. Could benefit from short-term cellaring. (BS) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

90 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The Domaine bottling of Chablis AC is always a small step up from the Champs Royaux and the 2018 version is no exception to this rule! This is first class villages, jumping from the glass in a vibrant blend of pear, lemon, refined minerality, white flowers and a touch of the beeswax to come with bottle age. On the palate the wine is bright, precise and full, with a lovely core, superb backend mineral drive and a long, complex and snappy finish. This really has good cut for the vintage! Inner quote mark (1/2020)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chablis (Domaine) is beautifully layered, perfumed and expressive. White flowers, mint and orchard fruit all grace this silky, inviting Chablis from Fèvre. The Chablis emerges from a mix of 46 hectares of vineyards with an average age of 50 years. A touch of oak (5-7%, all neutral) adds a shade of complexity. In this rich vintage, the village Chablis is especially fine. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here a slightly cooler nose is otherwise similar to the Champs Royaux. By contrast there is better complexity to the delicious and attractively vibrant medium-bodied flavors that possess a caressing but punchy mouth feel, all wrapped in a clean, dry, focused and moderately firm finale. This too could easily be enjoyed young though I would be inclined to hold it for at least a few years first. *Outstanding, Top Value* Inner quote mark (10/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Scents of citrus oil, green pear, dried white flowers, bread dough and oyster shells introduce the 2018 Chablis Villages, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive wine built around lively acids and chalky dry extract. Fulfilling the promise it showed a year ago, this has turned out nicely and has a bright future ahead of it. (WK) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

K&L Notes

90 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Chablis Beauroy 1er Cru is subtle on the nose, a little coaxing revealing beeswax and light passion fruit notes. The palate is lively on the entry, featuring tropical notes such as guava and again, passion fruit. A touch of dried honey appears toward the somewhat extravagant but appealing finish. This will be difficult to resist in its youth." (9/2020) Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Bottled in April. Pale colour with light green tint. This is very classic William Fèvre, offering noticeably more weight than the Petit Chablis. There is a significant volume of fruit on the palate with enough density, quite easily accessible but with the right saline acidity to finish. Very good length. Excellent textbook Chablis."
