2020 Domaine William Fevre Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre Domaine

Fèvre has three parcels in Montée de Tonnerre (its purest, most mineral premier cru): Chapelot, Pied d'Aloup and Côte de Bréchain, all facing different ways. Very precise, crystalline fruits, salinity, great acidity and a long, long finish. Will age beautifully, but great now. Read more

Neal Martin - Vinous

The 2020 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru comes from three parcels that include the estate’s oldest vines, planted in 1936. It is strict and linear on the nose, the most backward of the Premier Crus, but very minerally and stern. The palate is well balanced, citric and mineral-driven. Classic Chablis with an austere but beautifully focused finish that will repay cellaring. Excellent.

Tasting Notes

Complex bouquet with floral and fruity aromas, and intense mineral notes. Structured palate in its youth, becoming more subtle and elegant and developing ripe fruit notes.

Winemakers Note

With a geological structure similar to the Grands Crus and excellent exposure, this terroir is considered one of the best Premiers Crus. The wine is both full and rich yet can also show its mineral and floral characteristics.
