Growers since the 1700s in some of the best 1er and Grand Cru parcels of Chablis, the Fèvre family has the pedigree, education (Natalie, Giles, and daughter Julie are all enologists), and passion to make brilliant white Burgundy.
Certified, sustainable farmers since 2004, the Fèvre family still sells most of their production to some of the greatest estates in Chablis, the family being long renowned for producing fantastic fruit.
Nathalie, Gille’s wife, was Chief Enologist at La Chablisienne. After marrying, in 2003, they decided to start estate-bottling with Gilles in the vineyard and Nathalie in the cellar. I’m doing my best to get them to release a bit more wine to the export market, but here’s your first crack at an under-the-radar white Burgundy star in the making…
Their newly released Chablis AC 2022 soars from the glass, redolent of green apple and citrus cream. The fruit is generous, and expansive on the palate with layer upon layer that just gets better with air. The finish is a mile long, with just great tension, speaking to Fèvre family’s old vine holdings in the chalky limestone of Fontenay-Près-Chablis.
