A personal selection and recommendation from our founder today -
"This is the first Burgundy domaine that I visited – William Fevre. I still remember that day in 2010 vividly. I was in Chablis and it was early in the morning when I stopped by William Fevre and knocked on the door. I was welcomed into a well-established tasting room and was introduced to the whole line-up from this excellent Domaine with complete explanations of every “terroir” in Chablis. I was first offered a few Premier Crus and then led by the Les Clos 2010 which absolutely took my breath away! An expressive and complex Chablis that I have never experienced, with layers of yellow fruits as well as a pleasant touch of oak. I could never forget the richness that minerals can give to a wine."
The 2010 has been awarded with 97pts by Allen Meadows, a brilliant Chablis to compete with the top domaine such as Dauvissat and Raveneau, and possibly the best price vs quality Burgundy white. Happy to have secured this so you, our fellow Burgundy lovers, can taste this too! These can arrive before Christmas so if you are planning to have some shellfish or turkey at your festive dinners, you should consider this -

An exceptionally fresh and intensely floral nose also offers up notes of lime, lemon, stone and iodine that are trimmed in a discreet touch of wood. There is massive richness to the concentrated and big-bodied flavors that are breathtakingly powerful and intense, all wrapped in a palate drenching and extraordinarily long finish. As impressive as all of these characteristics are, it's the sheer depth of underlying material that is almost hard to believe. Like the Preuses and the Valmur, this is a 'wow' wine that should develop for at least a decade though because of all of the dry extract, it will be approachable much sooner. In a word, brilliant.
