William Fevre Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru 2020

William Fevre Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru 2020

$195.00

Fevre’s largest grand cru, with 4ha located higher up in Les Clos, meaning this is cooler climate and with much more chalk than Kimmeridgian. 50% of the vines were planted by William Fevre’s father in the 1940s. Perfect balance between precision, concentration, acidity and ripe fruits, with oak that’s not at all apparent. A fresh, glorious wine.

DOMAIN SURFACE: 4.11 hectares
APPELLATION SURFACE: 26.04 hectares

TASTING NOTE: Remarkably complex bouquet, blending fruity, floral, and spicy notes with a substantial mineral touch. The structured palate, opening up with age to give powerful, generous wines.

KNOW-HOW
HARVEST: manual.
VINIFICATION: Use of the principle of gravity so as to avoid all pumping, which could harm the quality of the wine. Brief (1 - 2 hours) pneumatic pressing to obtain a gentle separation of the solid and liquid parts of the grape. Very light static settling of the juice to preserve enough fine lines so that the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation can occur naturally. The must is run into
French oak barrels (aged of 6 years in average) for 60 to 70% of the harvest. The remainder is vinified in small stainless steel vats.
MATURING: 14 to 15 months, of which 5 to 6 months on fine lees in French oak barrels, for 60 to 70% of the harvest. The end of maturation occurs in small stainless steel vats.
