William Fèvre is one of Chablis’ greatest wine domaines, developed by the eponymous William Fèvre between 1957 and his retirement in 1998 when he sold to the Champagne House Joseph Henriot. Fèvre is unique since he owns land in six out of the seven grand crus. Only Blanchot is missing. It also owns substantial parts of historic premier crus: Montée de Tonnerre, Fourchaume, Montmains and Les Lys.
The entrance to Domaine William Fèvre is filled with Chablis bottles. Spanish Chablis, Chablis from California, Australian and Argentinean Chablis. It is a reminder that this small part of northern Burgundy created a style of wine that became a cliché around the world.
