William Fevre Chablis Champs Royaux 2012

William Fevre Chablis Champs Royaux 2012

Sku: 042693

William Fèvre, whose family has lived in the Chablis region for more than 250 years, began making wine in 1959 with 7 hectares of vineyard. Today, the estate is one of the biggest in Chablis with over 51 hectares of vineyards sitting on mineral-rich Kimmeridgian soil, more than half of which are Premier Cru and Grand Cru. The domaine uses older barrels with an average age of 6 years in lieu of new oak to preserve freshness and minerality and to enable the subtle nuances of Chablis’ terroirs to fully express themselves. The wines of William Fèvre show aromatic purity and express the unique characteristics of each vintage. 

The 2012 Chablis “Champs Royaux” has a clean, elegant bouquet of citrus, green apple and delicate floral aromas with beautiful crystal minerality emerging on the palate. Bone dry and refreshing, this is the ideal partner for oysters, shellfish, grilled seafood and summer salads and vegetable dishes. 
— Bart, 67Wine Buyer

Vintage:2012 - Alan Meadows, BurgHound: "A very fresh nose combines notes of sea breeze, iodine, green fruit and citrus nuances. There a racy and intense mouth feel to the detailed middle weight flavors that terminate in a somewhat curious finish of grapefruit and a subtle warmth, which is an odd combination."

Vintage: 2012 - Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "Lemon oil, grapefruit and white flowers jump from the glass in the 2012 Chablis Champs Royaux (Maison). Surprisingly rich almost to the point of being oily in texture, the 2012 is a great example of the style of the year in Chablis."

Wine maker notes
Champ Royaux Chablis has a very fresh bouquet with notes of citrus and whitefleshed fruit, with a very slightly oaky finish. Fresh and supple, the wine is marked by mineral notes that are typical of the appellation.
