2018 Simonnet-Febvre Chablis 1Er Cru Cote De Lechet
Founded in 1840, Maison Simonnet-Febvre owns vineyards in Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru Mont de Milieu and Chablis Grand Cru Preuses. It is a traditional Chablis winery amongst the oldest in the area. Bought by Maison Louis Latour in 2003, it is nowadays led by Paul Espitalié who managed to inspire a new dynamic while keeping its independence by running it as a separate enterprise with its own house style.
Nowadays Simonnet-Febvre produces a wide range of wines expressing the different terroirs of Chablis. Maison Simonnet-Febvre’s style is asserted with the same conviction throughout the whole range of wines, from our famous Saint-Bris to our outstanding Chablis Grand Cru “Les Clos”.
We carry on our historical legacy by being the only winery in Chablis to produce a range of Crémants de Bourgogne. Owning 15 hectares of vineyards in the Auxois area which is halfway between Chablis and Beaune, Simonnet-Febvre is trying to restore the former grandeur to this once glorious terroir of Burgundy.
Our old buildings in Chablis and our modern winery in Chitry-le-Fort enable us to fully express the unique character of the vineyards of Chablis while preserving traditions from over a century ago.
