2019 William Fevre Chablis Les Clos 1.50L
2019 William Fevre Chablis Les Clos 1.50L This is the largest and most famous Grand Cru; its fame is based on its history as one of Chablis’ first vineyards. The appellation enjoys a southerly aspect with very white, dense and deep clay soil, resting on a limestone bed 80 cm below the ground, which brings to the wine those spicy notes so typical of this terroir. Remarkably complex bouquet, blending fruity, floral and spicy notes with a substantial mineral touch. Structured palate, opening up with age to give powerful, generous wines. Pair with fish, shellfish and other seafood, grilled or in a cream sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.
The steep, rocky slopes that extend to the right and left bank of the river Serein are the birthplace to a history which spans over one hundred and fifty million years. This is where the unique Kimmeridgian terroir, alternating marl and marly limestone, embues Chablis with minerality and great freshness. These are vinous characteristics, envied and often imitated around the world, but never matched.
Over the centuries, despite the phylloxera tragedy in the late 19th century, Chablis has grown in reputation and built on its natural assets to become one of Burgundy’s great vineyards.
