Description

"Fèvre has three parcels in Montée de Tonnerre (its purest, most mineral premier cru): Chapelot, Pied d'Aloup and Côte de Bréchain, all facing different ways. Very precise, crystalline fruits, salinity, great acidity and a long, long finish. Will age beautifully, but great now. Drinking Window 2022 - 2028."
95/100, Andy Howard MW Decanter, (10/2021)

"Domaine Fèvre’s 2020 Montée de Tonnerre is another excellent young premier cru. The bouquet is bright, complex and piercing in its precision, jumping from the glass in a mix of apple, pear, tart orange, gorgeously complex, salty minerality, citrus peel and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is racy, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a great girdle of acidity, superb mineral drive and cut and a very long, complex and youthful finish. Great juice in the making. (Drink between 2027-2065)"
94/100, John Gilman, (11/2021)

"The 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre is a terrific success, unfurling in the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers, confit citrus and oatmeal. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and complete, it's fleshy and seamless, with fine depth at the core, racy acids and a long, expansive finish. After several years where this site bore the brunt of hail and frost, Montée de Tonnerre is back with a vengeance. The 2020 vintage makes the first year of official organic conversion for 78-hectare Domaine William Fèvre, though it's actually the 15th year the estate has been practicing organic. Didier Séguier reported that the year's challenges were twofold: having to pick harvest dates with unerring precision, and the necessity to sort out sunburnt grapes. The results, however, are once again exceptional, and it's hard to think of any of Chablis's larger estates that can match Fèvre for consistency and quality across the board. The 2020s, as ever bottled under Diam, are certainly built to evolve gracefully, but they will also show their cards sooner than the spectacular but hyper-concentrated 2019s."
94/100, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, (7/2021)
