  • Petit Chablis 2018, Gilles et Nathalie Fèvre 12% vol, 75cl

    Petit Chablis 2018, Gilles et Nathalie Fèvre 12% vol, 75cl

    WB17

    Gilles and Nathalie Fèvre met at university where they both qualified as oenologists. Gilles’ great grandfather began growing grapes and making wine in and around the village of Fontenay-Près-Chablis over a hundred years ago.

     

    Today, they own 40 hectares of vines – all planted on Kimmeridgian limestone – throughout the region. The vines are mainly aged between 25 and 35 years although some date back to when Gilles’s greatgrandfather ran the domaine.

     

    Gilles is in charge of viticulture. The finest possible grapes are grown with a fastidious, environmentally conscious approach to quality, lower yields and scrupulous selection. Nathalie oversees winemaking, where small, temperature controlled stainless steel tanks are used to vinify each parcel separately.

     

    The resulting wines are beautiful expressions of classic, fine, concentrated, pure, steely, minerally Chablis.

  • Chablis 1er Cru “Beauroy” 2017, Domaine Hamelin, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    Chablis 1er Cru “Beauroy” 2017, Domaine Hamelin, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    WB21

    Thierry Hamelin’s family domaine is 36ha in the villages of Poinchy, Lignorelles and Beines. He now works with his son, Charles, who has studied oenology and worked in New Zealand and other regions.

     

    The Premier Cru Cru Beauroy is from a 3.9ha site on steep, south facing slopes at an inclination of 30-40° on Kimmeridgian soil. The vines were planted between 1980 and 1982. This type of soil, regarded as the best in the Chablis region, contains mineral-rich clay and has a high content of marine fossils which gives the soil its high lime content. This in turn gives the wines great intensity and character.

     

    No wood is used with the wine being fermented and aged for 12-18 months in stainless steel.

     

    Vivid pale yellow in appearance with a hint of green, the nose is very expressive with the aromas of white flowers and fresh minerality. The palate is dry, powerful and rich with the ripe fruit supported by fine acidity and excellent minerality. A Premier Cru of great elegance and finesse.

     

    The Hamelin’s lost over 40% of the crop in 2016 because of hail and 55% in 2017 following 5 consecutive days of frost!. So a whole vintage has been lost in 2 years.

  • Chablis Grand Cru “Vaudésir” 2016, Domaine Christian Moreau, Père et Fils, 13% vol, 75cl

    Chablis Grand Cru “Vaudésir” 2016, Domaine Christian Moreau, Père et Fils, 13% vol, 75cl

    WB11

    Moreau’s “Vaudésir” is from vines aged between 40 and 65 years old.

     

    Fermentation is is stainless steel and 65% of the wine stays in steel whilst the remaining 35% is aged in oak – 90% is 1-3 year old wood and only 10% is new. This gives a very restrained expression of oak – it seasons rather than flavours.

     

    Rich and ripe with a lot of weight and power.
