When William Févre declared their first vintage in 1959, they owned just seven hectares of vineyard. Today they have 78 hectares of some of the most prestigious terroir in the world. The deep Kimmeridgian (clay & limestone) soils of Chablis give the wines their incredible freshness and minerality. Commitment to quality is not in question and talented winemaker Didier Séguier, at the helm since 1998, crafts some of the region’s most characterful wines. Harvesting is all done by hard, allowing for fruit to arrive at the winery in prime condition, ahead of a judicious sorting to only select the very best quality.
This Climat where Chablis, Vaulorent grows is almost an extension of the slopes where the Grands Crus grow, with only a small path separating them. Sitting directly alongside Les Preuses, the proximity to its illustrious neighbours results in powerful, mineral wines. Powerful nose, combining aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruit with a mineral note typical of the appellation. Rich and concentrated, the palate has remarkable freshness and length.
