William Fevre emanates fruity and floral bouquets that are marked by distinct mineral notes and great freshness. Hazelnut aromas, expressions of hay and of autumn, cheeky nuances of seaweed and bark, there is magic in the wine's ability to mate the disparate elements into a union which represents a character of its own.
The flavours flow freely onto the palate, a wine of marvelous clarity and long dry fruit, depth and purity. Satiating flavours of flint and of minerals, flowers and pears, lean and crisp, decent fruit, spice and honey in a light bodied and lively wine, inimitably suited to the best seafood, especially oysters.
Awards and Accolades
2013: 92 Points - Wine Spectator "A racy, steely version, boasting lime blossom, green plum, chive and mineral flavours. Clean and persistent, with a lingering finish of green fruit and stone. Drink now through 2020."
From the Winery
Vinification makes use of the principle of gravity so as to avoid all pumping, which could harm the quality of the wine. Brief (1½-2 hours) pneumatic pressing to obtain a gentle separation of the solid and liquid parts of the grape. Very light static settling of the juice to preserve enough fine lees so that the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations can occur naturally. The must is run in small stainless steel vats. Matured for 8 to 10 months in stainless steel vats to preserve freshness.
