Introduction : Gilles and Nathalie Fèvre met at university where they both qualified as oenologists. Gilles is in charge of viticulture and Nathalie oversees vinification. Gilles’ great grandfather began growing grapes and making wine in and around the village of Fontenay-Près-Chablis over a hundred years ago. They have now been joined by their daughter Julie – a qualified agricultural engineer and oenologue in her own right. This is a wonderful 50 hectare domaine, all planted on Kimmeridgian limestone – 33 hectares of which are village Chablis.
This Petit Chablis comes from parcels situated on the plate between the village of Fontenay-Près-Chablis and Chablis and grow on stony soils (Portlandien Limestone).
Vinification : Vinification in air-conditionned stainless steel tanks, with low temperature for conserving the fruity character. Bottling and storage in air-conditioned cellar before shipping.
Tasting Notes : This Petit Chablis is fresh and very fruity, aromatic, and pleasant to drink.
Food Pairing : Absolutely lovely during the spring and the summer, this wine is perfect for an aperitif or with summer recipes (from sea, for example) and with meat.
Production : 8,000 Bottles
