William Fevre Petit Chablis 2018
The William Fevre Petit Chablis comes from vineyards with a Kimmeridgian subsoil. This soil type is only found in Burgundy, Champagne, and some parts of southern England. This subsoil comes from a 180 million-year-old geologic formation of decomposed clay and limestone, containing tiny fossilized oyster shells. This soil type produces wines with a unique minerality and salinity that is often hard to find in wines, especially Chardonnay. 6-year-old barrels are used in order to preserve the freshness and minerality of the wine, rather than bombard it with oak.
Flavours of citrus, peach and melons combine with a fresh minerality and soft hints of vanilla and almond oak in this lovely Chablis. William Fevre Petit Chablis is an affordable introduction to the world’s finest Chablis. This wine is ready to be enjoyed now and pairs beautifully with a range of seafood dishes, particularly oysters and sushi.
