Flowering was difficult in 2014 because of the warm weather that caused outbreak of coulure, particularly in the earlier (ripening) part of Chablis in the Premier and Grand Cru. This reduced the yield by 20% to 30%, but it was not the case for Petit Chablis and Chablis as the flowering tends to be later. That said, the yield was better than 2013, but still less than average.

The 2014 Vintage is more minerally and fresh, has good ageing potential and is a perfect vintage for purists and Chablis lovers.

The 2014 Chablis from the Domaine comes from Fevre's own grapes and sees 5 to 10% raised in used oak for 4 to 6 months before blending in tank. It has a lifted, fresh Granny Smith apple and dewy-lawn nose that is well defined and precise. The palate is crisp and fresh with a fine line of acidity, that judicious use of oak just filling in the gaps, taking away some of the severity that would have been on the finish. As such, it is an approachable Chablis, fizzing with freshness and tension.
