William Fevre Chablis Champs Royaux 2020 is an elegant and classic Chablis crafted from 100% Chardonnay grapes sourced from Kimmeridgian subsoil. The subsoil of Chablis is rich in minerals and fossils, imparting a distinct mineral character to the wine. The soils also create the ideal environment for growing Chablis grapes, with its chalky clay and marly limestone that imbue the wine with freshness and personality.

This wine showcases a very fresh nose, with zesty notes of citrus and white-fleshed fruit and subtle oak influence. On the palate, the wine reveals its minerality, with a savory mix of flint and almond and a saline finish. It is balanced and bright in the mouth, with good acidity and a juicy texture.

The wine is created by winemaker Didier Seguier, who combines traditional methods such as manual harvesting and gravity-led winemaking, with modern practices such as the use of stainless steel vats as well as the barrel fermentation of 5% of the harvest. Mild climatic conditions and long winter and spring temperatures allow the wine to develop the perfect aromatic intensity, and the cool summer nights and morning dew preserve its freshness and delicate aromatics.

William Fevre Chablis Champs Royaux 2020 is a beautiful and classic wine that pairs well with light seafood dishes or oysters. It is best served at a temperature between 12°C to 14°C.

  1. Caleb Reitz

    Vintage Wines Ltd.’s Winebar offers a flinty, mineral taste with hints of apple and a slight yeastiness. It has a medium-full body and a tangy/sweet finish with a hint of bitterness. It’s a great value and should be aged for 6 months.

  2. Michael Thomas

    Light golden color. Aromatic nose of ripe fruit with mineral/flinty overtones, floral notes & a hint of honey. Medium-bodied with well-balanced & smooth textured, ripe citrus flavors and a crisp finish. Potential for further development.

  3. Charles Plank

    Balanced Chardonnay, straw color, mineral elements. Citrus, floral, stone fruit. Light-bodied, fresh, 13% alcohol, crisp with long finish. Drink now-2023.

  4. Ethel Watkins

    Nice light gold color with lemon/grapefruit aromas. Moderate acidity, medium weight, and good balance with decent length. Perfectly paired with pan-fried scallops, steamed broccoli, and rice.

  5. Dennis Bond

    “Understated flavors of apple and lime, light-bodied. 13% ABV. Watered down?”

  6. Michael Lawrence

    Pleasant wine with shells, dust, floral, and green apple notes. Good minerality. Introductory Chablis wine with lemon, sulfur, and spice flavors. Short to medium finish. 88 points on day 1, 87 points on days 2 and 3.

  7. Stacie Saar

    Floral and citrus aromas with wet stone and mineral notes, dry and medium-bodied with a medium finish. Additional notes of hay, mushroom, and earth. Very good.

  8. Gregory Henderson

    Citrus and mineral balance. Good value, not too grassy.

  37. Karen Harsh

  38. Antoinette Newman

    Great weeknight Chablis, would be better if priced at $17-19 with a screw cap. Still good value at $25.

  39. Sheila Long

    Classic Chablis flavor with an attractive and sophisticated touch. Nicely broad palate. Over-performs for less cost than most white Bourgogne.

    Review: Subtle oak, green apple, and orange pith on the nose, with a palate of flower tea and mild acidity. Pair with salmon and veggies. Overall enjoyable, more than just an aperitif. Consensus: 89 points (88 and 90).

  53. Christopher Vandeusen

    Great village Chablis from a top producer with a mainstream style.

  54. Alla Montague

    Decent wine from a good producer, but with phenolic bitterness. Nose of lemongrass, apple and pear. Palate has salinity, but feels disjointed. Another year may help.

  55. Debbie Stahlberg

    Great value Chablis: grassy and honeysuckle on the nose, light-bodied with a slightly tart mid-way. Intense lemon and mineral flavors with a quick, cool finish.

  57. Mary Hall

  60. Jody Schuch

    Enjoyable wine with mineral, citrus, and salinity notes, but lacking freshness. Possible oak influence.

  61. Richard Padilla

    Launderette’s bottle has a subtle nose with lemon peel, slate, and underripe tropical fruit. The palate is balanced by acidity, with underripe pineapple and a slightly bitter finish. Good for half-price bottle Mondays.

  62. Ernestine Kay

    Aromas of wheat paste. Palate has bitter pith with minimal bitter mineral notes.

  63. Tangela Jaillet

    Perfect with oysters.

  64. George Lister

    Balanced with citrus and honeysuckle notes and a mineral touch. Medium-high acidity and structure lead to a complex, long finish.

  65. Nancy Pennington

    Medium-bodied Chablis with medium-high acidity. Tastes of green apple, lemon curd, blanched almond, and wet stones. Can age a few more years.

  66. Nicholas Allen

    Solid Chablis- medium body, lemony with good acidity and soil.

  67. Todd Coleman

    Electric acidity, stone fruit, pear. Great Chablis.

  68. Merissa Stanick

    Slim and refreshing, this 100% Chardonnay has notes of lime, linden flowers, and limestone. Vibrant acidity and delicate fruit make it easy to drink. Best when young.

  69. Tanya Shaffer

    Well balanced with ample citrus, nut, mineral, and fruit flavors. No vanilla, oak, alcohol, or buttered popcorn. Perfect for high-end California Chard tastings.

  70. Hazel Key

    Chablis with jade reflections, powerful with lemon and anise notes. Sharp acidity and a green apple finish. Good wine but getting expensive. (**1/2+)

  71. Jon Bahlmann

    Dry, mid-weight palate with citrus, apple, and mineral notes and a leesy touch. Good replays and length. 3.5/5.

  72. Muriel Lopez

    Atypical for 2020, rich with deep citrus flavors and mild acidity.

  73. Ruth Hill

    Lemon, green apple, smooth, complex mid palate, long finish with beautiful acidity. Drink up.

  74. Zena Odowd

    Pale straw with aromas of saline, citrus, unripe golden apple, and wet pebbles. Zippy, acid-driven and light-bodied with lemon and lime rind and minerality. Perfect for aperitif at raw bar. 90 pts.

  75. Willie Reese

    Typical with pale jade color and noticeable salinity. Becomes more enveloping and almost oily in 2020 vintage. (**1/2+)

  76. DEC

    From purchased grapes, Champs Royaux is an historic mark created in the past by William Fèvre. 5% is fermented in old wood from Bouchard, with the rest in steel. Lovely notes of confit lemon here, very good acidity and minerality. A complex, saline, age-worthy Chablis which will go beautifully with food.

  77. VIN

    The 2020 Chablis Champs Royaux, 8% aged in used barrels for six months, has a charming nose of yellow plum and orchard fruit. The palate is zesty on the entry with fine acidity, a touch of almond and good salinity on the finish. Not long in the mouth, but there is plenty of freshness here.

  78. BUR

    A slightly riper nose also reflects good Chablis typicity with a bit more iodine character that continues onto the precise and delicious if not especially complex medium weight flavors that deliver a bit more weight and length on the balanced and firmer finish.
