2020 William Fevre Montmains versus Jean Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru Montmains
For Jean Dauvissat Montmains 2020, please refer to my past tasting notes. William Fevre is an overall well-rounded producer from Chablis, thus it’s a formidable competitor for Jean Dauvissat. It has been really difficult to get hold of William Fevre Montmains, thus I am honoured to put this pair side-by-side for comparison, especially when both wines come from the same terroir and vintage. I will skip all the technical details and tasting notes, you can certainly find these elsewhere. Upon having the first sip, anyone would have written off William Fevre as a contender as Jean Dauvissat Montmains was miles ahead in terms of body, complexity and taste; Fevre was way too skinny to boot off with. However, I certainly did not give up on the first glass, as it’ll be an utter waste of wines. I continued to observe the content for around one hour during dinner, and I realized Fevre keeps improving! The wine has gained body weight at an astonishing speed, and towards the end of tasting, Fevre almost caught up with Jean Dauvissat, although I would still declare Jean Dauvissat as the clear winner throughout the whole race. It’s astonishing to find a premier cru having so much evolution, not often I come across such a bottle at premier cru level. William Fevre is still a very strong competitor at any level.
