If there is one name in the Burgundy region synonymous with superlative, long-lasting Chablis then it is undoubtedly William Fevre. So how did he get to San Luis de Pirque? Fevre was hunting for terroir to produce Chardonnay outside of France. When he arrived in South America, he thought it odd the Chilean wine producers grew fruit down on the flat lands and he sought a parcel up higher in the mountains. He partnered with Victor Pino Torche, who owned vineyards on the banks of the Maipo River, and began crafting wines in a Burgundian style, slowly, on a smaller scale, barrel by barrel.
"An energetic Sauvignon Blanc, rich in herbal notes and especially generous in fruity aromas and flavors, this comes from a vineyard planted in 2007 in the Malleco zone, some 700 kilometers south of Santiago. The texture is creamy and almost succulent, although the acidity is fierce and razor sharp. One to drink with shellfish au gratin." Descorchados, 91 Points
"Pure, reductive nose with white asparagus, gooseberry and guava on the nose. Simple, fresh but textured and nicely saline. Drink now." James Suckling, 90 Points
