William Fèvre officially sold to Barons de Rothschild Lafite

After several months of negotiations, the change of ownership of the Chablis vineyard became official on January 10th.

After several months, Artémis Domaines has officially sold the William Fèvre vineyard to Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite. "For Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite, the addition of Domaine William Fèvre in Chablis to our family of estates is an exciting new adventure," explains Managing Director Saskia de Rothschild.

Big plans

The "spirit of the place and its team" in combination with organic viticulture and a "less interventionist approach" in the cellar would be a perfect fit for Rothschild Lafite's long-term company line, it continues. The company is also looking forward to producing "great white wines" together with WF director Didier Séguier and his team in the future.

Séguier already sees Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite as a suitable partner: "It is a strength to be able to draw on the knowledge of such a family of wineries to exchange ideas and drive our projects forward."

Historic terroirs

Over the years, Domaine William Fèvre has become one of the major players in the Chablis vineyards by selecting historic terroirs and has 90 plots covering 72 hectares, of which 15.9 are classified as "Premier Cru" and 15.2 as "Grand Cru".
