90 points Wine Spectator: "Clean and balanced, this white offers white peach, apple and floral aromas and flavors. A hint of mineral graces the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2023. (12/15/19)"

88+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The estate’s 2018 Champs Royaux bottling of Chablis AC, made from purchased grapes, is also quite tasty right out of the blocks this year. The wine delivers a fine combination of lemon, apple, a touch of beeswax, a good base of chalky soil elements and a bit of oyster shell in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and quite zesty for the vintage, with a lovely core, five focus and grip and sneaky length on the zesty finish. Good juice. 2020-2030. (Jan 2020)"

88 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(a négociant wine though Séguier points out that there is always some domaine fruit in the final blend; note that Champs Royaux is a trademarked cuvée name, not the name of a vineyard). Notes of quinine, petrol, tidal pool and a variety of citrus elements precede the equally energetic medium weight flavors that are once again markedly saline on the moderately dry and lingering finish. This is actually pretty good and while it's not quite as interesting as the domaine version, it's still worth checking out. Drink: 2022+. (Oct 2019)"

Producer notes: "William Fevre's Champs Royaux Chablis is impressively precise, delivering a nose of citrus fruits, flowers, green apple and flinty flavors of wet stone in the mid-palate with a beautifully clean finish. Fresh, supple, it is marked by mineral notes, typical of the appellation. A perfect accompaniment for shellfish menus, grilled fish, oysters, and sushi - but would also work well with many roast chicken recipes seasoned with fresh herbs such as thyme or tarragon.
