Founded by Jean Febvre, a barrel maker, in
1840, Simonnet-Febvre originally specialized
in sparkling wine known today as Cremant
de Bourgogne. Over the years, the Febvres
acquired holdings in some of the greatest terroirs
in Chablis. In addition to producing Cremant
de Bourgogne, the winery has an outstanding
reputation for Chardonnay. Chablis is
the northernmost subregion of Burgundy, and
the vineyards are closer to the Champagne
region than the Cote d’Or, producing wines
known for their steely minerality and lively
acidity. In 2003, Maison Louis Latour purchased
Simonnet-Febvre, renovated the winemaking
facilities and implemented sustainable
vineyard practices—changes that have had a
positive impact on quality.
