2020, Domaine William Fevre, CHABLIS Grand Cru Bougros "Côte de Bougerots"

$195

Arriving August 2022.

The lowest yields from the steepest slope, just 25 hl/ha. Pure precise pale green. Chiselled stony white fruit nose, in contrast to the evident sunshine seen in Valmur and Vaudésir. A thrilling stony backbone, so pure not overdone. Pretty good wealth of flavour. **** 93-95 Jasper Morris MW.

Aromas of cool citrus, apple, mineral reduction and ocean breeze wisps. There is an almost painful intensity to the powerful but sleek and defined medium weight plus flavours that brim with minerality on the clean, very dry and hugely long finish. This is also potentially brilliant and well-worth considering. Don’t miss! 93-96 Burghound.

The 2020 Chablis Bougros Côte Bouguerots Grand Cru comes from two south-facing parcels on steep, sunny inclines. Proximity to the river keeps nighttime temperatures lower, maintaining acidity. The intense nose features lemon thyme, crushed pebbles and sea spray scents. The palate sports a minor reduction, but there is fine depth here along with a keen line of acidity. Touches of white peach and nectarine emerge toward the minerally finish. Very fine. 92-94 Neal Martin.
