A restrained nose of citrus, floral, mineral reduction and algae slides into impressively rich, powerful, serious and concentrated flavors that are almost painfully intense on the explosive and strikingly long finish. This is a classic Bougros with its robust and muscular big-bodied flavors.
With 10.18 acres, Fèvre owns one-third of this grand cru, a southwest-facing hillside that produced a spherical wine locked in a Kimmeridgian limestone shell. Scents of wildflower honey and creamy Meyer lemon flavors get cut by the blunt youth of the wine’s acidity and soil character. A transmigration of fossilized oyster shells into a Chardonnay of today.
(70% fermented in oak, none new): Lime blossom and spices on the nose. Tight and taut for Bougros, showing less give today than the Vaulorent Domaine. A bit lacking in flesh owing in part to strong citrussy acidity. Not yet especially complex, but I suspect this wine will drink on the early side. Finishes with a touch of earth. (ST)
The 2010 Chablis Bougros is terrific in this vintage, even if the slight lack of polish this site confers to the wines is impossible to completely escape. The aromas and flavors show a crystalline purity that is highly attractive. Floral notes add a further sense of lift on the expressive finish. (AG)
An apple flavor and a sharp lemon note run through this round white, which tightens up on the finish, with a hint of vanilla and lemon. Fresh and long. (BS)
