Medium gold color. Nice weight. An un-Chablis like nose. Notes of ginger and iodine, lemon, white clay and some cardamom. Sweet fruit in the mouth, but quiet and dull at first. It needs 4 hours of air before the acidity comes out and any sort of structure appears. If one was to drink this before hour 4, you might dump it as it was not at all interesting until then. Overall it’s not a bad showing, but this is another 05 Chablis that to me comes across more like a really good CA Chardonnay rather than what I look for in a grand cru Chablis. Maybe more age helps? — 9 days ago

🏅 Rating 91+/100 (4,15⭐)
Yellow color. Bigger volume, complex. Nuanced with secondary aromas, richer. Oak adds layers and nicely integrates with wine. Stone fruits, touch of almonds. Good balance between oak and steel maturation. Very Chablis with signature acidity and salinity. Balanced and charming.
Bougros lies at the very western end of the Grands Crus area, 130-170m on fairly deep marl and clay terrain with a SW exposure.
William Fèvre owns 6.2ha out of 12.6ha. Over 50% of the wine are matured in old French oak barrels for 6mo and then transferred in steel tanks. Total maturation takes about 15mo.

Pretty dark ruby color, slight acid with a long finish of chocolate, berries and black pepper. On the palate flavors of plum, cherry, strawberries, blueberries and baking spice. Easy to drink on its own but would be delightful with steak or some hearty cheeses! — 8 days ago
