2011 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros-Côte de Bouguerots"

SKU #1131184 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 This is also completely classic and even more aromatically complex with a plethora of sea shore nuances to the cool green fruit scents. On the palate this is dense, powerful and quite serious with brooding flavors that brim with dry extract that buffers the firm acid spine on the intensely mineral-driven and explosively long finish. This is the biggest wine in the range yet impeccably well-balanced and if not exactly refined, then certainly not rustic either. If this can add even more depth than I am projecting my predicted score will seem to be overly conservative.  (10/2015)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There is good minerality on the nose of the Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Côte Bouguerots – real flinty aromas with smoke and a touch of grilled hazelnut. The palate is well balanced with lemon peel and freshly slice lime on the entry. The acidity is very well judged, very harmonious with a feminine, almost understated finish that is graceful and elegant. This is roaring away at the starting blocks. Excellent. (NM)  (11/2014)

 Pale, bright yellow-green. Vibrant citrus fruits, mint, menthol and minerals on the nose. Tactile and extract-rich, with terrific cut to its lemon and flint flavors. Really saturates the palate on the chewy, precise, very long finish. Made from a steep site that faces full south, this wine is a moderate 12.5% alcohol in the bottle. (ST)  (7/2013)

93 points Vinous

 The 2011 Chablis Bougros Cote Bouguerots is a beautifully layered, textured wine that brings together the very best qualities of the year at Fevre. White peach, crushed rocks and jasmine meld together in a wine that is quite generous, yet also retains considerable acidity and minerality. A bright, crystalline finish rounds things out nicely.

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The region north of the Cote d'Or, famous for its steely dry white wines made from Chardonnay. There are 7 Grands Crus vineyards, and numerous Premier Crus. Unfortunately, the name has been borrowed and badly abused by producers of inferior white wines in the US as well as in Australia. True French Chablis is a delicate, stony, crisp Chardonnay, bearing no resemblance to the anonymous plonk so labeled here.
