2014 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros"
Allen Meadows - Burghound
A subtle touch of wood sets off the restrained and all but mute nose where about the only identifiable aromas are green fruit and algae. There is very fine richness to the big-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that deliver fine length and very solid depth. This is certainly very good though it clearly is not at the same level as its other grand cru brethren.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros has an attractive bouquet with scents of apple peelings, cold steel and flint-like aromas--austere, but nicely focused. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, fine definition and harmony, gently building in the mouth towards what is quite an elegant and saline finish. Give this a couple of years in bottle and you should have a fine Bougros on your hands. (NM)
Very pale lemon-yellow. Vibrant aromas of white peach, grapefruit, lemon and crushed stone. Bigger and sweeter than the Vaulorent, showing grand cru weight but not quite the same energy or cut as the premier cru. This very backward, saline wine communicates an impression of strong dry extract and citrus thrust. The yield here was at least 40 hectoliters per hectare in 2014, according to Séguier. 92+ (ST)
This light-footed white delivers apple, stone and spice flavors that are intense and long. Vivid acidity keeps this defined, while the fruit and mineral elements persist. Drink now through 2018. (BS)
