2004 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Bougros "Côte de Bouguerots"

SKU #1022417 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Minerals, chalk, rosemary, thyme, and white pepper are found in the nuanced aromatics of the sublime 2004 Chablis Bougros Cote Bouguerots (domaine). Produced from south-facing vines that bask in the sun whenever it appears, this wine reveals astounding amplitude, depth, concentration, and power. Its rich core is sappy, silky-textured, and presents intense liquefied stone flavors. Notes of fresh mint leaves appear in this offering’s prolonged finish. (PR)  (6/2006)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Brioche and obvious mineral notes can be found on the expressive and perfumed floral nose that lead to stunningly vibrant and energetic flavors that explode on the hugely long and almost painfully intense finish. In sum, this is a powerful yet tautly focused wine that is more a thoroughbred than linebacker and this should give the 2002 version a serious run for its money.  (10/2006)

93 points John Gilman

 The 2004 Côte de Bougerots from Domaine William Fèvre is a lovely wine that is simply bursting at the seams on both the nose and palate. The bouquet is a vibrant mélange of apple, lime zest, orange blossoms, profound, limestone, a touch of hay and a lovely base of wet stone minerality as well. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, complex and very pure, with fine mid-palate depth, lovely complexity, brisk acids and a very long, refined and racy finish.  (4/2009)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Pale color. Pungent, expressive aromas of lemon, lime, crushed stone, mint and minerals. Densely packed and penetrating, with the definition and cut of the vintage in spades. And yet this very young wine also boasts a lovely, subtle, slow-mounting finish. This is accessible already owing to its strong fruit but will age gracefully for a good 10 to 15 years.

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.
