2007 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros"

SKU #1242641 92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here too there is a very subtle influence of wood that frames ripe yet elegant and impressively pure aromas of citrus, spice hints, tidal pool and oyster shell notes, all of which are picked up by the highly complex and deep big-bodied flavors that are incredibly intense and quite unusually for Bougros, possess 'hot knife through butter' cut and delineation. An atypically elegant effort for the appellation. *Don't Miss!* Inner quote mark (10/2008)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark Domaine William Fèvre is the largest owner of vines in the grand cru of Bougros, and consequently makes two distinct bottlings from this vineyard, their 'regular' Bougros (if such a term can be used for a superb bottle of grand cru Chablis) and their Côte de Bougerots bottling made from their oldest vines that are located at the nexus of Bougros and Les Preuses. The straight Bougros is brilliant in 2007, as it offers up a vibrant mélange of lime, pear, orange zest, green apple, beautifully complex soil tones and orange blossoms in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and very pure, with great focus and cut, fine mid-palate depth and a very long, complex and palate-staining finish. A terrific bottle this year.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Sweet lime, buddleia, lily, and hints of the ocean scent Fevre’s 2007 Chablis Bougros. On a creamy, dense palate, this gushes with liquid floral perfume, citrus, and an uncanny (more Preuses-typical) concentration of shrimp shell reduction and scallop whose sweet, saline, subtly iodine-bitter savor carries into a long, luscious yet lively conclusion. It took a while, relates Didier Seguier, to tame the inherent vigor of these deep, moisture-retentive soils, but tough love has – as this wine demonstrates – permitted the retention of infectiously ripe acidity and finesse to accompany Bougros largesse. (DS) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A big, burly Chablis, beautifully ripe, exhibiting powerful fruits overlaying a core of citrus and apple skin texture. The wine is open, rich, with an enticing juicy character, finished with bright, ripe acidity. (RV) Inner quote mark (7/2010)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pale, green-tinged yellow. Lime peel and metallic minerality on the nose. Juicy, citric and firmly built, with strong crushed stone and oyster minerality contributing to the impression of sharp definition. Richer than the Vaulorent but not quite as complex as that wine. Finishes with lovely grip and length though. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2009)
