2018 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros - Côte de Bougerots" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1474642 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark One of three producers in Chablis to bottle wine under this label (or a slight variation of its spelling), this comes from what is generally considered the best bit of Bougros, on a slope close to the River Serein. Picked early in 2018, this is fresher and more refined than it can be in warmer vintages, showing beeswax and citrus perfume, refined oak and lingering freshness. (TA) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chablis Bougros Côte Bouguerots Grand Cru is a dense, powerful and richly textured wine endowed with tremendous power. Rich yellow orchard fruit, crushed rocks, citrus and floral notes infuse a dense, potent Chablis that marries fruit richness and intense minerality. Ample and dramatic in its tremendous scale, the 2018 is compelling, sensual and racy - wow. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

95 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Côte de Bouguerots is also superb in this vintage, and is very, very elegant in profile out of the blocks. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a blend of fresh lime, pear, apple, chalky soil tones, apple blossoms and a topnote of beeswax. On the palate the wine is pure, fullbodied and impeccably balanced, with a rock solid core of fruit, laser-like focus and outstanding mineral drive on the long, snappy and complex finish. Stunning juice. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Côte Bouguerots is very promising, revealing a pretty bouquet of white flowers, ripe citrus fruit and wet stones, followed by a full-bodied, ample but incisive palate that's racy, mineral and elegantly mordant, concluding with a long finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A pure essence is comprised by notes of white flowers, citrus, mineral reduction and a gentle application of wood. The racy, intense and equally refined middle weight flavors are also super-saline while exhibiting superb length on the balanced, youthfully austere and very dry finale. This will need to add depth over the next few years to merit the top end of my projected range but the underlying material appears to be up to the task. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

K&L Notes

94-97 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Glowing lemon and lime, this is very promising. The nose keeps drawing out more and more. This is the most complete wine among the William Fèvre 2018s to date. There is a lively fresh yellow fruit, with a huge but even distribution across the palate. Hillside minerals perfectly in place, and it stays light on its feet. With such energy!! Retasted after Les Preuses it shows even more vibrancy." 94 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Chablis Bougros Côte Bouguerots Grand Cru is definitely Fèvre’s best cuvée this vintage. It has a razor-sharp nose that you might attribute to a cooler growing season, offering scents of green apple and struck flint and subtle peachy notes that remain in the background. The palate displays exquisite balance and a perfect line of acidity. Harmonious and poised, it gently fans out toward the finish, deftly remaining on that liminal point between austerity and flavor. This is an impressive Chablis from one of its most propitious vineyards." (9/2020)
