1997 Verget Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros"

SKU #150333 94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe, rich, creamy, buttery, showy and just terrific, this cascades along the palate with all the subtlety of lava flowing down the flank of Mt. Vesuvius, popping with toasted oak, nuts, lemon and ultraripe fruit and roaring to a long, spectacular finish. Best from 2004 through 2012. 608 cases made. Inner quote mark (5/1999)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The salt, mineral, and chalk-scented 1997 Chablis Bougros is fat, dense, and rich, yet not very intense or full-flavored. It is a complex, concentrated, pristine wine with extraordinary balance. Sweet oak spices, stones, and a salty sea breeze can be found in this superb offering's flavor profile and long finish. Inner quote mark (2/1999)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Musky, gingery nose hints at pineapple and oak char. Dense and spicy; a superripe, almost luscious style of Chablis that currently shows more oak than minerality. But there plenty of underlying stoniness and excellent cut. Inner quote mark (9/1999)

K&L Notes

The ripeness of the 1997 vintage is eveident in this wine. Described by the Wine Advocate as 'complex, concentrated, pristine wine with extraordinary balance. Sweet oak spices, stones, and a salty sea breeze can be found in this superb offering's flavor profile and long finish.' I do not know what to add, except that this is classic Chablis, and not to be missed. Oh, and for you number hounds, it got a 91-93.
