2019 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros - Côte de Bougerots" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1542718 96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This too offers a wonderfully broad range of classic Chablis elements that include mineral reduction, iodine, ocean breeze and quinine on the citrus-infused nose. The racy, detailed and beautifully textured and focused flavors deliver outstanding length on the balanced, saliva-inducing and sneaky long finish. This is also quite classy and if not quite as complete as the Preuses at present, the track record this wine has of developing superb depth over time gives it the slight edge at this early juncture.

96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark From Fevre's tiny plot on the steepest part of Bougros, Côte de Bouguerots adds even more complexity and drive to a stunning site. There is such finesse here, allied with density on the palate, savoury characters and perfectly balanced acidity. A very mineral expression of Grand Cru Chablis. Difficult to talk about fruit flavours here as the mineral/savoury elements are the star of the show. A great Grand Cru with a very long future ahead. (AH) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Côte Bouguerots is brilliant, unwinding in the glass with notes of warm bread, crisp orchard fruit, beeswax and oyster shell. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's deep and concentrated, with huge reserves of chalky structure and an incisive spine of acidity. It concludes with a finish of almost disconcerting intensity. Again, this is a very tightly wound young wine, cropped at only 29 hectoliters per hectare, and it will require and reward patience. I left my tasting with Didier Séguier wondering if the 2019s might be the best vintage I've ever tasted at Domaine William Fèvre. At this address, the vintage's low yields have translated to wines of remarkable concentration, but Séguier has also achieved levels of cut and tension that are rare in contemporary Chablis. My only reservation (if one can call it that) is that these are serious, structured wines that are tightly wound and introverted after their recent bottling, a tendency no doubt amplified by their DIAM closures; therefore, many are surely destined to be drunk too young. But readers who purchase Fèvre's top 2019s and forget them for more than a decade are going to be richly rewarded, of that I'm confident. Aside from the quality of the 2019 vintage, the other big news here is that Fèvre is converting to organic farming, an ambitious and admirable project for this 78-hectare domaine.

K&L Notes

93-96 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Brisk mid lemon colour. Steely nose, perhaps a waft of ripe lemon with it. Just 25 hl/ha produced. Very pure, intense white fruit, but with its electric backbone of steel, and exceptional intensity with its usual brilliant white fruit character. Coats the teeth and excellent length." (10/2020)
