Tasting Notes

Aromas of crisp green orchard fruit, clear honey, peach, mint and buttery pastry introduce the 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros, a full-bodied, ample and enveloping wine that's one of the more textural, dramatic wines in the range. Unusually deep and concentrated, its immediate, charming profile belies considerable aging potential this year. 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.

A ripe and beautifully layered nose consists of notes of green fruit, citrus, iodine and mineral reduction. The powerful, rich and voluminous big-bodied flavors possess fine mid-palate density that coats the palate with sap before concluding in an austere, long and vaguely rustic finale. This is an imposing Bougros that should age effortlessly over the next decade plus. Sweet spot

Score: 92 - 94

Allen Meadows, Burghound Maturity: 2029+ 10 November 2020

The Bougros vineyard is the most challenging from the viticultural point of view, Didier tells me. It requires a team of nine people for a total of 1800 man hours out there with their pickaxes. The results are excellent though. One of the palest colours. A discreet nose, but there is, some power of white fruit lurking behind. Dynamic tension on the palate, with excellent grip, a little spice, with a dancing deep concentration of white fruit. And properly Chablis.

Score: 92 - 95
