Tasting Notes

As it always is, this is more elegant and refined than the regular cuvée of Bougros with high-toned but reluctant citrus, stone and sea breeze aromas dissolving into powerful, focused and pure flavors that are precise and wonderfully intense plus offering the same impressive level of dry extract and an almost aggressively mineral and hugely long and very dry finish. I have always very much liked the character of this wine as it manages to pull off blending raw power with elegance and not losing either element in the bargain.

Score: 93

Allen Meadows, Burghound Maturity: 2013+ 01 October 2008

From this cru’s steep, riverside slopes, the Fevre 2006 Chablis Bougros Cote de Bouguerots reveals its oak in lanolin, toasted almond, and spice aromas, along with notes of chalk dust, sweet lime, and heady, lily-like floral perfume. With enveloping richness, luscious juiciness, and flattering creaminess, yet underlain by a vivid sense of crushed stone, this saturates the palate so completely and intensely and with such a palpable sense of extract, that the finishing stain seems almost severe. This remarkably concentrated and polished wine should be worth following for 15 or more years. The 2005, too, is superb.

Score: 94 - 95

David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate 01 October 2008

Pure, reticent nose hints at crushed stone and exotic fruits. Wonderfully dense and tactile in the mouth, with captivating, soil-driven flavors of dried fruits, citrus peel, stone and hazelnut, along with a toasty nuance. The faintly exotic character carries through in the mouth: I was reminded both of Corton-Charlemagne and noble rot. Fascinating wine, finishing with outstanding breadth. 94 points

Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar 01 July 2008

Even more creamy than the Bougros with baked apple. Then just as creamy yet fresh on the palate. Balanced, elegant and long.

Score: 17 - 18
