Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Bougros Cote Bouguerots 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Chablis|
|Brand||Domaine William Fèvre|
The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Côte Bouguerots has turned out very well, unwinding in the glass with bright aromas of white flowers, citrus zest, crisp orchard fruit, crushed stones and oyster shell. Medium to full-bodied, deep and tightly wound, it's racy and incisive, with bright acids and a searingly mineral finish. As usual, this is a cuvée that will appeal to Chablis purists.
The 2018 Chablis Bougros Cote Bouguerots Grand Cru is definitely Fevre's best cuvee 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.
This is round, with breadth to its melon, peach and grapefruit flavors. A touch of herbs chimes in as this finishes with a pleasant bitterness. Drink now through 2025.
