William Fèvre | Burgundy, France

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Domaine 2013

June 2015

James Suckling

This is a fabulous white wine with dried apple, mango and mineral plus hints of hazelnut. Full body, bright acidity and a long, dry finish. What a white.

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Domaine 2014

July 2016

92+

Vinous

Very pale lemon-yellow. Vibrant aromas of white peach, grapefruit, lemon and crushed stone. Bigger and sweeter than the Vaulorent, showing grand cru weight but not quite the same energy or cut as the premier cru. This very backward, saline wine communicates an impression of strong dry extract and citrus thrust. The yield here was at least 40 hectoliters per hectare in 2014, according to Séguier.

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Domaine 2014

October 2015

90-93

A subtle touch of wood sets off the restrained and all but mute nose where about the only identifiable aromas are green fruit and algae. There is very fine richness to the big-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that deliver fine length and very solid depth. This is certainly very good though it clearly is not at the same level as its other grand cru brethren.

Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Domaine 2014

August 2015

92-94

Vinous

Very pale green-tinged yellow. Lovely perfumed lift to the aromas of pink grapefruit and white flowers. Dense, saline and sweet; concentrated, rich and ripe but with lovely tension and tactile dusty-stone minerality to its grapefruit and ginger flavors. Picked at the perfect time, as Bougros harvested too late can be heavy. Serious but not austere, and very long on the aftertaste.

Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine 2015

September 2017

Wine Spectator

A distinctive aroma of sandalwood leads into flavors of vanilla, peach and melon in this balanced white, which has good cut, just needs time to shrug off the initial oak influence.

Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine 2013

August 2015

92

Vinous

Pale green-tinged yellow. Smoky silex minerality, rhubarb and a hint of vanilla on the complex nose. Rich, broad, fine-grained and voluptuous, offering excellent concentration to its yellow fruit and smoky mineral flavors. Finishes very long but a bit youthfully aggressive. Not yet showing the complexity of the Bougros Côte Bouguerots but this needs time.

Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine 2016

February 2018

James Suckling

The complexity, concentration and drive make this an excellent Clos in 2016. The fruits vary from citrus to exotic stone fruits. Green tropical and white floral notes, too. The palate has a staggeringly concentrated core of acid-drenched lemons, lime, peaches and green mangoes. Incredible depth, high acidity and a very long finish. A great Clos!

Wine Advocate

The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is 70% vinified in oak barrels for six months before maturation in stainless steel only. It has a very precise but powerful bouquet with lemon rind and flint scents, though it takes time to really open up. The palate is fresh and crisp with lime and apricot on the entry. The acidity is sharp and penetrating, gently building toward an intense, bitter-lemon finish that is elegant and refined. This is very impressive.

Decanter

A distinctly toasty nose, still reticent, with lime and apple fruit. Broad and rich, the palate shows ample sucrosity and intensity, lifted by fine acidity with a pungent and saline finish. Nutty and very long, and the wood seems well integrated.

A broad-ranging array features notes of spice, green apple, grapefruit, lemon rind and copious Chablis elements. Remarkably for a wine that is relatively quite refined, the medium-bodied and concentrated flavors are even more powerful than those of the Bougros, all wrapped in a superbly complex, saline and balanced finish where the citrus character telegraphed by the nose reappears on the explosive finale. There is a bit of wood in evidence but I doubt that it will take very long before it is fully integrated. In sum, this is one to strongly consider.
