2014 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros, William Fèvre

“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.”

2014 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros, William Fèvre
Domaine William Fèvre

William Fèvre started his eponymous domaine in 1957, buying the region’s premiers and grands crus when they were out of fashion. He established the domaine as one of Chablis’ most prized, only retiring in 1998. He has since sold the estate to Champagne Henriot, who put the talented Didier Séguier at the helm, formerly of Bouchard Pere et Fils. Oak use has been reduced, and no new barrels are used. Here’s Chablis for lovers of Côte de Beaune whites, crisp and steely with round flavour.
