CHABLIS GRAND CRU, Bougros

Chardonnay 100%

This grand cru is situated on the west/south-west extremity of the seven grands crus of Chablis. Our cuvée of Bougros comes from a vine located on the top of the slope, so the exposure to the sun is excellent. The wine is fermented and aged in oak barrels with regular "batonnage". The coolness of the cellar exempts us from a cold stabilisation process: the precipitation of tartar crystals takes place naturally during winter. Then the wine is bottled with a light filtration after 18 months ageing. 

Very pleasant with flavours of flowers, honeysuckle in particular, and mineral notes, it is also full in the mouth with good length. To serve at 13°C with steamed turbot and asparagus for exampl

(AM=90-92) An attractive fresh and pretty combination offers up notes of citrus, green fruit and enough Chablis character to be persuasive trimmed in slightly less evident wood. There is excellent size, weight and power to the full-bodied and mouth coating flavors that possess a chalky palate impression on the serious, dry and robust finale that flirts with rusticity. This too should reward up to a decade of bottle age.
