The Willian Fevre Chablis Bougros Côte Bouguerots 2010 is a fabulous and mighty Chablis from two steep plots at the foot of the Bougros vineyard. The nose is fresh and vibrant with pure white fruit – hint of apple, white peach – crushed hazelnuts and a filigree yet intense minerality. On the palate lovely tension and freshness – youthful for a 7 year old wine – with a intense core of fruit and a long mineral driven finish. A big and quite powerful Chablis – very mineral with a fantastic balance and energy. A diam 10 cork has ensured that this wine is still very fresh and perhaps slight less developed than expected. Time will show how fast it will evolve ove the next 5 years. At the moment ideal with a lobster – with some years more of development I would prefer my lobster grilled … an Outstanding Chablis.

I love a good Chablis, and one of my favourite sources is William Fevre – the Henriot owned producer – alongside Raveneau and Dauvissat. So always I make do with the very best if ...
- WineHog rating system – more than points My aim with the Winehog is unchanged, but I have for some time wanted a stronger focus on the hedonistic pleasure and simple enjoyment of drinking Burgundies. I have therefore adjusted my mission statement: “My mission is to help readers find more joy and hedonistic pleasure in Burgundy wines; to help them understand the terroirs and ...
