THIS IS FOR THE 2011 VINTAGE

About This Wine:


Characteristics of the appellation:
Bougros sits on a very steep slope, with a gradient of more than 30%, facing due south at the foot of the hill. The shallow soil, a mixture of clay and gravel, prevents excessive yields resulting in complex, robust wines.

Tasting Notes:
Great complexity on the bouquet, with a robust structure and well weighted mouthfeel.

Food-wine matches:
Fish, shellfish and other seafood, grilled or in a cream sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.


Ratings & Reviews

93-96 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"This is also completely classic and even more aromatically complex with a plethora of sea shore nuances to the cool green fruit scents. On the palate this is dense, powerful and quite serious with brooding flavors that brim with dry extract that buffers the firm acid spine on the intensely mineral-driven and explosively long finish. This is the biggest wine in the range yet impeccably well-balanced and if not exactly refined, then certainly not rustic either. A 'wow' wine." (Sep 10, 2012)

92-94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Veins of cool, vibrant minerality frame layers of expressive fruit in the 2011 Chablis Bougros Cote Bouguerots. This large-scaled, imposing wine is holding back much of its energy today. There is an implosive quality that is impossible to miss. The combination of fruit and intense minerality is highly appealing, even at this early stage. Anticipated maturity: 2013+." - Antonio Galloni (Aug 2012)

92-92 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Pale, bright, green-tinged yellow. Aromas of ripe peach, silex, crushed rock and lichee. Ripe, chewy and dry, with penetrating minerality giving the mid-palate a light touch but keeping it quite tightly wound. Comes off as much less silky and more taut than the Valmur. Most impressive today on the firmly structured, classically dry, very long finish, which leaves the palate saturated with dusty, saline minerality. Still, winemaker Seguier says that this wine, from a south-facing site, is "easier" today then the estate's Clos." - Stephen Tanzer (Jul '12)
