Description

The western most Grand Cru on fairly deep marl and clay. It faces south-west and is considered one of the fuller and richer styles

“(from a 1956 planting; 12.2% alcohol without chaptalization): Sexy musky reduction to the ripe stone fruit and spice flavors. Ripe and silky but quite dry in the mouth; youthfully backward but clearly riper than the Monteé de Tonnerre and Blanchots, showing musky quinine and ginger notes and good saline, mineral firmness on the slightly aggressive back end. Piuze thinks that Bougros is the best-aging vineyard in Chablis and that its wines gain in sharpness with cellaring. “Bougros features a lot of earth over the bedrock but the fruit shows tension even in very warm years,” he noted.” (90-92) points. Stephen Tanzer, Vinousmedia.com, July 2016

This Domaine is relatively new having started in 2008. Having received a great training in Chardonnay by working with Olivier Leflaive,  Jean-Marie Guffens at Verget and then cellar master at Jean Marc Brocard.  Patrick does not own any vineyards but works closely with growers and so has his pick of the great terroirs in Chablis.

Chablis – The kimmeridgean soils that make Chablis taste like Chablis is evident in these wines. They have more definition of region and more structure than a Petit Chablis but without the fruit weight and intensity of the better sites. Great wines for drinking young or youngish.

Chablis Grand Cru – Essentially the seven official Grand Cru sites of Chablis are one 100ha vineyard with many aspects. The way they can weave delicacy and power into these wines is amazing. It is preferably to drink them at about 15 years old but the best years will evolve for much longer.

Chardonnay – The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.
