Grape(s) : Chardonnay
Localisation : Chablis, Burgundy, France
Tasting Notes : Typical of Grand Cru Bougros, this wine is always supple with a fresh style and a remarkably long finish. Its rich mineral character is balanced with fruity aromas and a hint of honey. Golden green colours with silvery grey highlights. The nose is mentholated, slightly iodized (oyster shell), evolving on notes of crystallized citrus fruits (crystallized orange). The palate mix minerality, salinity, strength, roundness and richness.
95pts Wine Enthusiast : Lemon oil, flint and creaminess unite on this wine’s subtle nose. The palate comes in with a rounded, creamy presence that combines yeasty richness, textural charm and chalky depth with the ripeness and freshness of lemon oil. This wine is concentrated, energetic and bold, channeling its drive towards a lasting finish that lets lemon and chalk speak clearly. Drink 2025–2045.
Winemaking : Pneumatic pressing. Alcoholic fermentation in tank with native yeasts. Malolactic fermentation completed. Ageing on the lees during 18 months, 2/3 in foudre (oak which can contain 100 hl) and 1/3 in stainless steel vat. Delicious with Foie gras, scallops, chicken in morels.
