The 2012 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Cote Bouguerots comes from a steep 45-degree part of the grand cru vineyard. It has a very intense bouquet with a strong mineral component that cannot be ignored. This demands attention! The palate is very well-balanced with a touch of orange rind and spice on the entry. There is good weight, hints of dried honey, citrus peel and quince on the back palate with a very precise finish. This is one hell of a precocious Chablis. Drink 2016-2030.

A strikingly pungent alliance of peppermint, pennyroyal, lemon rind and chalk dust surges from the glass of Fevre's 2012 Chablis Bougros Cote de Bouguerots - tasted some six months before bottling - and allies itself on a firm, bright palate with crab apple and toasted shrimp shells. Hints of noble fungus and bittersweet floral perfume emerge as the glass stands open, but the...

...emphasis here remains on tart fruits, green herbs, and stuff that requires a mineral vocabulary to imperfectly capture. This energetic but austere cru grips with formidable, pungent, brash tenacity. Its aptitude for refreshing, invigorating and tapping the salivary glands already, thankfully, triumphs over its austerity. Look for excitement through at least 2022.
