William Fevre, Bougros Cote Bouguerots, Chablis Grand Cru 2009

Chardonnay 100%

Description

The Bougros appellation covers just over 12 hectares, half of which belongs to William Fèvre. This terroir, although very ancient, is not talked about much, yet it is one of the seven Grand Crus of Chablis and certainly one of the best. The estate’s parcels are located on a steep slope, and the ‘Côte Bouguerots’ (ancient spelling of Bougros) represents a small enclave of only 2 hectares, situated at the foot of the hill. It is a small plot of land, accessible only on foot and must be worked by hand. Facing south, it enjoys excellent sun exposure, which makes a difference in the northern designations. Here, the vines allow for the production of a dense and full-bodied wine, complex and structured, richer than elsewhere in the region, thanks to shallow soils rich in clay and pebbles. The wine matures for about 14 months in total: for the first 6 months, 50% of it rests on fine lees in French oak barrels, while the rest is in steel. After blending the two portions, the aging process is completed in steel tanks.
