Vinous Reverie Notes
Bougros is one of the seven climats of the Chablis Grand Cru white wine appellation, located at the northwestern edge of the Grand Cru hillside. The wines made from this vineyard are quite rounded and less austere than those from the other Chablis Grand Cru climats. Solid but elegant, they tend to be more accessible when young. The vineyard covers about 37 acres (15ha) of slopes on the edge of the Serein river just east of Chablis town, with its vines planted in much-prized Kimmeridgian soil – an essential ingredient in the Chablis terroir. The Les preuses Grand Cru vineyard lies above Bougros on the hill, and the Fourchaume 1er Cru vineyard is just to the north. Tasting Notes: A deep limpid golden color and a complex nose of ripe fruits. The wine is very rich with good volume it is unctuous punctuated with notes of almonds, white flowers and smoke. A gourmet wine which is ample and balanced with a refined minerality that has aromas of seashells. The finish is long and flavorsome.
