    A balanced Chablis Grand Cru white wine from La Chablisienne

    White wine produced exclusively from Chardonnay in the Chablis Grand Cru appellation, the Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros" from La Chablisienne benefits from plots aged 30 years on average and planted on medium and superior Kimmeridgian soils with alternating limestone and marl in Exogyra virgula. The ageing of the Bougros 2012 de La Chablisienne is done in tanks and barrels, for 20 months on average, all on fine lees.

    With its brilliant pale yellow colour, the Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros" 2012 from La Chablisienne has develops caramel and mint fragrances on the nose. The palate reveals an explosion of flavours, offering a beautiful texture, complex, full and long. The finish reveals subtle and fresh aniseed and menthol touches. A well-balanced La Chablisienne wine with good potential for ageing.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2012 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros is from 0.59 hectares of 30-year-old vine and spends 20 months in stainless steel and oak barrels. It has better definition and focus than Les Clos '12, with tightly wound granite and apple blossom scents. The palate is clean and fresh with good acidity that lends this Bougros fine tension, although I am seeking more complexity and terroir expression on the finish. Drink now-2019.
