Chablis Grand Cru Bougros 2009
Source : Stephen Tanzer - July/August 2010
90-93/100. (still in tank; this was in two-year-old barrels until the 2010 harvest): Green-tinged yellow. Ripe peach, gingery oak spice and a whiff of smoked meat on the nose, lifted by lime blosssom. Very rich and largescaled Chablis, with a distinct thickness to its intense pineapple and spice flavors. Not high in acidity but there's no shortage of energy here. Finishes with a slowly mounting whiplash of fruit and considerable lingering sweetness. This outsized wine is more Cote d'Or than Chablis in style.
