"The 2016 Chablis Bougros Grand Cru, which sees 20% new oak over 12 months, has one of the better aromatics amongst its peers, clean and precise with apple blossom and light peach skin notes, the new oak present but simpatico with the fruit. The palate is fresh and detailed on the entry, well balanced and yes, showing some reduction towards the finish, although it is much better handled than many of its peers. Superb. Tasted blind at the BIVB Chablis tasting."

"Vanilla and toast aromas and flavors signal a good dose of new oak, while the lemon and apple flavors take a back seat for now. The bright acidity lingers, with an aftertaste of smoke and clove. Drink now through 2025. — BS"
The Lavantureux family’s new grands crus in Chablis are some of the most important and exciting additions to our portfolio over the past few years. Thanks to them, we now import every grand cru in Chablis except for Grenouilles! This Bougros shows itself to be immediately accessible, with the type of ripe, unctuous nose I love with grand cru Chablis. Any thoughts that it may be soft are quickly dispelled, however, as an intense spine of trademark Chablisian limestone cuts across the palate. While this bottle is a great candidate for your cellar, don’t feel guilty about popping the cork right away if the mood strikes.
