William Fèvre Chablis Bougros Côtes de Bouguerots Grand Cru 2022

William Fevre 2022 en primeur - wimbledon wine cellar

5 Star Wine, 93-97 pts Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy: A glowing pale lemon and lime. Sunny and fresh at the same time, with an extraordinary tension on the nose. Still a wine of discretion, Didier has made wines which completely avoid heaviness while still delivering all that is necessary in concentration and backbone. Sublime persistence. Drink from 2032-2040+. Tasted: June 2023

93-95 pts, Allen Meadows, Burghound: This is the coolest and most restrained of this group of 2022s with its elegant aromas of prominent mineral reduction, lemon-lime, spice and oyster shell. There is almost painful intensity to the intensely stony and strikingly well-detailed larger-bodied yet still beautifully refined flavors that display huge length on the impeccably well-balanced finale. Like the Preuses, this is very classy and built to repay extended keeping.

96/100, Andy Howard MW, Decanter: The very steep aspect of Côte Bouguerots is highlighted by a much greater emphasis on minerality than Fevre's Bougros. This is a grand cru is every way - so much drive on the palate with plenty of extract, concentration, salinity and length. Certain to keep very well but this is also surprisingly approachable early on. DIdier Seguier says it's likely to close down after 18-24 months but this is clearly a fine example with masses of potential.

93-95 pts, Neal Martin, MW, Vinous: The 2022 Chablis Bougros Cote Bouguerots Grand Cru has a clean and precise bouquet with hints of wild peach, apricot blossom, Mirabelle, and crushed stone. The palate is well-balanced with a very harmonious entry, blackcurrant leaf and spice, crushed stone and what feels like plenty of extract on the finish. This has great potential but afford it time in your cellar. (Drinking 2026-2048)
