Description

"The 2020 Côte de Bouguerots is every bit as brilliant as the les Preuses in this vintage at Domaine Fèvre. The wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and impeccably balanced, with bottomless depth at the core, gorgeous mineral undertow, racy acids and a long, precise and perfectly balanced finish. The bouquet is young, but already stunning, as it delivers scents of pear, a touch of passion fruit, delicious apple, beeswax, a beautiful base of chalky soil tones, fruit blossoms and just a touch of paraffin in the upper register. This wine has everything one could ever ask for in a great, great example of grand cru Chablis. (Drink between 2031-2080)" 97/100, John Gilman, (11/2021)


"Côte Bouguerots is a cooler site down by the Serein River, with precipitous slopes of 45 degrees. An intense grand cru, with concentration from very low yields (25hl/ha), this displays a distinct savoury edge. It’s a very fine, persistent wine, with a very long future ahead. Drinking Window 2024 - 2037."
96/100, Andy Howard MW, Decanter, (10/2021)


"In a sense, the 2020 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Côte Bouguerots offers a resumé of several of Fèvre's grand cru bottlings, uniting the taut musculature of Valmur and the ethereal, mineral profile of Les Preuses, with some of the perfumed sensuality of Vaudésir and fleshy texture of Bougros. The result is certainly a very compelling wine, exhibiting aromas of crisp green orchard fruit, white flowers, freshly baked bread, oyster jus and white peach, followed by a full-bodied, taut and layered palate that's seamless and complete, concluding with a pungently mineral finish. It's worth a special effort to seek out, though a decade's patience is warmly advised. The 2020 vintage makes the first year of official organic conversion for 78-hectare Domaine William Fèvre, though it's actually the 15th year the estate has been practicing organic. Didier Séguier reported that the year's challenges were twofold: having to pick harvest dates with unerring precision, and the necessity to sort out sunburnt grapes. The results, however, are once again exceptional, and it's hard to think of any of Chablis's larger estates that can match Fèvre for consistency and quality across the board. The 2020s, as ever bottled under Diam, are certainly built to evolve gracefully, but they will also show their cards sooner than the spectacular but hyper-concentrated 2019s.
96/100, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, (7/2021)
