Great complexity on the bouquet, with a robust structure and well weighted mouthfeel.
Pairs well with fish, shellfish and other seafood, grilled or in a cream sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce.
"This is a big step up in refinement, particularly aromatically with an abundance of oyster shell and tidal pool nuances that add breadth to the white flower, citrus and Chablis-style green fruit. The rich, powerful and mouth coating flavors possess real drive but also beautiful detail on the intensely mineral-driven finish that possesses outstanding length. This is really quite dry, at least within the context of the 2009 vintage. In a word, terrific."
"The 2009 Chablis Bougros Cote Bougerots is made from a steep, south-facing parcel in Bougros. It shows fabulous intensity and depth in its round, generous fruit. This really fills out on the mid-palate and finish. The radiance of the fruit makes this one of the more approachable 2009 grand crus for near and mid-term drinking, although it may age quite a bit longer based on the sheer density of its fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019."
The Wine Advocate
"Very pale green-tinged yellow. Aromatically exuberant nose projects lime oil, white pepper and white flowers. Unctuous and sweet, with good citrus energy but less dimension than I usually find in this cuvee--and less complex than the 2010 version. A rather powerful vin de plaisir that comes across as a tad phenolic today. The 2009 vintage may not have been ideal for this full south-facing parcel. "
