Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Cote de Bouguerots has a very intense, quite mineral-driven bouquet with flint aromas developing all the time in the glass as it gains intensity. The palate is well balanced with fine salinité on the entry. I appreciate the vivacity of this grand cru—there is plenty of energy locked in here and an edginess on the finish that is very appealing, notwithstanding the prolonged spicy aftertaste. Superb.
Barrel Sample: 93-95
V 95
Vinous
Very pale green-tinged yellow. Classic Chablis scents and flavors of white peach, ginger, oyster shell, iodine and flint. Highly concentrated, tactile wine offering an impression of strong dry extract and a compelling combination of pliancy and energy. A very powerful, structured Chablis with a long, chewy, saline finish. Really saturates the palate without leaving any impression of weightiness. Offers splendid potential.
Barrel Sample: 93-95

Three producers in Chablis bottle wine under this label (or a slight variation of its spelling). Generally considered the best bit of Bougros, it’s located close to the river and has corresponding freshness. Flinty and aromatic, this has some of the power and weight of the Grand Cru, but finishes with a swagger of acidity. Sure to age well in bottle, this is a good Chablis to slip into a blind tasting. 2019-26

James Suckling
Lemon butter and almond pastry from time spent in four- to six-year-old barrels. Sweetly fragrant white flowers and a fine minerally thread. This makes a very composed, fresh and sleek impression on the palate. Long and slightly fleshy white-peach finish. Drink or hold.
D 92
Decanter
The Côte de Bouguerots’ bouquet of apple, pear and candied lemon definitely shows a touch of oak from its time in used cooperage, lending the wine the illusion of a riper fruit profile and occluding some of its site expression. On the palate the wine is very minerally and taut, with a bright line of acidity and a fine-grained, saline finish. I would love to see this raised in some older barrels, or barrels from a different cooperage, as the raw materials are superb.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Apple, lemon and stone flavors mingle in this linear white. Though subtle, this remains focused, lingering through the finish. Drink now through 2023. 100 cases imported.

The source of the most racy, light and tactile, yet uniquely complex Chardonnay, Chablis, while considered part of Burgundy, actually reaches far past the most northern stretch of the Côte d’Or proper. Its vineyards cover hillsides surrounding the small village of Chablis about 100 miles north of Dijon, making it actually closer to Champagne than to Burgundy. Champagne and Chablis have a unique soil type in common called Kimmeridgian, which isn’t found anywhere else in the world except southern England. A 180 million year-old geologic formation of decomposed clay and limestone, containing tiny fossilized oyster shells, spans from the Dorset village of Kimmeridge in southern England all the way down through Champagne, and to the soils of Chablis. This soil type produces wines full of structure, austerity, minerality, salinity and finesse.

Chablis Grands Crus vineyards are all located at ideal elevations and exposition on the acclaimed Kimmeridgian soil, an ancient clay-limestone soil that lends intensity and finesse to its wines. The vineyards outside of Grands Crus are Premiers Crus, and outlying from those is Petit Chablis. Chablis Grand Cru, as well as most Premier Cru Chablis, can age for many years.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
