While the 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros was inscrutable when I tasted it during its élevage a year ago, it was in fine form this spring, unwinding in the glass to reveal aromas of pear, white flowers, orange rind and peach. Medium to full-bodied, muscular and textural, it's ample and fleshy, with ripe but racy acids and fine depth at the core.

The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Côte Bouguerots has turned out very well, unwinding in the glass with bright aromas of white flowers, citrus zest, crisp orchard fruit, crushed stones and oyster shell. Medium to full-bodied, deep and tightly wound, it's racy and incisive, with bright acids and a searingly mineral finish. As usual, this is a cuvée that will appeal to Chablis purists.

The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Côte Bouguerots is very promising, revealing a pretty bouquet of white flowers, ripe citrus fruit and wet stones, followed by a full-bodied, ample but incisive palate that's racy, mineral and elegantly mordant, concluding with a long finish.

The 2018 Chablis Bougros Côte Bouguerots Grand Cru is a dense, powerful and richly textured wine endowed with tremendous power. Rich yellow orchard fruit, crushed rocks, citrus and floral notes infuse a dense, potent Chablis that marries fruit richness and intense minerality. Ample and dramatic in its tremendous scale, the 2018 is compelling, sensual and racy - wow.

Lively and steely with plenty of lime, lemon and steely undertones. It’s medium-to full-bodied, fruity and reserved at the end. Drink now.
