92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2018 Chablis Bougros Grand Cru has a limpid silvery hue. The precise, crushed-mineral, almost basalt-scented nose sports a discreet reduction that works in its favor. The palate is taut and focused, built around almost penetrating acidity that, depending upon your sensitivity, could be interpreted as razor-sharp or shrill. Fleeting glimpses of lime and tangerine appear toward the finish and counterbalance its sharpness to a degree. This is a tricky Chablis to assess, one that will require careful partnering with food and/or bottle age. I will put a question mark against my score because I want to see how that acidity shows in two or three years." 9/20


90-93 Points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Having no grands crus, the Lavantureux family are happy to make some discreet purchases of juice at this level. Fine light lemon colour, with a touch of coconut on the nose. This tends to be the first to show of the grands crus. Intense and steely and less overtly opulent on the palate." 06/19
