Chablis Bougros Piuze 2017 (750ML)
92-94 Points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros exhibits notes of lemon oil, confit citrus, iodine and anise, framed by light reduction. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, glossy and textural, retaining plenty of cut and tension despite its gourmand profile; it's a bit firmer and more structured than the expansive Blanchot." 08/18
"An appealingly well-layered nose mixes notes of green fruit, mineral reduction and various citrus elements with a hint of lemongrass. The lavishly rich full-bodied flavors coat the palate with sappy dry extract while displaying impressive power and punch on the beautifully complex and sneaky long finish. This won't win any awards for refinement but the depth here is first-rate." 10/18
94 Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar: "The vineyard of Bougros can often be the most sumptuous and fruit forward Chablis grand cru in its youth, but often without quite the spine of minerality that defines the other grand crus. However, this is not the case with the 2017 from Patrick Piuze, which is racy, precise and very, very transparent this year and one of the best young examples of this vineyard that I have had the pleasure to taste. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a refined blend of pear, lemon, grapefr4uit, chalky soil tones, white flowers and a youthful topnote of citrus peel. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and full, with a fine core, excellent mineral drive this year, bright, snappy acids and excellent length and grip on the nascently complex finish. Outstanding Bougros! 2022-2060+" 12/18
Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2017 Chablis Bougros Grand Cru, made with tiny yields this year, is reduced from 16 to 4 barrels. It has a very powerful bouquet with honeysuckle, orange pith and fresh pear aromas that soar from the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, more tension than the Blanchots with a saline finish. This is a finely crafted Chablis that revels in its Grand Cru status." 08/18
