Wine Critic Reviews:

In the rarefied air of the Fevre 2016 grand crus, it really is hard to choose a favorite, as they are all stunning examples of their underlying terroirs. The 2016 Côte de Bouguerots is a brilliant young wine, wafting from the glass in a fine aromatic blend of pear, apple, fresh lime, flinty and chalky minerality and a potpourri of white flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, concentrated and racy, with great focus and cut, impeccable balance and a very long, nascently complex and energetic finish. Great juice.

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.

Robert Parker Neal Martin | 95 RP-NM
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.

Vinous Media | 95 VM
A super-fresh, cool and admirably pure nose exhibits notes of iodine, citrus, white rose petal, sea breeze and mineral reduction scents. Like several wines in the range I very much like the lovely texture of the energetic medium weight flavors that also possess fine concentration before terminating in an intensely saline-infused, balanced and wonderfully long finale.

Burghound | 94 BH
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.

James Suckling | 93 JS
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.

Decanter | 92 DEC
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.
