Domaine William Fevre Chablis Bougros 2009, 750mL (BH93, WA93, ST92, WS91) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Domaine William Fevre Chablis Bougros

750mL

Vintage: 2009
Region: France--Burgundy--White
Appellation: Chablis

BH93, WA93, ST92, WS91
Rated 93 points by the Burghound: `Somewhat curiously, in 2009 this is actually more elegant than is typical with a ripe, pure and pretty nose of apple and white orchard fruit aromas that lead to dense, powerful and muscular broad-scaled flavors that manage to keep fine detail on the palate staining finish. This is a big wine and while it?s by no means as refined as the Cote de Bouguerots, it?s not heavy or overtly rustic either.` -- Allen MeadowsMore Information from the Burghound: `Regisseur Didier Seguier describes 2010 as a vintage `where we had an extended flowering, which of course results in uneven maturities. This isn?t necessarily a bad thing as long as you have good harvest weather because you don?t have to rush to harvest everything at the same time. In this case though the extended flowering resulted in a lot of shatter and shot berries, so between the two we were down between 30% and in the case of Valmur, fully 50% in yields. The weather leading up to the harvest was warm and quite sunny but not especially hot and the state of the grapes was on the fragile side, which is to say that we weren?t at all sure that we might not have an attack of botrytis. As we often do, we elected to start picking relatively early on September 20th and managed to get 75% of the crop in before the rain fell on the 25th. For the fruit picked after the 25th, we did some sorting work but nothing that required more than normal exigency. Yields were in the 32 to 35 hl/ha range except for the Valmur which was barely 28. Sugars were perfectly good as potential alcohols ranged from 11.5 to 12.5%, which is just fine given the style that we wish to make. The alcoholic fermentations proceeded normally though themalos were very long and most did not finish until April. Post-malo pHs were ideal in the 3.15 to 3.2 range, which is about what we obtained in 2008.` As to the now in-bottle 2009s, in several cases they are even better than my predicted ranges suggested, particularly at the grand cru level. Consistent with the cork changes that were reported in Issues 42 and 43 in the sections regarding Bouchard Pere et Fils (see the database), Fevre has elected to bottle its entire range, including the grands crus, under the Diam cork. Note further that effective with the 2008 vintage the label for the Vaulorent no longer indicates Fourchaume on it; previously it said `Fourchaume - Vignoble de Vaulorent`. Two other points bear mentioning: one, all of the upper level wines see 100% oak but none of it is new and two, there is no lees stirring ever, a policy that was stopped in 1998.`
