Glowing lemon and lime, this is very promising. The nose keeps drawing out more and more. This is the most complete wine among the William Fèvre 2018s to date. There is a lively fresh yellow fruit, with a huge but even distribution across the palate. Hillside minerals perfectly in place, and it stays light on its feet. With such energy!! Retasted after Les Preuses it shows even more vibrancy. Jasper Morris – Inside Burgundy

One of three producers in Chablis to bottle wine under this label (or a slight variation of its spelling), this comes from what is generally considered the best bit of Bougros, on a slope close to the River Serein. Picked early in 2018, this is fresher and more refined than it can be in warmer vintages, showing beeswax and citrus perfume, refined oak and lingering freshness.--Tim Atkin MW, Decanter

Hazelnut-like smokiness folds itself around lemon notes on this wine's creamy nose. The palate comes in with rounded pear, portraying the juicy ripeness of 2018 but grounding it in layered, yeasty, chalky and smoky depth. Oaky nuttiness adds extra dimension while lemon freshness makes for luminous length. Drink by 2045. Anne Krebiehl MW – Wine Enthusiast

Note: from a 2.2 ha parcel at the bottom section of the vineyard; even so, the vineyard is so steep here that it must be worked entirely by hand as tractors, or even horses, would be dangerous to use
Tasting note: A pure essence is comprised by notes of white flowers, citrus, mineral reduction and a gentle application of wood. The racy, intense and equally refined middle weight flavors are super-saline while exhibiting superb length on the balanced, youthfully austere and very dry finale. This will need to add depth over the next few years, but the underlying material appears to be up to the task. This is very classy juice of refinement and understatement. Allen Meadows – Burghound

The 2018 Chablis Bougros Côte Bouguerots Grand Cru is definitely Fèvre’s best cuvée this vintage. It has a razor-sharp nose that you might attribute to a cooler growing season, offering scents of green apple and struck flint and subtle peachy notes that remain in the background. The palate displays exquisite balance and a perfect line of acidity. Harmonious and poised, it gently fans out toward the finish, deftly remaining on that liminal point between austerity and flavor. This is an impressive Chablis from one of its most propitious vineyards.-- Neal Martin – Vinous Media

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. William Kelley – The Wine Advocate

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.--James Suckling 

Intriguing nose with a touch of oyster shell, and hints of apples and stones – nothing sticking out. Delicate, silky texture and focus of orchard fruit. Not the most dense but a very elegant expression. Elegant and creamy. --(TJ), JancisRobinson
