 Tasted by Champagneinhand on 2/17/2014: A little bummed as this was really outclassed by the Von Hovel Spatlese. The Bougros showed some mineral, orchard fruit and stone, but the 2009 seemed to lack the great acidity that 2008 brought. A very clean wine and enjoyable though. (607 views)
 Tasted by Champagneinhand on 10/24/2013 & rated 92 points: Opulent and smooth orchard fruit and pitted fruits with scents of acacia and other white flowers. Serious minerals and good acidity frame this GC from a warm vintage out very nicely. Beautiful finish. Enjoyed with Coq au Vin, and also had a bottle of Fixin village. Very enjoyable evening.

 Tasted by Champagneinhand on 1/11/2013: Excellent young bottle of Bougros. Serious sea shell and saline with sublime orchard fruits of apple and peaches. White florals, great touch of citrus acidity, ending with a long smooth finish. Very little new oak makes this a pleasure to drink now. Sub $35. Again Excellent. (1039 views)

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

Jon Rimmerman: "2014 is a return to the titillating terroir punch that is only delivered in the 1er and Grand Cru vineyards that dot the slopes and hillsides of Chablis. The 2014 wines in most of Chablis are so reflective and elegantly mineral-drenched that its hard not to glug them straight away (Beaujolais had a mostly similar result in 2014 after 2012/2013 examples that were largely disappointing).

In Chablis, 2014 is the finest vintage since 2010 and it is somewhat of a hybrid of 2004/2007 and 2010. The stone, citrus and limestone amalgam is exactly what we search for in Chablis as the style harkens to a day in the Cote de Beaune proper (1960's - 1980's) when wine was not meant to be consumed the week it was released, battonage was not used by all and new oak was rarely seen.

As more and more in Burgundy are trying to curtail the thickness in their wines (from heavy new wood/malo/stirring) in favor of more transparent and lithe structures (with equal levels of fascinating material and intrigue), it can be said that the material itself must stand the test of time, not the textural impression left by the winemaker. That does not mean all texture is lost - quite the opposite - but the texture is natural and 'of the vintage' not 'of the winemaker'."
