    April 16, 2013 - France 2013 - Chablis (Chablis): Tasted at the Domaine. From half bottle. Slightly fresher nose than the 2003 but still oxidized. Mature flavours, rich honey, bit of chalkiness on the finish. Some caramel on the palate too with hints of butterscotch on the finish. Has better acidity than the 2003 but still this is over the hill in my opinion.

    September 19, 2010 - Very generous apricot and peach fruit; decent length and lovely minerality. But ultimately this was a less exciting than any of us was hoping and just not quite special enough to merit great excitement

    April 24, 2010 - Terkel BYO: Nose: Rotten eggs, wet dog!, burnt butter.
    Palate: A little watery but has a little burnt pineapple. Seems very old. A strange wine. Chamomile tea.

    September 8, 2006 - Mid colour, some evolution. Good weight but like the first half of this it lacks Grand Cru persistence of fruit and flavour in the mid palate. Slightly simple. OK, but not disappointed this was the last bottle.

  • SimonG wrote:

    June 5, 2006 - Mid colour, lovely intensity and purity of fruit, minerals and a slight sweetness on the mid-palate. Noticably better than the previous half. Lovely wine, not top flight but very good indeed. Now +

    (William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Bougros) Very pale colour. The nose is quite intense, yet has a restrained feel to it. This is quite an achievement, as it bears rich aromas of honey and pineapple, with an oatmealy edge. Similarly impressive on the palate, with elegant structure and acidity, and firm layers of mineral fruit, which are initially very tight and take some time to open out. There's a complex and mealy feel to it all, with the suggestion of some oak influence. With some aeration this wine is approachable now, but will benefit from further bottle age. Drink 2005 onwards.
