Jean Marc Brocard Chablis 'Bougros' Grand Cru 2021

Product description

As a perfectionist, Jean-Marc Brocard naturally erected his purpose-built cellars in the centre of his vineyard to give the grapes his constant attention. Such dedication together with the best quality Chablis soil produce an exceptional wine with a typical mineral style. It is elegant and full of character.

Aromatically the wine is expressive with nuances of barely ripe mango, passion fruit, tropical flowers, and fine vanilla. On the palate, the wine is textured and weighty with a creamy mid-palate as well as a lingering balance of flowers and snappy minerality.

Pair with poultry, foie gras, stir-fried vegetables, or a Saint-Jacques skewer.

92 Points - Vinous

The 2021 Chablis Bougros Grand Cru has an attractive bouquet with scents of honeysuckle, struck flint and light wild peach scents. I admire the purity here. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity, quite taut on the entry with modest depth. There is a sense of strictness on the finish in keeping with the style of the millesime, though there is fine length and a touch of residual spiciness that lingers on the aftertaste.
