Pierrick Laroche Chablis Grand Cru 'Bougros' 2020Regular price $172.00
Green apples is the theme interspersed with flint, hints of marmalade dance at the edge (more rind than pith), acidity, honey, citrus and stonefruit drive the palate.
Bougros is the last Grand Cru on the western side of the hill and enjoys a south to south-westerly exposition. Pierrick’s parcel comes from the western end of Bougros, towards the top of the hill where the slope is only about 5%. Vinified in stainless steel, it was matured for 8 months in one old 500 litre barrel, adding an extra dimension of complexity to complement the profoundly concentrated fruit from this exceptional site. An outstanding Grand Cru.
