1996 Chablis Bougros

flagBurgundy / France

Guffens' Chablis offerings continue to enthrall me. Guffens most stunning Chablis in 1996 is the Chablis Bougros, a testimony to the greatness of the vintage and to his brilliant winemaking. It exhibits sublime lemon, mineral, flower, and wet stone aromatics as well as a feminine, silky, refined, classy, and medium-to-full-bodied personality. Raspberries, currants, roses, flint, and flavors reminiscent of a massive bouquet of freshly cut spring flowers are found in this complex and detailed beauty. Guffens put it best, "I decided to throw away the Chardonnay and keep the flowers." I suggest cellaring this gem until 2003 at the earliest, and drinking it over the subsequent 12 years.
