($80; just racked; a moderate 12.7% alcohol) Cloudy appearance. Pineapple, spiced apple and mint on the nose; more exotic than the Montee de Tonnerre. Sweet on entry, then dense and firmly structured in the middle palate, even a bit youthfully hard despite the fact that this is entirely free-run juice. The sweetness returns on the finish, which features lovely lingering pineapple and floral perfume.

From the eastern portion of the Bougros - below Preuses - the Verget 2006 Chablis Bougros emphasizes the savory, subtly sweet, crustacean side of minerality just has have several of the most dramatically expressive wines from Preuses this vintage. Tart apricot and lime offer a rather brash and unexpected contrast with a voluminous and slightly warm palate. Certainly the overall level of concentration is impressive, and 15% new barrels not noticeable, but there is a sort of sweet-tart dichotomy that needs to resolve itself. (A Cote de Bouqueyreaud bottling from the easternmost and steepest portion of Bougros was also marked by a bit of heat and a generally disorganized personality on the occasion of my tasting, so I have reserved judgment on it for now.)

About This Producer


When he created Verget in 1990, Jean-Marie Guffens applied the very same rules as for his own production. Verget's philosophy can be summed up in one simple sentence: "the best wine comes from the best grapes." This elementary saying is the corner stone of Verget. Thus, whether in Maconnais, Chablis or Cote d'Or, the best vineyards and best terroirs are selected to produce quality wines.
