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 800 litre barrel.
100% oak, some 228 liter pieces, some 600 liter demi-muids. Quite simply the best Bougros I’ve ever tasted. The robustness of this Grand cru meets the elegance of 2017: a true Grand cru in the modern enlightened world.’ 97 points – Michael Edwards, World of Fine Wine, April 2019
