The vines used to make this wine face south southwest. The average age of the vines vary between 3 and 40 years. The soil type is limestone, which is typical of the area.
To ensure only the highest quality fruit goes into the final wine, all the grapes are hand harvested. The wine is also aged in oak barrels.The Grand Cru Bougros of Domain Vauroux needs some ten to fifteen years of ageing to express its typical character.
This is quintessential Grand Cru Chablis from an outstanding vintage. Intense and elegant on the nose the palate is immensely concentrated and complex with layers of green apple and restrained minerality. The finish is amazingly long.
Try it with boiled lobsters, sautéed langoustine with Chardonnay reduction or pork medallions with cream sauce.
