94-97 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Glowing lemon and lime, this is very promising. The nose keeps drawing out more and more. This is the most complete wine among the William Fèvre 2018s to date. There is a lively fresh yellow fruit, with a huge but even distribution across the palate. Hillside minerals perfectly in place, and it stays light on its feet. With such energy!! Retasted after Les Preuses it shows even more vibrancy. Tasted: May 2019."

96 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "One of three producers in Chablis to bottle wine under this label (or a slight variation of its spelling), this comes from what is generally considered the best bit of Bougros, on a slope close to the River Serein. Picked early in 2018, this is fresher and more refined than it can be in warmer vintages, showing beeswax and citrus perfume, refined oak and lingering freshness. Drinking Window: 2020-2028. (Jul 2019)"

94-96 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Chablis Bougros Côte Bouguerots Grand Cru is a dense, powerful and richly textured wine endowed with tremendous power. Rich yellow orchard fruit, crushed rocks, citrus and floral notes infuse a dense, potent Chablis that marries fruit richness and intense minerality. Ample and dramatic in its tremendous scale, the 2018 is compelling, sensual and racy - wow. (Jan 2020)"

95 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2018 Côte de Bouguerots is also superb in this vintage, and is very, very elegant in profile out of the blocks. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a blend of fresh lime, pear, apple, chalky soil tones, apple blossoms and a topnote of beeswax. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and impeccably balanced, with a rock solid core of fruit, laser-like focus and outstanding mineral drive on the long, snappy and complex finish. Stunning juice. 2025-2065. (Nov/Dec 2019)"

93-95 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros Côte Bouguerots is very promising, revealing a pretty bouquet of white flowers, ripe citrus fruit and wet stones, followed by a full-bodied, ample but incisive palate that's racy, mineral and elegantly mordant, concluding with a long finish. (Aug 2019)"

93-95 points and 'Don't miss!' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a 2.2 ha parcel at the bottom section of the vineyard; even so, the vineyard is so steep here that it must be worked entirely by hand as tractors would be dangerous to use). A pure essence is comprised by notes of white flowers, citrus, mineral reduction and a gentle application of wood. The racy, intense and equally refined middle weight flavors are also super-saline while exhibiting superb length on the balanced, youthfully austere and very dry finale. This will need to add depth over the next few years to merit the top end of my projected range but the underlying material appears to be up to the task. (Oct 2019)"

94 points James Suckling: "Lively and steely with plenty of lime, lemon and steely undertones. It’s medium-to full-bodied, fruity and reserved at the end. Drink now. (8/25/20)"
