Chablis Grand Cru
The Nicolle family doesn't have any Grand Cru holdings of their own, but had a desire to produce a Grand Cru cuvée. The Grand Cru Bougros comes from purchased fruit. The terroir shines through here, resulting in a grandly epic bottle of Chardonnay. This cuvée is the only wine that is aged 100% in barrel.
