"The Piuze 2008 Chablis Bougros Cote de Bouqueyreaux (employing the longest-available spelling of that site name!) is another of his bottles that’s mineral from stem to stern. Brine, oyster shell, and iodine as well as suggestions of kelp and beach detritus render this reminiscent of the corresponding “Terroir de Courgis” bottling except with more richness and vividness of flavor. And here, too, there is an impression of consuming the oyster’s liqueur, so vivid that I wonder if you would be able to tell where the oyster’s delectable bathwater leaves off and the sip of wine begins. A tactile, invigorating persistence of lemon oil and myriad mineral impingements persists implacably; yet, sheer saliva inducement keeps the wine from seeming hard. This ought to be utterly fascinating to follow over the next 6-8 years if not longer. 91 Points." - David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate
