A good deep color with the ripest nose of all the wines. Smoky and oaky and very Pinot. Expressive with lots of richness and without much tannin. Super classy with generous, warm, dark chocolate fruit on the finish.
Located in the famous village of Pommard, Cote d’Or, Domaine Boillot is one of the leading producers in Burgundy. The estate vineyards are planted on various prestigious appellations such as Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay and Pommard.
91-93 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Jan 2014 “Bright, deep red. Lovely high-pitched aromas of cherry, raspberry and spices lifted by a minty topnote. Creamy on the attack, then tactile and highly concentrated but juicy and imploded in the middle, showing superb fruit intensity, a hint of wildness and a chewy impression of extract. Finishes firmly tannic, fresh and long, with a strong spicy quality. This wine will need time in the cellar to unwind.”
