Jean-Claude Boisset Reviews

Score: 98 | November 29, 2021 |

Beautiful violet and black-cherry nose. A gentle giant that has a radical mineral and tannin structure, but also wonderful elegance, the finishing washing over you in waves that echo down the valleys. Great aging potential. Drink or hold.

Score: 95 | June 26, 2019 | Decanter

This is a first release from Jean-Claude Boisset, bottled early to preserve its freshness and perfume. Sourced from a parcel of 45-year-old vines and fermented with 50% whole bunches, it has earthy, forest floor aromas with notes of fresh tobacco and pepper spice. A tame and approachable Corton with fine, caressing tannins.

Score: 90 | March 15, 2018 | Wine Spectator

Smoky version, offering black cherry, blackberry, earth and spice flavors to match the toasty oak. This is succulent and leaves spice and smoke notes on the finish.

Score: 96 | March 1, 2017 | Wine Spectator

This is intense, starting out on the elegant side and building slowly to attain greater density and power. Spice, raspberry and cherry flavors form the center, with a layer of chalk and stone underneath. Shows fine concentration and balance, delivering a long, minerally aftertaste.
