A pretty, ripe and agreeably fresh nose offers up mostly floral and white-fleshed fruit scents though there is a hint of peach present as well. There is fine density and a lovely mouth feel to the round yet vibrant middle weight flavors that exude a very fine bead of minerality that adds a touch of lift to the nicely balanced finale. This is already drinking well but this could be held for a few years first in the interest of developing a bit more overall depth. 89/2017+
Jean-Claude Boisset Reviews
Initially there is a mild trace of reduction but 5 minutes of air is all that’s required to clean it up and in the process to reveal a mix of dark berry, black cherry and violet scents. There is good volume and an attractive mouth feel to the delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess solid complexity on the lingering finish. This is a bolder style of Chambolle but what it lacks in finesse it makes up for in character. A good if not excellent villages that could be enjoyed young if desired thanks to the fine density of the mid-palate.
The ripe and brooding nose grudgingly reveals notes of dark cherry, raspberry, violets and plenty of earth character. There is both good volume and solid mid-palate concentration to the rich but detailed medium weight flavors that deliver reasonably good depth and length on the ever-so-slightly austere finish. The dusty mouth feel and moderately firm tannic spine suggests that this will need at least 5 to 7 years of cellar time and 8 to 10 wouldn’t surprise me as this is clearly backward at the moment. I would further note that this is a good deal more concentrated and serious than is typical for the Boisset wines.
