Chambertin H. Boillot 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright medium ruby, a bit less saturated than the Clos de Beze. Great wild, soil-inflected nose combines black raspberry, licorice, minerals, crushed stone, leather, mocha, spices and game, all lifted by a pungent peppery nuance. The palate offers utterly compelling sappy sweetness, with outstanding energy to its extremely intense but primary flavors. Combines great power with an essentially gentle character. The impression of sappiness carries through to the saline, minerally, extremely long finish, which features suave, noble tannins. Boillot describes this wine as "easier and greater than the Clos de Beze."...94-97" IWC 1/11
