Jean-Claude Boisset Chambolle-Musigny 2004
Since 2002, Mr Boisset’s son, Jean-Charles Boisset, has transformed Boisset from a traditional négociant into a viniculteur, a cross between a viticulturalist and a vinifier. Jean-Charles set his sights on hiring one of the best of the younger generation of winemakers to revitalise the J.C. Boisset wines, twenty nine year old Gregory Patriat, who had spent the previous three years at Domaine Leroy. Patriat spends a great deal of his time in the vineyards, and pays the growers by the hectare, rather than by tonnage, in order to ensure low yields. He also prefers to work with organic growers, as he finds they produce better fruit. “40% of the growers we work with are organic, but only 5% of Burgundy’s growers are organic,” says Patriat. This Pinot is relatively deep colour with perfumes of dark berries on the nose. On the palate it is intense and powerful, with blackcurrant and blueberry fruit characters, ripe, rounded tannins supporting the fruit and a long, elegant finish.
Rich plum-wood hue, aromas of wet leather, stewed cherries and earth spice, notes of black plums, black cherries and vanilla, opening to a rich mid-palate expression of black stone fruits, and leading to a very long, silky and flavored finish.
