User Reviews for Sancerre la Comtesse Boulay 94 Jg Premier

Winemaker's Notes:

"The La Comtesse bottling from Domaine Gérard Boulay comes from his oldest vines in his section of the Monts Damnés (fifty to seventy five years of age) and is barrel-fermented in old wood and also bottled unfiltered. The 2010 La Comtesse is brilliant, soaring from the glass in a very refined mélange of lemon, lime, chalky minerality, orange peel, glorious herb tones, petrol, lime blossoms and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and racy, with stunning refinement, superb mid-palate depth and a very long, complex and zesty finish...94+" JG 1/12 "Originating as usual in a particularly sweet spot low down on the Monts Damnes, Boulay’s 2010 Sancerre Comtesse leads with effusive, sweet freesia perfume, abetted by sweet lime, grapefruit, and white peach. Rich, but severely, almost hyper-concentrated on the palate, with a strong sense of bitter-edged citrus oil, it sacrifices the primary juiciness, transparency, or exchange of fruit and mineral that characterizes the best wines in the current collection (or indeed, for that matter, the vintage in Sancerre as a whole). While not alcoholically freighted – and undeniably impressively persistent – this palpably dense, persistently perfumed offering seems unlikely to achieve elegance or grace. Still, it’s a formidable contender for at least 6-8 years of bottle maturation and we’ll see what they bring. “These were the best looking and most aromatic grapes of the harvest,” notes Boulay. Perhaps somehow too good? ...90" WA 07/12
