Gevrey Chambertin 2015 Domaine Louis Boillot
|Brand||Domaine Louis Boillot|
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2015 Gevrey Chambertin Village comes from eight parcels scattered around the appellation (Mon. Boillot did list them for me, but let's say they are from respectable lieux-dits and the average age of vine is 50 years). The bouquet is cohesive and focused with plenty of ripe mulberry and red plum fruit laced with subtle damp earth aromas. The palate is nimble on its toes: very well balanced with fine poise, crisp red cherry and strawberry with a judicious amount of salinity urging you back for another sip on the finish. Excellent.

There is a hint of the sauvage present on the kirsch and earth-scented aromas. The rich, full-bodied and intense flavors possess both ample minerality and muscle before terminating in a gorgeously textured, long and impressive complex finale. Villages level Gevrey rarely gets much better than this. Highly recommended.
