Community Tasting Notes (average 90.4 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 37 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by etyc on 2/4/2015: This was decanted for almost an hour+. Wow, it was certainly incredible/impressive! Highly perfumy nose of white-flowers, nectarines, honey. Fanned out on the palate - peaches, pears, flowers etc... a most wonderful elixir, so very nice! Length was very commendable as well! (2103 views)
 Tasted by western on 2/2/2015 & rated 93 points: Same notes as in 2012. Still needs 4/5 yrs.Lovely juice. (1693 views)
 Tasted by KVM on 1/6/2015: 2 bottles are consistent. Gunpowder dominates for the first hour and then white fruit and wet rock. The fresh fruit and fennel is well balanced with the mineral and acid. Very good! (1931 views)
 Tasted by pablopilot on 12/9/2014 & rated 90 points: Still a very good wine but not getting any better. I'll be hitting this hard over the next year or so... (2116 views)
 Tasted by rsbeck on 8/2/2014 & rated 93 points: From .375. Pop and pour, consumed over next 60 minutes. Started out dull, flat, and fat, but with lots of swirling it came around, tightened up, gained precision and focus. The final sips were quite nice; mixed citrus, pear, white peach and chalky limestone. Score is for final sips. (3225 views)
 Tasted by rsbeck on 6/16/2014 & rated 94 points: From .375, Consistent with previous notes. Lovely. (2698 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 5/25/2014 & rated 93 points: Pre-Memorial Day Wine Before/During/After Dinner (Chicago, IL): Floral start with ripe peach and apricot with hints of orange peel, spice and a trace of mint in the background. Ripe and lush stone fruit again on palate, with subtle structural elements providing good balance. Very good now. (3228 views)
 Tasted by gouldcampbell77 on 4/27/2014 & rated 85 points: Blinds down, shutters closed, no one home. (3029 views)
 Tasted by theharve on 4/7/2014 & rated 89 points: getting better, try in 2 yrs. (3038 views)
 Tasted by Taffi on 3/14/2014 & rated 90 points: God vin! Fin syre som er typisk for Boillet familien og som i mange andre årganger kan bli for mye av det gode. I 2009 som generelt er litt syrefattig er det dog en fin balanse. Drikker ok allerede i dag som de fleste hvite 09 og jeg er litt skeptisk til å lagre disse alt for lenge, men man vet jo aldri............ (2371 views)
 Tasted by rsbeck on 2/14/2014 & rated 94 points: Popped, poured, consumed over next 90 minutes. This bottle, a .375, performed beautifully. I did not get any of the sulphur cited in other notes. I got a kaleidoscope of citrus, pear, and stone fruit/white peach with a riverbed full of stony minerals, a touch of chalk, a sprinkling of vanilla/French Oak spice and a tiny bit of orange blossom on the rich, round, well balanced finish. Very satisfying now and seems packed for future evolution. 94+ (2259 views)
 Tasted by Taffi on 1/21/2014 & rated 89 points: Som vanlig svært syrerike viner fra denne produsenten og det selv i en normalt syresvak årgang som 2009. Ganske god viner som nok bær lagres noen år til. (2416 views)
 Tasted by Jeremy Holmes on 11/1/2013: Plenty of struck match to the aroma. This wine possesses the most pure of white peach aromas and flavours. It is rich and sappy and crammed with minerals. It has great shape and terrific intensity. The finish is loaded with a big puff of chalk and drives on hard and long. (3244 views)
 Tasted by johnh1001 on 10/20/2013 & rated 91 points: Serious serious matchstick, flint and wet stones on the nose. Very pronounced. Full rich citrus and buttered popcorn on the palate. Medium depth and finish. (2897 views)
 Tasted by pablopilot on 10/19/2013 & rated 90 points: Really tasty, lots of body and butter -- a little flabby, low on the acidity. I want this wine to be racier and more thrilling. It was satisfying, but not thrilling. (2604 views)
 Tasted by Enfantterrible on 10/12/2013 & rated 91 points: Very strong sulfur on opening. I tried pouring between glasses to aerate and get rid of it, which proved almost impossible. Drank about half the bottle and then corked it, thinking that Mr Meadows had gotten this one wrong.

On Day 3, the wine is drinking very nicely. Hold on to these for a few more years, I think patience will be rewarded here. (2419 views)
 Tasted by DAVIDMAC on 9/21/2013 & rated 92 points: Consumed blind at "Club" dinner . Powerul , oaky,not a lot of fruit. Good but not great. (2500 views)
 Tasted by ttuominen on 6/28/2013 & rated 94 points: Tasted blind. Very yellow colour, golden. What power on the nose! Lots of everything, minerals, citrus, smoke, flowers, butter, yellow apples. On the palate, great acidity, apples, citrus, lots of honey notes. Impressive length. Extremely fresh, great concentration, lovely complexity. 94-95pts. (2840 views)
 Tasted by KVM on 5/28/2013 & rated 91 points: Toasty oak. Light yellow. Appley fruit. This is exciting with great tension. Next day the wine shows mint, too. (1200 views)
 Tasted by theharve on 4/19/2013 & rated 86 points: this was good on release but no mas closing up or going south?
time will tell (2 years) (2919 views)
 Tasted by essconsults on 2/18/2013 & rated 89 points: This is my second bottle of this, both from .375s. Very oaky/sulphur driven nose and palate, as others have described. Much less open than my first bottle; hard to figure this as such a huge scorer, but it's perhaps still early days. (3605 views)
 Tasted by Pointchaser on 2/16/2013 & rated 75 points: Heavily reduced. Might have been a very nice wine if it wasn't reeking of sulphur. Supposedly this dissipates over time but not soon enough to keep the wine from ruining dinner. (3205 views)
 Tasted by Decaturwinedude on 11/21/2012 & rated 91 points: A good bit of sulfur to the nose initially, but with time that dissipates leaving behind a rather detailed and chiseled young wine. This some richness to the palate, but a nice edgy texture too. Very good wine that I think we dismissed early on. Later in the evening and day two it was great. Long life ahead if it doesn't premox. (4279 views)
 Tasted by western on 8/19/2012 & rated 92 points: Very light yellow color. Nose offers up a little matchstick with toasty oak, citrus, spice, flowers. Again oak on palate but combined with Intense tight fruit rapped in a mantle of amazing mineral acidity. Needs 4/5 years to really show its skirts. A great 1er PM in the making. (3960 views)
 Tasted by melzar on 7/30/2012 & rated 88 points: Not much to add that isn't still applicable from my last tasting of this wine. One can only hope bottle age will bring this baby around, but it needn't taste this closed to be ageworthy. I fear that the reductive notes may never folly resolve. (3622 views)

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
