June 8, 2015 - this really has perked up nicely. A deeper straw color as it has aged. Very, very accessible right now. Decent acidity from limes good amount of mineral, smell and taste of orchard fruit yellow sweet delicious apple and some Asian pear. A very deft touch of oak and a decent length on finish with some salinity.
I wish I had held all three bottles this long.1 person found this helpful Comment

September 19, 2014 - Really a product of the warm '09 vintage. lower acidity than you would hope for, but acceptable. Mineral is present, similar to its locale near chambolle-montrachet. The fruit is orchard in style and a touch of pitted fruit on both the nose and palate. Nice golden straw colors, and well integrated touches of oak. A very good table wine, that doesn't necessarily need food to be consumed do to lower acids then say, Chablis. It did pair nicely with Coulummiers cheese with crushed raspberry topping and some basic charcuterie.1 person found this helpful Comment

September 16, 2014 - This has integrated nicely since I last had it...pears, a hint of lemon curd, and just enough acidity. It seems a bit dilute though, even for a village wine. I guess I was expecting more from boillot regardless.

March 10, 2014 - Great QPR! This would beat out most village wines. After 4 years this wine has developed some complexity and still vibrant with a solid core of minerality and acidity.

December 6, 2013 - Fin røykaktig mineralitet bak årgangens litt feite, sødmefulle frukt. Flott friskhet. Vellykket BB, tightere enn forrige flaske. Trives best ved lave temperaturer. 87p.
