  • 2006 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    First bottle of four bought on purchase.
    This shows fresh red berries, and some spices. It's very fruit driven with a rather toneless mid-palate and a lacklustre structure. It is resting on sweet and ripe red fruit albeit showing good freshness but this lacks vinous character and structure. A disappointment.

  • 2009 Henri Boillot Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets

    Henri Boillot and whites: a big tick.
    Henri Boillot and reds, this is more a work in progress for me. I've had a couple of older vintages. I've been buying for the last few years, opened only one the bottles I bought (2011 Volnay) just to have a peek. I tasted at the Domaine in 2013 and certainly loved the wines there which, for 2011s, were excellent to outstanding.
    So, this is my first serious look at red Boillot from my cellar.
    Pop and pour and straight from the cellar (13 degrees celsius). This is immediately fragrant and floral; spicy red fruit, with deep and rich plums, some savoury and stony notes. This is a very complex and enchanting bouquet. On palate, this has initially a slight spritziness but beyond that the palate is vibrant, rich, mid-weight but complex long and presents detail and focus. The tannins are fine and ripe and the moth feel layers and supple.
    This is very smart winemaking; there is a complexing reductive element which does not detract but adds complexity. Excellent wine.

  • 2009 Azienda Agricola Elvio Cogno Barolo Bricco Pernice

    Deep and dense core: a baby. Restrained and beautifully balanced aromas of truffle, fragrant red berries, savoury notes. The striking dimension of this wine is the perfectly pure floral and fragrant aromas. Plenty of fruit in the mouth with fine tannins which make the wine deceptively approachable. This is has concentration and finesse and plenty of subtle structure in which to expand. This is infanticide but I have no regrets! A great wine is always there even in its youth.
