compared to my previous note, it has more oxidated nose this time. Buttery, not exactly precise but it has a great minerality and freshness.
long lasting finish, great QPR

Almost amber colour, the nose it's a kind of marine breath together with orange and lemon notes and some floral nuances. In the mouth it is still woody as 1 year ago, spicy with ripe peach and still orange, some maroon honey, very savory and mineral. Very long on the salty notes. Great QPR maybe I should have rated it 1 point more..

always in love for this NV BdB..
I served it unfortunately too cold (about 2-3 degrees C) and I needed to wait that the wine warmed up so to let him express properly on the nose.
I would say the nose was exactly the most pleasant experience of the tasting and pairing with a Sushi dinner.
almost golden colour (disgorgement 2018)
on the nose notes of brioche, vanilla, red apple, melon and pineapple
in the mouth fine perlage, very creamy, still the red apple together with grape fruit and some wild berries, more powerful than precise but in any case lovely stuff!! ;)
long finish on the notes of lemon zest and minerals

Winespectator / James Suckling (91)

A layered and appealingly perfumed nose is composed of red cherry, raspberry liqueur and rose petal aromas that display an undertone of warm earth. There is good volume and a sleek mouth feel to the delicious and energetic middle weight flavors that possess a slightly tough but not really drying finish. This stands a chance of aging out successfully though again I doubt that it will ever be better than very good.

John Gilman: 93+ Points

Monsieur Boillot’s vines in Champonnets are now forty-five years of age and as Louis observes “they are just starting now as they have reached an age where the vines are interesting and produce really good fruit.” The 2016 Champonnets is a very floral and elegant young Gevrey offering up a lovely aromatic constellation of red plums red and black cherries raw cocoa a complex base of soil roses gamebird and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is very pure very elegant and full-bodied with a sappy core lovely soil signature suave tannins and a very long very refined and complex finish. Great juice. 2026-2075.

average of Vinous score

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. The first one of these 2016s that was obviously reduced, offering aromas of licorice, smoked meat, dark chocolate, spicecake and espresso. Concentrated, supple and sweet, combining dark fruit flavors, sexy soil tones and salty minerality. Boasts excellent inner-mouth tension to go with its size. A bit reduced throughout but cleanly made and vibrant on the back end. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

Tasted directly @ the wine cellar in Meursault, still very young but what a potential!
Almost yellow colour with some floral and pastry notes and a touch of wet stone. Very elegant and precise, some peach and citric fruits with a little honey; greedy savoury feeling and perfect mouth watering freshness, extremely long on the mineral side. In 3-4 years it will be a real bomb! (more than 91 points of now)

in the mouth not so complex as in the nose more on the ripe plum / dry plum side, tannic, good acidity, some mineral notes. good length. Stylistically it remembered me more a super Tuscan / Bolgheri than the real Bordeaux wine.

very enjoyable also this time, compared to last time, more sweetness at the end but I think, this is because of a much better aeration.
to keep in the cellar, it can age still quite a lot!
