    October 12, 2017 - Moderate reduction on the nose. This is a softer and subtler Boillot wine. than most. There are aromas of lemon curd and pear on the nose. The palate doesn't show too much bracing acidity; this is integrated and a little less sharp and piercing. There's a nice fatness on the palate as well. Perhaps it's the modicum of age that this bottle has under its belt that has given it this roundness; in any case, it is delicious now, and if the pox doesn't strike this wine, bound to get better.

    September 22, 2017 - My favorite premier cru white Burg along with the Ramonet Ruchottes.

    30 minutes opened. Beautiful pure pale gold color. Rather subdued nose with soft citrus notes, faint banana, fresh spearmint, white flowers and minerals. One sip, holy shit. Incredibly creamy, sensual and seamless in the mouth. Fabulous texture with balanced concentration, grand cru length and weight. Whoa. A kaleidoscope of flavors: Limes, lemons, more limes, spearmint, grapefruit, tangerines, white peach skin, flint. Then a huge wave of intense mineral acidity cut right down the center. Incredible tension. The minerality I can only describe as like beef jerky thing. Maybe it’s me, can’t explain otherwise, just go with it, I eat a lot of jerky. Becomes more citrusy, minerally and minty with a sour note on the back end as if you were sucking on a lemon peel and spearmint wrapped wet stone. OMFG so good. Is this still going in my mouth? Yes, yes it is. Fans out like a Floyd Money Mayweather cash roll. So good. Oh so good. And oh so young. Mouth is still watering. Hasn’t’ hit the second gear in terms of tertiary complexity but will get there in time. Patience required. Lucky to experience a great bottle! 95+

    July 4, 2017 - Oxidized. This had such promise.

    March 14, 2017 - Pale yellow. Aromatics of lime, peach, white flowers and a hint of matchstick soar from the glass. Medium-bodied in the mouth, with lots of lemons, lime and powdered stone that lead to a very long, minerally finish that seems to linger forever. This is painfully young, but oh so promising. A textbook white Burgundy that is on the upswing. 95.

    January 16, 2017 - pnp from 375ml, first of these that gave me pause. Not oxidized at all but more advanced than others I've had. More yellow fruit, less minerality. Still with the flint finish so while very good, not as exciting as I've recently had.
