Community Tasting Notes 5

    April 3, 2017 - I had ordered this from RWC awhile ago and it got tied up in storage. Based on the earlier tasting notes, I didn't hold out high hopes but you have to drink your supply, right? I found the wine to very good bordering on excellent. The color alone was worth it- a sparkling ruby, definitely beautiful red and no purple in sight. While the nose wasn't a knockout, some solid burgundy notes with dirt and even mushrooms. While the tannins have settled down, decent acid and wonderful cherry flavors with a sour note. While I suspect most of this is long gone, it's a good sign for other Boillot Village wines.

    December 22, 2014 - Very lean and austere with little fruit. Good acidity with lots of earth and minerality. Needs food.

    March 16, 2012 - Elegantly styled Bourgogne, very stylish. Could maybe use just a bit more mid-palate intensity. Good acidity leaves a pleasant cherry stone bitterness on the finish.

    February 25, 2012 - I imagine this could've been a decent wine last year. THIS year the nose is all whisky lactone with hits of off-oxidised plum notes. The mouth is suprisingly round and full and nbt what I was expecting (thin, acidic)... but sadly the mouth is on its way out too. If you have any of this drink it now. There really isn't more to say.
