(13.8% natural alcohol, from vines picked on August 29; entirely destemmed): Bright medium red. Very ripe aromas of raspberry, cherry pit, coffee and mocha. Big, broad and savory, offering concentrated flavors of red berries, dusty spices and earth. This light soil on the Pommard side of Volnay features a lot of little rocks but also a strong clay influence. This wine finished its sugar fermentation in barriques, which has given it more gras, noted Boillot. Finishes salty and long, with substantial but fully ripe tannins.
This is slightly riper than the Chevrets though it remains quite fresh with its aromas of plum liqueur, spice and soft floral nuances. There is exceptional richness to the concentrated, suave and highly seductive flavors that are shaped by a firm lashing of tannin on the ever-so-mildly warm finish. Note that this will require at least some patience. 92/2025+
