2006 Le Montrachet

Henri Boillot

flagBurgundy / France

Like the Bâtard, this is incredibly backward and even more primary and if it doesn't sound like a contradiction in terms, this is subtly kaleidoscopic in its sheer aromatic breadth with a superb range of aromas and spice elements complementing the chewy, powerful and dense full-bodied flavors that have more dry extract than any wine in the Boillot line-up. This is a wonderfully muscular yet focused effort and one that is literally painful on the hugely long finish that like the Chevalier, doesn't seem to have an end. While this is bigger and richer than the Chevalier, it's not quite as refined. Fans of power, weight and size will likely prefer the Montrachet whereas fans of finesse and elegance the Chevalier. A high-class choice! Jul 2008, www.burghound.com, Drink: 2014+
