Critic Notes

Here too there is a moderate application of oak surrounding the very spicy and pungently earthy mélange of red and dark currant aromas that display just a hint of the sauvage. There is excellent richness, size, weight and volume to the velvet-textured medium weight plus flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration before culminating in an impressively persistent if ever-so-slightly bitter finish. The underlying tannins appear to be fully ripe and I would attribute the bitterness to the wood treatment which should round out with a few years of bottle age. Tasted: Apr 15, 2014. Drink: 2024+

Score: 91-/100Allen Meadows, Burghound

The 2012 Pommard Village has a conservative, strict nose with tightly wound scents of blackberry leaf and briary. The palate is well-balanced, quite succulent and Volnay-like with a prickle of spice towards the finish. This is fine for a village cru although personally I prefer the Volnay village this year.

Joseph Colin - The new Domaine on the Cote de Beaune Block
The family name Colin is a hard one to escape in the Cote de Beaune, with a handful of prolific producers dotted around Saint Aubin, Puligny and Chassagne Montrachet all sharing the name.

Henri Boillot on Burgundy 2018
The Vintage Henri Boillot is widely seen as the top micro-negociant for the production of the Cote d’Or’s finest white wines, including Le Montrachet. He abhors heavy whites therefore expect the style of his white wines to be lean, precise and razor-sharp. His red wine profile however is notably different. Whilst he believes acidity and tension are vital for ...

Domaine Henri Boillot - Producer Portrait
As Stephen Tanzer outlines in his recent report, Henri Boillot is the first out picking on the Montrachet slopes. The combination of small production and picking early comes from a desire to retain vibrancy and energy in the wines over and above riper styles of Chardonnay found elsewhere in the Cotes de Beaune. This mineral driven “understated” yet “explosive” style ...

Burgundy 2018 EP Round-Up - F+R's Top 2018 White Wines
With all the wines now released and practically every major critic's review published, we reflect on some of the real gems in the vintage from the Cote de Beaune. Perhaps the biggest surprise about tasting the wines now in bottle was just how well the whites performed. Whilst there was plenty of hype and expectation for the reds long ...

Domaine Michel Gaunoux: Burgundy's Best Kept Secret
It has taken FINE+RARE many years to build a relationship with Domaine Michel Gaunoux but it has been well worth the effort, as the wines are spectacularly good. Deep and rich in style, they are textbook examples of red Burgundy - in terms of balance, concentration and finesse they are rivalled by very few in the Cote. They capture the ...
