Domaine Louis Boillot et Fils, Beaune Les Cent Vignes 1er Cru 2011

Louis Boillot Beaune Cent Vignes 2011 #1Translucent ruby.  Cherubic yet suave and fresh like an altoid: mentholated cherry, cool violet, savory underbrush.  Succulent black and red fruit, the flatter mid-slope of Les Cent Vignes offering more pronounced density and weight through the middle.  Good grip.  Just a hint of astringency to the tannins – overall, these are ripe and of good quality.  Sweet celeriac and a touch of spicy minerality at the end.  Will come forward soon.  From 2014.
