Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot, Volnay Les Pitures 1er Cru 1999

Imported by Vineyard Brands, Birmingham AL.

Fifteen years on tasting.

Radiant ruby core, watery rim.  Starts with a hint of mocha-scented reduction.  Then declamatory, lapidary and peaty: you sense its Pommard proximity.  The fruit is densely-layered, carnal and piquant, such is the interplay of sharp focus and spherical fleshiness.  Still tannic and grippy demeanor.  Lots and lots of minerality: impovished brown topsoil over marl and limestone here, penetrating and long.  Intensely Pitures and still not yet at its majority.  Now – 2025+.
