Domaine Lucien Boillot et Fils, Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champonnets 1er Cru 1996

Boillot Gevrey Champonnets 1996

Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, Berkeley CA.

Maturing ruby, amber to the rim.  Quite enchanting and sweetly mature, scents of veal stock, summer truffle, clear honey.  Gossomer for a Gevrey.  The fruit is classy and focused, black in color, tastes of bilberry and plum.  He lingers nicely at the end .. only then can you tell he comes from high on the Gevrey hills, cool, savory and pointillist, a polished latticework of stone minerality.  Now.
