Domaine Lucien Boillot et Fils, Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cherbaudes 1er Cru 1999

Lucien Boillot Gevrey Cherbaudes 1999

Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, Berkeley, CA.

Carmine.  These are his oldest Gevrey vines, some now a century of age, and it shows.  Thicker through the middle.  Texturally, this is more velvet than silk.  Flavors are of the forest, green-shady, fungal.  Rising up and out through the end; peacock’s tail finish.  Shows the class of this climat, situated just below Chambertin-Clos de Beze.  Now – 2020+.
