Domaine Lucien Boillot et Fils, Pommard Les Croix Noires 1er Cru 1993

Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, Berkeley CA.

Twenty five years on.

Carmine.  Opens and expands like first breaths after coma.  Slips its bounds to reveal faintly bitter suggestions of lavender and rosemary.  Snappy red fruit aligned to a glacé texture, finishing in a long lean line of manganese.  From vines planted in 1928.  Now – 2022+.
