Blagny , Côte De Beaune

Domaine Henri Boillot

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019

Nose has fresh lemon slice, cut green & yellow apples, Italian bread, vanilla cremé and wet slate.

Palate has fresh pineapple, cold yellow apple, white flowers, sandstone and mild vanilla notes. Great acidity (as expected in the most youthful of stages, current vintage) with some drying, chalky aspects.

Decanted 90m. Another great Boillot Bourgogne Blanc to stock the cellar with for enjoyment 2023-29.


On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our Conductors Andris Nelsons and John Williams will be leading a very engaging program of Jessie MONTGOMERY (Starburst), John WILLIAMS (Violin Concerto No. 2, world premiere featuring Anne-Sophie Mutter!), COPLAND (Quiet City) and STRAVINSKY (Suite from The Firebird, 1919 version). We're getting the luxury of enjoying Mr. Williams two nights in a row...what a great weekend of Contemporary music!

@Sharon B Yes, but we got shut down last summer because of the pandemic. So I had more time for grilling, it worked out.

Michel Rebourgeon

Meursault Chardonnay 2018

Nose has lemon zest, lemon slice, vanilla bean, crushing of flint, white wood smoke, room temperature butter, salt box and waxy yellow apple.

Palate has under-ripe pineapple, honeycomb, warm green apple, salty warm lemon, pulverized flint; concentration is amazing, finish is minutes.

Wow, Meursault I already ❤️ thee, but this is next level.

Decanted +3H, then double decanted for service tonight.

Vieilles Vignes Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Chardonnay 2018

After this weekend, it's a bit tough to get back to "regular" wines. Nevertheless, this is yummy, but see previous notes.

Day 3: this has picked up significant weight and complexity. Wow.

Stunning nose of butter, minerals, green apple, spice and florals. Salty as well. Just gorgeous. So so expressive. Palate is super. Lemony and fresh with terrific acidity and super pure. Long finish. This is no way a 15 if you served this to me blind. Even needs air. Maybe a 9.5? — 2 days ago
