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! — a day ago
Tilts more toward vintage than producer.
A ripe nose of peach, pears and flowers . In the mouth a wine that most producers would be very happy to produce but for Roulot this was a little more tropical fruit than one would expect. Fruit with weight but not flabby , very balanced with acid one level down . Nice finish with no alcohol heat. — 5 days ago
Nose is youthful. Mineral, waxey, lemony, rich, nutty, tree bark. Cannot believe how youthful. Nose has huge tight focus and clarity. Floral. Hint of creaminess. Wow. Complex and youthful with incredible depth snd minerality. Superb. Elegant. Sappy. — 4 days ago
Superb nose, white fruit, some butter, classic and the palate follows suit with great texture, just a touch of sourness on the finish.
Superbe nez, fruits blancs, beurre, à peine miellé, la bouche est sur le même registre, assez droite mais avec une belle texture, seule note discordante une légère amertume un peu trop prononcée en finale. 90-91 — 7 days ago
Nose has oak-ey pineapple purée, orange peel, oxidized green apple, dried white florals, orange blossom, wet river rocks and dry sandstone (go figure!).
Palate has warmed lemon slice, lemon zest, orange zest, very mineral-ey water, day old buttered popcorn, lemon pith, toasted barrel and warmed sandstone. Very nice, long finish, wanting another sip...
Decanted 3H, more time, and years appreciated. Future bottles should be 2025+.
Inaugural bottle from an OWC 6-pack my lovely wife surprised me with about a month ago, guess she really knows what I love, aside from her and the fur-kids, it's Chardonnay! — 14 days ago
