Another dense young Boussey 18. Glorious fruit and minerals but a wall of tannin. Needs a 2+ hour decant. Nose is gorgeous cherries. Lipstick like intensity. I’ll be back. Texture gets softer and deeper with air. I love 18 but will take a while to get there. Incredible concentration and minerals. A great wine.
9.2 to 9.3 overnight. Superb earth and red fruits. Strawberry, gorgeous classic Burgundian aromas. Palate is super juicy and sleek. Great power and depth and unreal fruit. Delicious. Way better on day 2. — 2 months ago
2016 delicious on its own. Great with chicken. Not the best with pasta. — 20 days ago

Attention wine drinkers, 2017 is awesome in Alto Piemonte and is more of a pick and choose vintage in the Langhe. It’s 2 hours north so what happens in the Langhe isn’t what happens in the Alto Piemonte.
Anyways this is a smoke show. Nose has deep, soppy late season cherries, smoke, spice, leather and minerals. Floral and ripe. Excellent purity and focus. Big wall of tannins and perfectly ripe fruit on an elegant frame. Lovely cleansing minerality on the finish. Terrific freshness. Just a great wine. Amazingly well made and super long finish. Young. Need a few hours but what a wine. — 2 months ago
