The 7th and final GC White Burgundy. A mineral slatey nose with lovely citric acid , white peach and some toast. Medium bodied - in its infancy with great potential and energy. An ongoing theme of power and tension with these Grand Cru white Burgundies. As a general summary of the 7 Grand Cru White Burgundies they were outstanding and probably the best expressions of Chardonnay on earth. Are they worth the ever increasing $$$$s? Probably not - all in the eye of the beholder but they are incredible. Once again the monks were right in selecting the plots they did over a 1000 years ago. — 17 hours ago
Nose is singing. Gorgeous nose. Bright mid season cherries, sous bois, tea, even some marijuana, sour cherries, cranberry and such purity, minerality and depth. Such a soaring nose. Palate is gorgeous and deep with sappy sour cherries, a hit of opulence and good concentration but not overly concentrated. Sappy and so pure. Balance is out of this world. Incredible energy and so so engaging. Lovey mid palate that caresses but also prickles as well with buoyant acidity. Awesome inner mouth aromas that saturate the palate with fruit. Lovely velvety and gorgeously integrated tannins. This is drinking so well now but will surely age. Such a well made wine. Elegance, serious terroir and depth at this pricepoint is what Pernand 1er Crus do best. — 10 days ago
Nose so good you wish your lungs had an exit so you could inhale nonstop.
Palate. Dense. Almost sticky. Unctuous. Great fruit. Sweet fruit. Almost tropical. Honey. Clings to the palate. Very well made.
At 3 hours almost like this sherry like butteriness. Not oxidized but the controlled richness. Becoming godlike epic level insane.
Nose is nutty

The 2nd wine in the Grand Cru White Burgundy lineup tasted blind. Amazingly no new wood although wood is noticeable (a caramel note) - only 1 Barrique is produced. Muted fruit on the palate with great acid. Lighter at this young age but with great energy and obviously a great future. Planted at the crazy density of 24,000 vines per hectare on a tiny plot of 0.05 hectare. That’s only 500 square meters or 10 metres x 50 metres. Only 3 bottles came to Australia!! — 2 days ago
This is spectacular right now. Great purity with lifted lemon, hints of honey and softened white floral notes. It has a great balancing salinity on the mid palate and real complexity. Starting to show some of the secondary notes of age/ oxidation but in a really good place. Given those notes I’ll probably drink the next of these soon in case they turn. Wonderful stuff. The best pucelles I’ve had from Boillot — 4 days ago
Classic burgundy feel with a lot of red fruit and some oak & spice notes — 17 days ago
Wine No. 5 in the 2016 white Grand Cru lineup tasted blind. We knew the identities but not the order of service. A very intense mineral nose with plenty of struck match/sulphur white flesh fruits. Quite reductive. Medium plus verging on profound intensity on the palate. Everything about this wine is intense and powerful. A long future ahead. Would rate a higher score once the sulphur blows off. Proves again that 2016 in certain areas was a very good vintage for whites. After the initial frost everything went well. — 18 hours ago
Great mineral and acid - also struck match sulphury notes. Muted fruit on nose. Noticeable oak. With these GC White Burgundies the oak is usually very evident in the wine’s youth which balances out at 7 to 10 years. Vines are more than 40 years old. Again, huge potential: Jancis says of the drinking window: 2025 to 2040. From one of the most reputable White Burgundy producers in Leflaive. — 2 days ago
