I'm familiar with this producer, but the first time seeing this single lieu-dit (Les Sentiers) selection. Very nice effort here. Double decanted with 2H rest. 93-94 — 5 days ago
Some serious power and amplitude here. Vibrantly fruited, supported by the deep chalky tones of this terroir. Oro blanco, candied pear, quince, some exotic tones like pineapple and mango. There’s an underlying grip and phenolic bite, thick skins, adding extra dimension. The cool herbs break late and more with aeration, aloe and chervil. Classic Boulay in its pleasure factor. — 21 days ago
Let the wine rest and warm a bit for the aroma and flavors to come forward after opening. Citrus, bright acidity, green apple. — 8 days ago
