Just to keep you on your toes, I though I should try and slip through another Pommard. Very good it was too!
2003 Louis Boillot, Pommard 1er Les Croix Noires
Medium-plus cherry-red. The nose is wide, eventually high-toned, complex and interesting – provided you keep it cool, otherwise it (like many 2003’s) becomes quite diffuse. Very well textured – there’s a lot of tannin, but it’s very well done, and very well covered. There was obviously plenty of oak at release, but there has been a very quick take-up and this is rather well made and impressive – a modern vernacular for sure, but very well done. Impressive juice!
Rebuy – Yes
Seems ‘the pour’ is still in Burgundy – this time enjoying ‘lunch‘
