Rather than an oak-based savoury and serious wine in the style of the 2004 Jadot Chardonnay, this wine (which is usually quite simple) shines with energy and flavour in 2005. It’s about 60% more expensive than the Jadot 04, but is worth the extra outlay.
2005 Jean-Marc Boillot, Montagny 1er Cru
Medium yellow. The nose is quite deep with a little spicy butterscotch, swirling releases a denser and higher-toned fruit aspect. Lithe, sweet with a kick into the mid-palate before the mouth-watering acidity rushes you into the finish. The sweetness of the ripe fruit brings fine balance. A lovely ebullient wine that is yet another contender for house wine this summer.
