pommard #9 + a 2004 delivery

boillot jarollieres
#9 of my pre-Christmas Pommard odyssey
2000 J-M Boillot, Pommard 1er Jarollièrestry to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus ruby-red colour. The fruit on the nose is just as sweet as the previous Rossignol, but it’s darker coloured at the edge with a red core, faint coffee too – very fetching! Less ripe palate than the Rossignol – almost mouth-puckering by comparison with a higher level of tannin. This is, however, very complex in the mid-palate and longer too.
Rebuy – Maybe

The good news of the day is that my en-primeur purchases have just been delivered – though it seems odd timing given that I’ve drunk so much 04 already this year:

  • 2004 Bouchard P & F, Volnay 1er Cuvée Carnot
  • 2004 D & F Clair, St.Aubin 1er Dents de Chien
  • 2004 Jadot, Beaune 1er Clos des Ursules
  • 2004 JF Mugnier, Musigny
  • 2004 M & P Rion, Chambolle 1er Charmes
  • 2004 M & P Rion, Nuits 1er, Les Argillières

I wonder if that was their (Rion’s) plot that the horse was ploughing last Friday(?) Anyway, even better news; my mixed 18 bottles also arrived – so plenty to do between now and the end of the year – I might not even need to buy any more wine this year!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
