j-m boillot 1995 pommard 1er jarollières

1995 Jean-Marc Boillot, Pommard 1er Les Jarollières
The last bottle of this didn’t show brilliantly, hopefully this does a little better. The colour has a much older, browner caste than I expect for a ’95. The aromas are not promising; quite beefy and hint bretty – I’m not really looking forward to putting it in my mouth! Some sweetness to the fruit, intensity too – it’s a rather macerated, spicy impression. The tannin is relatively understated and the acidity decently balanced. The texture has a reasonable soft and fat impression. Certainly much, much better than the last bottle or my I expectation given the nose. I’m thinking that there may be some slight bacterial spoilage here with this one. 10 left, hmm…
Rebuy – No

    Doesn’t sound right at all. I’ve had a few of these from 96 and 98 and they came across as young and burly. Maybe a bit too extracted for me, but very different from your description. Maybe try another one in a few months then sell the remainder if still no?

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