jean-marc boillot’s 2011 villages puligny


2011 Jean-Marc Boillot, Puligny-Montrachet
Medium-pale lemon yellow. The first few minutes after opening, this wine offers up plenty of toasty bread, but slowly this fades to leave you with a fainter vanilla and a nice clean 2010-style nose that hints of soap and a little ginger. There’s a pleasant freshness to this wine, it doesn’t offer a laser-like focus, but the acidity is decent enough and the flavour wraps nicely around your tongue. It’s very ‘easy’ wine in that 2011 vernacular and I suspect that a few 2010 Bourgognes might give it a run for its money, but that said, it was a wine that was easily enjoyed and greedily consumed!
Rebuy – Yes

    I like that: “Greedily consumed”. Queen of Chardonnay stuff by the sounds of it.
