2010 Bouton Gilles, Blagny Sous Le PuitsApr. 2012
Rather paler colour than previous vintages. The aroma is rather faint but with a warm, slightly dark sweetness. Some silkiness and a decent balance of acidity. The flavour is rather understated, and far from unpleasant – what’s missing is a little concentration and engagement. Quite pretty but missing much of what I expect from this producer’s version. Lifted only by a pretty red cherry fruit in the decently long finish.
2009 Bouton Gilles, Blagny Sous Le PuitsJun. 2011
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose has a lot of sweet and easy 2009 about it, but eventually the cuvée’s dark herby aroma is present in the background. Rounder, sweet but with a good background of tannin and acidity, much more interesting than the simple start of the nose some minerality towards the finish too. A wine that really gains character in the glass.
2008 Bouton Gilles, Blagny Sous Le PuitsJun. 2011
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose is super, there’s the cuvée’s signature dark and slightly herby core, but above is a wonderful bloom of of high-toned violets an fresh black cherry. Seems rounder and more concentrated that the 09, just a litlle fat to the texture. A nice little extra dimension of fruit in the mid-palate. Lovely wine!
2006 Bouton Gilles, Blagny Sous Le PuitsJun. 2011
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose starts a little tight but shows a dark core of glossy fruit. Silky with a slowly building tannin – it remains subtle and has a bitter-chocolate edge. The dark fruit flavour grows in tandem and is really quite impressive in the mid-palate, it holds quite well too. Tight yet with clean lines and a decent depth of fruit. Very nice.
2007 Bouton Gilles, Blagny Sous Le PuitsJun. 2011
Hmm, how very, very similar to the 2006. Not quite as tight, but a few redder fruit notes aside this could be the same wine. Medium, plus colour. Both dark fruits and red fruits on the nose – it’s quite deep but not wide. In the mouth the very same flavour perspective as the 2006; perhaps faintly less acidity but it’s marginal. Impressed.
2009 Bouton Gilles, Blagny Sous Le PuitsApr. 2011
Certainly a lesser-spotted wine – but with great merit – to the producer too for not ripping out the vines for more profit; chardonnay equals Puligny-Montrachet here! Very fine red fruit aromas. Full and round. A good concentration of flavour – which seems to keep growing. Super-fine and lovely!
