2006 Boisset Jean-Claude, Morey St.Denis Monts Luisants BlancMar. 2011
Pale yellow. The nose has hints of vanilla and botrytis – neither over-powering but it doesn’t give the impression that the wine will be a whirlwind of energy. As a complete contrast the acidity and, hence, the overall impression this wine delivers is quite ’2008′; fresh, some minerality but also still a depth of rich, faintly vanilla-inflected flavour. This is a very, very successful wine for the vintage – it’s so good in-fact, I could even be tempted to buy more, even though there was only one barrel! Yum!
2007 Boisset Jean-Claude, Morey St.Denis Monts Luisants BlancJul. 2009
A wine I bought in quantity with a 2006 label. Pale colour – high-toned and fresh – a single 1 year old barrel was needed for the production of 270 bottles. Very pure, density with balance. Good length. Not as tropical as the 06, but it’s fine and lovely.
2007 Dujac, Morey St.Denis Monts Luisants BlancJul. 2009
Pale yellow. The nose is more understated than the villages but offers up a finer selection of agrume style aromas. Flowing acidity, minerality and a wonderful intensity – even nervosity. I am smitten by this. A beautiful, beautiful wine.
2006 Boisset Jean-Claude, Morey St.Denis Monts Luisants BlancJul. 2008
One of the rarer bottlings by JCBoisset winemaker Gregory Patriat – a single barrel, 295 bottles. Pale lemon yellow. A nose of creamy oak and bright pineapple fruit that slowly fades. Well textured and with perfect acidity. The flavours are ripe – not too much so – and tasty, but far from simple, I even imageine (perhaps) a little aniseed and coconut. Slowly fades. A super wine, and a fine buy.
