Lucien Boillot Gevrey-Chambertin 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin|
Old-vine Pinot Noir blended from several sites across Gevrey-Chambertin provides a textbook rendition of this village, all while staying honest to the soulful, pure-fruited Boillot style and the lusciousness of the vintage. Gevrey’s characteristic brawn is enveloped in a sumptuous cushion of dark fruit, rendering it immediately attractive notwithstanding the structure lurking beneath. You could cellar it for a decade…but why not just pull the cork now?
Impressively rich youthful purple. This is hugely weighty for a village Gevrey yet still attractively fresh. It offers layers of different red fruits. Very good indeed, doubtless helped by being a blend from 12 plots all round the village.
