Le Village Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

9.5

Floral. Roses. Wet earth, mid season cherries, sour cherries, violets. Expansive and expanding. Sweet cherries. So lacey and delicate. Sick inner mouth florals and such vivid fruit. Needs maybe 45 more minutes. — 10 days ago

Domaine Louis Boillot et Fils

"Les Angles" Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Very Pinot like nose, also spices and some “cellar scents” but lots of spices, the profile and palate looks Nebbiolo like with a tight, powerful and dry finish, but also lots of class and elegance, very good 91-92

Nez qui pinote un peu, quelques notes de cave, sous bois, beaucoup d’épices, un profil à l’aveugle presque de Nebbiolo, finale puissante et avec une touche asséchante, belle acidité, un vin puissant mais racé, très bon. 91-92

Domaine Henri Boillot

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019

Nose has fresh lemon slice, cut green & yellow apples, Italian bread, vanilla cremé and wet slate.

Palate has fresh pineapple, cold yellow apple, white flowers, sandstone and mild vanilla notes. Great acidity (as expected in the most youthful of stages, current vintage) with some drying, chalky aspects.

Decanted 90m. Another great Boillot Bourgogne Blanc to stock the cellar with for enjoyment 2023-29.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our Conductors Andris Nelsons and John Williams will be leading a very engaging program of Jessie MONTGOMERY (Starburst), John WILLIAMS (Violin Concerto No. 2, world premiere featuring Anne-Sophie Mutter!), COPLAND (Quiet City) and STRAVINSKY (Suite from The Firebird, 1919 version). We're getting the luxury of enjoying Mr. Williams two nights in a row...what a great weekend of Contemporary music!

@Sharon B Yes, but we got shut down last summer because of the pandemic. So I had more time for grilling, it worked out.
