Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Corbeaux, Domaine Lucien Boillot, 2009 $570.00

Nicola's Tasting Note:

Deep red black to less intense on the rim, with sweet, sappy black fruits on the nose, musky and crunchy, leading to a juicy red fruit palate with substantial tannins behind, butterscotch and some herbal notes going to a nicely concentrated finish. Subtle but very fine.

Grower Information: Based in Gevrey-Chambertin, Pierre Boillot of Domaine Lucien Boillot, owns vineyards across the Côte d'Or including some excellent Premier Crus in Gevrey-Chambertin in the Côte de Nuits and in Volnay in the Côte de Beaune. Pierre and his brother Louis who inherited the Domaine jointly separated their holdings from the 2003 vintage and Pierre has subsequently stopped using herbicides, lowered yields and uses less oak. As a result each successive vintage produced by Pierre shows more finesse and complexity. Pierre Boillot is something of a traditionalist and believes that his wines should show their terroir through minimal intervention in the cellar so he concentrates the work on the vineyards to ensure that perfectly ripe, healthy grapes are harvested. New wood is kept to no more than 25 - 30% on Premiers Crus, and the wines undergo a long maceration post-fermentation to extract the colour and tannins, meaning that they are very tight for the first 4 - 5 years, broadening with age.
