DescriptionDomaine Louis Boillot & Fils, Les Caillerets, Volnay Premier Cru, France 2009
BURGHOUNDA more deeply pitched yet more elegant nose combines both red and blue pinot fruit, wet stone and subtle spice hints that complement to perfection the intensely mineral-driven, delineated and refined middle weight flavors that possess simply stunning complexity and outstanding length. This manages that rare feat of delivering both power and finesse. In a word, terrific.
VINOUS(from vines picked on September 6 with 12.8% potential alcohol): Good bright medium red. Black cherry and violet aromas are lifted by a minty high note. Juicy and penetrating on the palate, with intense, slightly high-toned flavors of blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate. Quite sappy and focused for the year, with strong minerality lifting the fruit. Plenty of tannic spine here but the tannins are sweet and ripe.
