2005 Domaine Lucien Boillot & Fils Pommard 波馬 - 布瓦洛酒莊
From the Les Combes vineyard along the edge of Volnay, Boillot’s 2005 Pommard allies bitter cherry, smoked meat and rather obvious, foursquare tannin typical for village-level Pommard with attractive floral top notes and distinct chalkiness more reflective of Volnay. There is certainly enough juiciness, sap, and concentration , a strong finish, and the potential to age well for at least 5-7 years.
Also recommended: 2005 Fixin (unknown; 85-87).
Having moved from Volnay to a newly-expanded facility he shares with his wife, Ghislaine Barthod, Louis Boillot fields a large and geographically diverse range of generally impressive, pure-fruited Pinots. (In rating them, I have left some leeway to allow for my previous unfamiliarity with Louis Boillot’s wines.)
