International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 134

(at the end of its malo) Ripe aromas of apple, pear and clove. Densely packed and tactile, with superb richness and concentration and a deep core of spice. Best today on the finish, which features soil-driven flavors of crushed stone and menthol. Not a particularly austere style of Corton-Charlemagne but this will be better for extended cellaring.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 180

Boillot boldly presented his 2006 Corton-Charlemagne after his rich grand crus from around Montrachet - presumably a measure of his confidence in its quality. Fresh lime, high-toned herbal distillates, kirsch, and brown spices in the nose lead to a cool, refreshing, herbal, chalky palate impression and a finish of incredible grip: chalky, saline, savory, and with faintly bitter hints of cherry pit. This is very Chablis-like, but in its striking mineral expression and its brightness, more like a super premier cru Chablis than a grand cru. Once again, Boillot has managed to capture an energy, concentration, and finishing penetration that are exceptional even by the standards of this outstanding vintage. I anticipate this being worth following for a dozen years, if not longer.
