2013 domaine henri boillot, volnay premier cru, fremiets
Why We're Buying
Domaine Henri Boillot Les Frémiets offers an exemplary version of Volnay. The full-bodied pinot noir has a generous mouthfeel with black cherries, plums, and raspberries embedded in subtly spicy and saline notes. Best of all, it has a lingering finish that endures for more than 30 seconds.
Bright, dark red. Reticent, rather wild aromas of dark cherry and underbrush. Energetic but backward; much tighter today than the village wine and more dominated by its structure. The wild quality carries through on the palate. Best today on the back end, where fine-grained tannins spread out to saturate the palate. Drinking range: 2019 - 2027, 90-92 Points.
