Domaine Henri Boillot Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

Ratings on Delectable

Bob McDonald Delectable Pro

Wine No. 5 in the 2016 white Grand Cru lineup tasted blind. We knew the identities but not the order of service. A very intense mineral nose with plenty of struck match/sulphur white flesh fruits. Quite reductive. Medium plus verging on profound intensity on the palate. Everything about this wine is intense and powerful. A long future ahead. Would rate a higher score once the sulphur blows off. Proves again that 2016 in certain areas was a very good vintage for whites. After the initial frost everything went well.
