Domaine Henri Boillot Les Caillerets Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

$95

Full, bright ruby. Multidimensional nose offers black cherry, licorice, violet, bitter chocolate, mint and minerals. Hugely sweet but impeccably balanced, with great mid-palate purity and delineation to its explosive flavors of black fruits, licorice and crushed stone. Wonderfully fine-grained wine with an expanding finish of uncanny lift and length. This could be Exhibit A for those who maintain that the best 2009s from the Cote de Beaune are Cote de Nuits-like in their complexity, structure and class. Stephen Tanzer

Still a fair bit of oak here. Terrific nonetheless. Loving 09 burgs right now!

This vineyard site can do no wrong for me in a great year.

Really intense Pinot Noir that loosened up and became more aromatic as the night progressed. Good with the rich food at Robuchon au Dome

2009 vintage. Would benefit from aging but more than approachable now. Early had notes of darker fruit like plum blackberries and cassis. As it opened over the course of 2 hours it became more complex as slight acidity started to come out and the fruit forwardness backed off giving an intellectually interesting complexity combine with a medium body in the mouth.

Too young to appreciate fully, a bit rigid but opens up slowly after 2 hours. Beautiful wine, so Volnay in style
