Finally some days of! It is a great feeling coming home, reaching into the fridge and pulling out a bottle of fermented grape juice. A great start of this evening!
2007 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Mouchere, Domaine Henri Boillot
This Monopole wine starts off intense, deep and a touch restrained. With air beautiful aromas of lemon and orange peel, cold butter, pears, white peaches and fudge emerge. Very deep. Later a fine note of warm gravel appears. This has been in contact with some new, expensive oak. Gorgeous.
The taste is as intense and focued as the nose. Lots of sweet yellow fruit, a tight structure and a lovely, refreshing acidity. The only downside I can find is that the structure is a tad too strict, maybe due to its young age, but I sense that is it always gonna be this way. This will not likely turn out like its slutty older sibling, like the 1985 and the 1992, that were sultry and seductive from the get go. But still, a very fine bottle of Chardonnay.
