The Whole Range Of 2010 Puligny-Montrachet From Henri Boillot

These wines were tasted at a recent tasting dinner at S. He seems to be storing his wines in some cryo facility since all the wines appeared much younger than the vintage on the label (more notes are on their way). 
These Puligny´s were racy, crisp and still young, even the village. All tasted double blind.

2010 Puligny-Montrachet, Henri Boillot
A stony, fresh nose with notes of cucumber, lemon and fennel. Spicy and fine. 
The taste is finely tuned and mineral laden with lots of lemon and grassy notes. Very, very good. 3+ years.

2010 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières, Henri Boillot
A fresh, handsome nose with notes of cold butter, grey pears and chrushed rocks. Very fine.

2010 Puligny-Montrachet Les Caillerets, Henri Boillot
