Suggestion from April 22 2015
Wine: 2011 Pommard
Producer: Domaine Henri Boillot
Comment: An attractively fresh, ripe and cool if not especially elegant nose speaks of red and blue pinot fruit that evidences plenty of earth influence. There is a fine sense of detail and plenty of underlying tension to the lightly mineral filled medium-bodied flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a balanced finish that delivers fine depth and length. As with the Volnay villages, this boxes well above its stated weight.
