2011 Louis Boillot Pommard Croix Noires

"The 2011 la Croixe Noire is an absolutely brilliant wine in the making, soaring from the glass in a blaze of red and black cherries, dark soil tones, a touch of blood orange, woodsmoke, gamebirds, fresh herbs and a very stylish base of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with stunning transparency, great mid-palate depth and a very long, tangy and ripely tannic finish. This is probably the greatest example of Pommard I tasted on the entire trip! Great wine! 2020-2055+." [+]
