The Pommard Rugiens 1962 from Henri Boillot is a quite fantastic old wine. The bouquet is slighly shy and aloof offering red fruit – mainly raspberries – and a quite powerfull minerality. On the palate a beautiful juicy fruit, crisp acidity with layers of complexity. The fruit is offering notes of coffee, coconut and chocolate, but is stil very red and youthfull. The balance is fantastic with a rich juicy fruit, a fantastic acidity and a powerfull somewhat austere terroir. Mature but will no doubt live for another decade or two – Very Impressive!
