Chambertin, Maison Henri Boillot 2006
Here the nose is even riper with ample oak notes setting off mocha, plum, warm earth and wood spice aromas that precede rich, suave and round big-bodied flavors that retain a fine sense of detail on the moderately austere, powerful and ultra intense finish that explodes with backend minerality. Despite the austerity of the finish, there is a fruit-forward character though make no mistake, this should age for at least two decades, perhaps longer. While the two wines are quite different in terms of their respective personalities, qualitatively they are essentially equivalent - a choice.
