Re: TN: 2008 Domaine Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère

I had the '10 Mouchere two days ago and it mostly mirrored your '08 with maybe a bit of reduction on opening. Great wine year in and year out, but sadly with the premox issues, '09 is my oldest bottle of this.

Re: 2007 Leflaive Chevalier

Thanks Don. And I too am done with Leflaive. Their new pricing should reflect all the premoxed bottles they have had until it is proven that they are back on track. And why buy Leflaive when PYCM is making such great wines??

Happy Birthday Jerry, good to see notes on Grand Cru whites and Leflaive, they seem fewer and farther between.

I might have even gotten the 2007 from you, Kris. Maybe??

Yes there are almost no notes anymore on GC whites - just too expensive.
