came back to the wine a couple hours later and it has tightened up, become more floral and expressive, herbal notes diminished. Nice bottle.

TN: 2009 H. Boillot Puligny Pucelles

A slight pleasing herbal note echoes across the nose and palate. Fruit is subtle and in the background with the structure in the foreground, but there’s a nice interplay of balance between the two. No hint of premox, it’s as it should be. Very pretty wine, even elegant.

I only have the 2002 Fiacre left. The 1996 started to decline a while ago, becoming quite variable. Some bottles were delicious, and others DOA, with all from the same high quality source.
