    This comes from 35 year old vines on the hills of Chavignol. Cuve aged, it has a lovely, bright pale colour with greeny glints.  On the nose it offers pure, restrained sauvignon, with an evident salty character and hint of iodine which follows through on the palate with a touch of lemon, ripe grapefruit, fennel and blackcurrant leaf. For drinking now to 2021+.

    This outstanding wine comes from 40 year old vines located on the central, finest plot of this famous hillside. Vinified in three to four year old barrels (good Tronçais oak), then aged in cuve, it was bottled in August 2015. Restrained on the nose, it has much more evident weight and exotic fruit, then becomes really quite racy with salty, iodiney notes on the finish. For drinking now to 2023.

    This comes from 30 to 60 year old vines that were until recently in the ownership of Bourges Cathedral for 500 years! The vineyard is very steep and south-east facing, helping to give the wine a little more backbone, nerve and salinity than the due south facing Monts Damnés. Vinified in cuve, then aged 100% in three and four year old 300 litre barrels, it will age magnificently. For drinking now to 2025+.

    One of Boulay’s top cuvées this comes from the same Grande Côte hillside as the Cotat wine of the same name. A due south facing hillside, the soil here is much chalkier than Monts Damnés. It gives an entirely different range of more exotic flavours with passion fruit to the fore with a menthol hint, but at the same time retains good tension and is firmly structured, vital and grippy with a saline twist on the finish. For drinking now to 2023.

    Is there a better rose than this anywhere in France? 100% pinot noir from old vines gives this supremely elegant wine with fine fruit, saline minerality and a sustained finish.
