Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. Among eight Chambertin 2011s tasted blind, Henri Boillot’s has the most opulent and showy bouquet with lavish red cherries, kirsch, orange peel and rose petal scents that all want attention…now. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, quite high acidity with an edgy, almost brittle finish. Still, there is fine persistency here with tangy marmalade and minerals lingering on the aftertaste.
