Wild black raspberry mocha earth leather and menthol on the nose with a note of minerality emerging with air. Tightly wound and rather inexpressive today but already showing excellent calcaire punch to its saline soil tones. The vibrant back end features serious tannins that saturate the mouth and reach the front teeth. Fremiets was the first vineyard Boillot harvested in 2010 and this wine will almost certainly need seven or eight years of bottle aging to deliver on its potential.

Dark cherries cola mocha licorice and tar literally explode from the glass in this full-bodied opulent Burgundy. Even with its super-ripe almost extreme expression of fruit there is more than enough minerality to provide balance. The Fremiets is not for the faint of heart but it is a beautiful wine in its own way. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030. -Antonio Galloni

This was noticeably reduced and I strongly advise decanting it if you're going to try an example young. By contrast there is good vivacity to the detailed and pure middle weight flavors that are shaped by extremely fine tannins that are notably more structured than the villages. At present the flavor profile is quite compact and firm and this will require at least 10 years to be at its best and 12 would not surprise me. ♥ - Comments: Sweet spot Outstanding
