Gerard Boulay Sancerre Comtesse 2019



“From 50-75 year old vines located in the sweet spot of the Mont Dam­nés vineyard (bottom of the slope, near Clos La Neore of Vatan), this is often the most powerful wine from Boulay’s lineup. Vintage 2005 was the inaugural release. “Monsieur Boulay makes his La Comtesse bottling from a couple of parcels of fifty-year-old vines in the heart of the Monts Damnés, with one section right alongside Edmond Vatan’s Clos la Néore and the other just a touch higher up the slope. The 2013 is outrageously fine, delivering a magically complex nose of lemon, tangerine, cut grass, white flowers, a very complex base of chalky minerality, citrus peel and fresh tarragon. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and so elegant on the attack that it is almost silky in texture, with great mid-palate intensity, superb focus and grip, racy acids and brilliant complexity on the very long and snappy finish. Another absolutely astonishing Sancerre! 2014-2035+.”
