2015 Marsannay Les Boivins
’I happened to run across this lovely effort from Philippe Collotte and despite it being a 2015, it is still in the market place at a very reasonable price. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
A notably ripe yet still very fresh nose speaks of earth and spice-inflected poached plum, cassis and a hint of wood. There is excellent richness to the dense, delicious and solidly intense medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by firm but not hard tannins on the lingering and ever-so-mildly rustic finish. While there is a hint of back-end warmth, overall this is quite well
balanced and is a wine that could be enjoyed now for its fruit or held for mid-term cellaring. Worth checking out. Drink 2023+.’ 90 points, Burghound, January 2019.
