Beaune 1er Cru "Les Epenottes" 2007, Jean-Marc Boillot
Courtesy of the Bibendum Burgundy tasting 2007. The Epenottes parcel is one of the top Beaune 1er crus which lies on the road between Beaune and Pommard. This Beaune has a bright cherry colour; it's got smoke, red berry essence and floral tones when inhaled. Crisp, crunchy, tart and I'm afraid to say slightly green. Again picked on August 27th which is a shame since the better weather arrived after that and the better wines in my opinion result from grapes picked in the first two weeks of September.
