Lot #416. Gerard Boulay Sancerre Comtesse 2013

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Loire, Sancerre.
Score: 95+ JG.
"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 2013 Sancerre!" John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Sep/Oct 2014, Issue #53
Provenance: The Bilten Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $45
