That's a hell of a wine for the price. This along with Jean Paul Brun's Côte de Brouilly and LaPierre and Foillard are great examples of how good a wine Bojo can be.
We had a pretty interesting tasting experiment the other night. Playing around with the idea of finishing Chardonnay in tank after 10-14 months in barrel to induce yeast autolysis, we consulted Jeffrey Patterson's results. Starting, I think, in 2007, he's been doing six months in tank following barrel time for a "reserve" Chardonnay.
I really liked the 07s, though the difference between the estate and the reserve is a somewhat fine adjustment. The 08s need some more time. Interesting in contrast to his current releases, which we tasted last week when we visited. His wines are truly meant to be drunk with several years in bottle. he recommends ten. The '10 Pinot Noir is fan-freaking-tastic, by the way, and the '09 chard too.Edited by Quatsch - 11/16/12 at 10:41am
