Wine Review

Troullier’s 2007 Boreal smells of ripe cherry, cassis, bacon fat, violet and gentian, a combination reminiscent of Cote Rotie. These elements combine with an emerging charred, roasted red meat character on an expansive and finely-tannic palate, and hints of black pepper offer stimulating counterpoint in a mouthwateringly savory and juicily-fruited finish. There is a strong sense of sheer density here, yet allied to animation and lift. This impressive offering should merit continuing to follow through at least 2022. -Wine Advocate
