"A conscientious grower with a growing collection of old vines, Boulay's wines - while delicious in youth - can be riveting after 7-12 years. Sourced from old vines in a steep site which a retiring vigneron in 2004 offered Boulay the opportunity to begin farming, the 2005 Sancerre Mont Damnes smells alluringly of honeysuckle and lime, comes to the palate creamy in texture, with a lush mingling of lime, pink grapefruit and honey that is almost late-harvest in character, and finshes with a hint of sweetness backing succulent honeydew melon and sorbet-like grapefruit. Unlike its Clos de Beaujeu sibling, this is possessed of both a cooling, minty streak and a considerable impression of chalky, salty minerality. Boulay's having retained in tank and then blended back a portion of Mont Damnes has helped it retain cut and freshness for the vintage." -

"Bright straw. Incisive citrus, quince, fresh herb and mineral aromas are pure and expansive. Deeply concentrated as well as energetic, with medium body, chewy texture and powerful orchard and citrus fruit flavors enlivened by zesty minerality. Finishes on a tangy lemon zest note, with mouthwatering acidity and outstanding length." - 92 Points - Josh Raynolds - Stephen Tanzer's IWC
