Gérard Boulay, 2015 Update

During my ongoing rediscovery of Sancerre I don’t think I have yet come across any wines as exciting as those of Gérard Boulay. From the entry-level wines with their bold yellow labels, up to the more refined appearances of the single-vineyard cuvées from all the top sites of Chavignol, I have yet to find any wines that match these for complexity of flavour and minerally confidence. These are wines of considerable merit, true grands vins which, while they drink well young, will also surely age nicely too.

Since first encountering them I have been trying to keep track of Gérard’s wines. Unfortunately during a recent flying visit to Sancerre I didn’t have time to call in on him, instead using my time in the region to visit some domaines I had never visited before. I have started publishing my reports on these other visits, having begun with my Domaine Thomas-Labaille profile this week, and I will continue with more new profiles in the immediate future. In the meantime here are my thoughts on the latest releases from Gérard, all wines tasted at home.
