94 Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar: "The 2015 Sancerre "La Comtesse" from Domaine Gérard Boulay is the most minerally in profile out of the blocks of all the estate's cru bottlings, with the elegance that this terroir had long been renowned for very much in evidence. The complex bouquet wafts from the glass in a mix of lemon, green apple, chalky minerality, a hint of oyster shell, gentle botanicals and a 11 pungent topnote of lemon blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very much defined by its minerality, with a fine core of fruit, bright acids, excellent focus and grip and a very long, very youthful and gently peppery finish. This is one of the most impressively reserved examples of the 2015 vintage in Sancerre that I have tasted, which augurs very well indeed for its future evolution in bottle. First class juice!" 05/17
