My inexperience is the same as yours. I had no experience with this producer prior to the 2000 vintage. From tasting it up to about a year ago, I expected it to develop more slowly than the wine showed the other night.
Given Jenise's comments that her Olivets have shown bottle variation, with some developing faster than others, I'm going to give my remaining three Bois de Boursan bottles some time...say one in a year to 18 mos and see what has happened, then decide on the rest.
I don't think these are ready to head downhill or anything, just suprised by how fast the one came along and how open it was.
