RATINGS

94Burghound.com

...more reserved and slightly cooler nose is more overtly floral in character while displaying notes of mineral reduction and fennel hints. Once again, the mouthfeel of the medium weight and intensely mineral-driven flavors is exceptionally fine while delivering superb length on the equally well-balanced finish...

93+ The Wine Advocate

Notes of citrus oil, white flowers, iodine, beeswax and crushed rocks...medium to full-bodied, satiny and chiseled wine that's chalky and mineral, with lively acids and notable reserves of structuring dry extract.

PRODUCER

Henri Boillot

Maison Henri Boillot is owned and operated by Henri Boillot, a fifth-generation vigneron in the Côte d’Or and the proprietor of one of Burgundy’s most impressive estates. In 1984 Henri left the family estate to start his own negociant business. He later rejoined the estate and bought out his brother and sister, changing the name of the estate to reflect his sole ownership. His brother owns the similarly-named Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot. Maison Henri Boillot owns a total of 35 acres, mostly in premier cru vineyards in Volnay, Beaune, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. Boillot does not use pesticides or chemicals in his vineyards, and vines are heavily pruned for low yields. The vineyards are evenly split between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Wine Advocate has noted that Boillot wines are “excellent representatives of the fundamental character one has come to expect” from the legendary premier cru vineyards of Volnay, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet.
