RATINGS

95Stephen Tanzer

Reticent nose hints at minerals, menthol and honey. Fresh on the attack, then almost painfully intense in the middle, with a crystalline purity to the flavors of peach, nectarine, bergamot and spices thanks to powerful minerality.

93Burghound.com

...just enough extra ripeness where hints of orchard fruit creep into the mix and continue onto the generous and sappy medium-full flavors that offer a beguiling texture and the same pungent minerality...

17Jancis Robinson

...lemon oil and herbs. Quite chewy.

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.
