Pals straw-yellow. Spicy aromas of musky stone fruits, smoke and noble herbs, plus a whiff of pepper. Juicy, spicy and intense if a bit reduced, showing moderate complexity to its white peach and spice flavors. In a classically dry style.

The 2011 Puligny-Montrachet is a big, boisterous wine. There is plenty of depth and intensity, but the style is a bit obvious relative to Boillot's very finest village-level offerings. Apricots, pear eau de vie, hazelnuts and pears linger on the finish. The Puligny includes a portion of fruit from the premier cru Les Enseignières.

A top producer for red and white alike. Henri and his son Guillaume have now moved all the vinification and élevage out of Volnay entirely in order to have all the wine in one place (down on the plain in Meursault). Not so 'folklorique', but a better tool to reach even higher quality levels. After six years working alongside Henri, Guillaume has been entirely responsible for the vinification of the reds since 2013 - Henri's contribution is henceforth entirely on the whites, but one senses this is really Guillaume's show now. Guillaume's major input on the reds was to end the practice of autmatically de-stemming everything - there is now some use of whole bunches and the wines have gained in definition and energy as a result, without losing the luxurious velvety richness and fruit depth that they have always had.
