|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Five parcels of vines in Enseignères, a bit in Rue Rousseau and another in Les Meix, all vineyards that are tucked up under Bâtard, Bienvenues and Pucelles, so no wonder this cuvée is consistently good. Expressive, round and gourmand, very 'jolly', with a relaxed feel and just a slight saline, tautening mineral freshness. Very Puligny. Stays supple and calm and gently long.

Pale greenish straw. Very seductive smoky intense nose in this house’s style. Edgy and chock-full of savoury fruit. There are many premiers crus without this much charm. Not fat; this producer has slimmed down along with everyone else. The only sacrifice may be in longevity.

The 2014 Puligny-Montrachet Village is blessed with a charming, surprisingly mineral-rich, smoky bouquet that repays aeration in the glass, so do not be afraid to decant this. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with a fine line of acidity, impressive weight in the mouth, perhaps just requiring a tad more tension to come through on the finish. Still, this is an excellent village cru from Jean-Marc Boillot.

Pale bright yellow. Fruit-driven white peach and apple aromas and flavors. Good sappy village wine with more depth than the Meursault, as well as an impression of sucrosité. Nicely integrated acidity frames and extends the rich finish. In an easygoing style but very dry, at 0.9 grams per liter residual sugar. The vintage in general finished very dry, noted Boillot, who vinifies with selected yeast strains.

Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot: Full Wine List and Profile
Jean-Marc Boillot left the family domaine to be winemaker to Olivier Leflaive for five years. Then from his maternal grandfather Étienne Sauzet he inherited much of the vineyard of the old Domaine Sauzet, in some of the best vineyards of Puligny, and with this holding and others from his paternal side, he set up his own business. He makes wines that show well young, with complex exotic fruit aromas with the core of minerality, but they age well too. His daughter Lydie and son are now taking a more active role in the domaine, and they have branched out with a thriving négociant business and a property near the Pic Saint Loup in the Languedoc - Domaine des Roques.
