2012 BOURGOGNE ROUGE Domaine Henri Boillot
‘A ripe nose of red and dark currant aromas is liberally laced with earth nuances that continue onto the very rich and delicious flavors.

For early enjoyment.’ Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (April 2014)

Other reviews and comments
‘Vibrant cherries and lively fruit with lifted strawberry and floral notes on the mid palate. Enjoy young. Tasted in: Burgundy, France.’ Jeannie Cho Lee MW, Decanter (Nov 2013)
‘Red stone fruits, raspberries, flowers and anise all take shape in the 2012 Bourgogne. Racy and expressive to the core, the 2012 captures the fleshy, racy personality of the year in an accessible style that is ideal for drinking over the near term.’ 2013-22 88-89 Antonio Galloni (Jan 2014)
Domaine Henri Boillot – Full wine list
Domaine Henri Boillot is now one of the very top producers of the Côte de Beaune, in 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 this year – can you tell??
